Cody Gribble and Mackenzie Hughes have both celebrated victories in their rookie campaigns on the PGA Tour this season, but what do they have to do to match the likes of Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy? We have selected five stand-out maiden seasons since the PGA Tour first introduced a Rookie of the Year award in 1990, and our quintet have amassed an impressive 26 major victories between them - although Tiger Woods accounts for more than half of those!

The likes of John Daly and Ernie Els both chalked up major wins in their first seasons as full PGA Tour members, a feat that proved out of the reach of Woods, Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth. Martin Caceres Youth Jersey . So who put together the best set of results as a rookie? Rory McIlroy, 2010Although he did not consider himself a rookie, McIlroy played his first full season as a PGA Tour member and enjoyed a successful campaign highlighted by his astonishing win at the Wells Fargo Championship, where he narrowly made the cut and shot 66-62 over the weekend to blow away a world-class field. Rory McIlroy 2010: P16, 1 win, 5 top 10s, 4 MCs He finished third at The Open despite following his opening 63 with a wind-battered 80 at St Andrews, and he was a whisker away from joining Martin Kaymer and Bubba Watson in a play-off at the PGA Championship.McIlroy enjoyed five top-10 finishes in his 16 starts with only four missed cuts, although he is the only player in this page to have missed out on the Rookie of the Year award, with Rickie Fowler getting the nod instead.Ernie Els, 1994Like Daly three years previously, Els made his major breakthough in his first season as a PGA Tour member when he edged out Loren Roberts and Colin Montgomerie in a play-off at the US Open. Ernie Els 1994: P 11, 1 win, 4 top 10s, 1 MC The smooth-swinging South African made only 11 starts in the US as he balanced his commitments to the European Tour, and he missed only one cut while claiming a runner-up place at the Buick Classic - a week before his US Open win - and two further top-10 finishes.Jordan Spieth, 2013The next next big thing enjoyed a prolific rookie campaign which featured a handsome victory over the vastly-experienced Zach Johnson at the John Deere Classic, two weeks before his 20th birthday. Jordan Spieth 2013: P23, 1 win, 9 top 10s, 5 MCs In 23 starts on the PGA Tour, Spieth failed to make the weekend only five times and posted nine top-10 finishes, claiming the third of his three runner-up spots at the season-ending Tour Championship.His performance in Atlanta lifted him to seventh in the FedExCup standings and earned him a captains pick for the Presidents Cup, where he won two points out of four to help Fred Couples side to victory.Tiger Woods, 1996Hello world was how Woods announced himself to professional golf, although he hardly set the world alight in his debut among the paid ranks, finishing in a lowly tie for 60th at the Greater Milwaukee Open. Tiger Woods 1996: P8, 2 wins, 5 top 10s, 0 MCs Just four tournaments later, Woods collected the first of his 79 PGA Tour titles to the delight of the fans at the Las Vegas Invitational, and win No 2 arrived shortly afterwards in the Disney Classic.Five top 10s in eight starts, with no missed cuts, and Woods was all set to provide the most serious threat to the record 18 major titles of Jack Nicklaus.John Daly, 1991More known for his prodigious hitting than for winning tournaments until he burst onto the golfing world with his sensational victory at the PGA Championship, when he scraped into the field as ninth reserve and blitzed the competition by three shots in Indiana. John Daly 1991: P33, 1 win, 5 top 10s, 12 MCs The Wild Thing was hardly a model of consistency over his 33 starts that year, missing the cut in 12 tournaments, but he did notch four top-10 finishes including a third place at the season-ending Tour Championship.Unfortunately for Daly, his best performances came too late to earn a call-up to the US Ryder Cup team, and he was also overlooked for the 1995 contest despite winning The Open earlier that year.Upgrade to Sky Sports now and get 12 months half price.

Despite Barcelona showing the same vulnerability in defence, Messis best performance since returning from a lengthy injury layoff ensured that his side bounced back from a defeat by Valencia in the previous round. Leonardo Bonucci Youth Jersey .3 seconds remaining, and No. 7 North Carolina held off a resilient No. 25 Virginia team, 54-51, on Saturday. John Henson contributed a double-double with 15 points to go with 11 rebounds for the Tar Heels (25-4, 12-2 ACC), who have won five straight and 10 of 11. http://www.soccerjuventusproshop.com/kids-...uventus-jersey/ . Virtanen opened the scoring at 6:45 of the first period, then gave Canada a two-goal lead with a power-play goal 1:03 into the second. Sweden cut the lead in half when Daniel Muzito Bagenda scored a power-play goal at 10:57 of the second.LOS ANGELES -- A pair of Cy Young Awards, three straight major league ERA titles, a 20-win season -- and now a no-hitter. There isnt much more for Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw to accomplish besides winning a World Series ring. Kershaw dominated the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night, striking out a career-high 15 and allowing his only baserunner on a throwing error by shortstop Hanley Ramirez in Los Angeles 8-0 victory. Kershaws gem gave the Dodgers both no-hitters in the majors this season. Josh Beckett tossed one May 25 in Philadelphia. "I am so amazed," Kershaw said. "Beckett told me he was going to teach me how to do that, so I have Josh to thank." Cheered on by his wife in the stands, Kershaw (7-2) retired his first 18 batters before Corey Dickerson led off the seventh with a slow bouncer to Ramirez. His throw on the run went wide past first baseman Adrian Gonzalez for a two-base error -- ending any chance for a perfect game. But that was it for the Rockies against the 26-year-old Kershaw, who shrugged off the miscue and came oh-so-close to pitching the 22nd perfecto in the majors since 1900. "He had command of everything. I told him between innings: Its not fair when you have a devastating slider and a devastating curveball in the same night," Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis said. "And when he does that, nights like this are really possible." One batter after Dickerson reached base, rookie third baseman Miguel Rojas backhanded Troy Tulowitzkis grounder behind the bag and let fly with a strong throw to first that Gonzalez -- a three-time Gold Glove winner -- scooped out of the dirt to keep the no-hitter intact. And with the crowd of 46,069 on its feet and roaring, Kershaw made quick work of the Rockies in the ninth. DJ LeMahieu grounded out to first base on the first pitch and Charlie Culberson hit a lazy fly to right field on the next one. Dickerson then saw four straight strikes and went down swinging. The only pitcher to have more strikeouts in a no-hitter was Hall of Famer Nolan Ryan, according to STATS. "Ive seen some great pitching performances, but its tough to be any better than Kershaw," Colorado manager Walt Weiss said. After his 107th and final pitch, a beaming Kershaw raised his arms above his head and waited for a huge hug from Ellis. "I started tearing up out there in the ninth inning, just sitting out there catching and watching him throw after he got those first two outs," Ellis said. "It was pretty special." "Its something you never forget," he added. "Its a game Ill watch on replays with my kids forever." Moments later, as he was about to be interviewed on the field, Kershaw was doused by teammates with two large buckets. The left-hander with the big-breaking curve also got a big hug from his wife. Kershaw, who signed a $215 million, seven-year contract in the off-season -- a record for a pitcher -- gave Los Angeles sports fans their second memorable thrill in just a few days. The Kings won the Stanley Cup at home last Friday night, their second NHL championship in three years, and brought the famous trophy to Dodger Stadium on Tuesday for a pregame ceremony. The next night, Kershaw took over. The only other time the Dodgers pitched two no-hitters in one season was 19566, when the team was still in Brooklyn. Luca Marrone Youth Jersey. Carl Erskine and Sal Maglie turned the trick that year. Hall of Famer Sandy Koufax, who tossed four no-hitters, pitched the franchises lone perfect game on Sept. 9, 1965, against the Chicago Cubs. "I guess I havent really thought of the ramifications of throwing one of these things, but its definitely special company," Kershaw said. "Its pretty cool." Ramirez was back in the lineup after leaving Tuesday nights game with a bruised ring finger on his throwing hand, the result of a sharp grounder by Dickerson than deflected into short centre field for a double. Ramirez was replaced on defence by rookie Carlos Triunfel to start the eighth. Kershaw missed more than six weeks early this year because of a strained muscle in his upper back, after beating Arizona in the season opener during the Dodgers two-game trip to Australia. It was the 22nd no-hitter in Dodgers history -- more than any other team -- and the first at home since Ramon Martinezs 2-0 gem against the Marlins on July 14, 1995. "His stuff was phenomenal tonight. I think all the guys said that. We tip our hats to him," Dickerson said. The day after Becketts no-hitter, teammate Hyun-Jin Ryu took a perfect game into the eighth inning against Cincinnati before giving up a leadoff double to Todd Frazier. "As far as individual games go, this is really special. To do it at home is more amazing," Kershaw said before looking up and thanking the crowd. Kershaw received a standing ovation when he came to bat in the eighth, and another one minutes later after finishing the job against one of baseballs top lineups. Playing their home games at hitter-friendly Coors Field, the Rockies began the day leading the majors in batting average, hits, total bases, on-base percentage and slugging percentage. They were first in the NL in runs and homers. "There are some guys in that lineup that give him fits," Ellis acknowledged. "But the way he made those guys look tonight was a testament to how good his stuff was. He was pretty dialed in and pretty locked in -- especially as the game progressed." Rojas also supported Kershaw with his bat, hitting a three-run double while continuing to fill in for injured third baseman Juan Uribe. Gonzalez and Matt Kemp each drove in two runs, helping the Dodgers complete their first three-game sweep at home this season. Jorge De La Rosa (6-6) threw 86 pitches over 3 1-3 innings and was charged with eight runs, six hits and five walks. The left-hander is 0-3 with an 8.19 ERA in his last four starts after going 6-0 with a 1.80 ERA during his previous seven outings. NOTES: Ryan threw a record seven no-hitters. He whiffed 17 batters in one of them, 16 in another and 15 in yet another. Warren Spahn (15) and Don Wilson (15) were the only other pitchers with 15 strikeouts in a no-hitter, STATS said. ... San Francisco LHP Jonathan Sanchez was the previous pitcher to throw a no-hitter with the only baserunner reaching on an error, in July 2009 against San Diego, STATS said. ... The last time the Rockies were held hitless, it was by Dodgers pitcher Hideo Nomo on Sept. 17, 1996. The only other no-hitter against Colorado was pitched by Al Leiter of the Marlins four months earlier.
