There have been 38 major championships contested since the 2008 U.S. Open, the last time Tiger Woods put a major trophy on the shelf.

If a first-time major winner is crowned at the Masters this year, he’ll become the 30th golfer to win a major since Tiger’s epic victory at Torrey Pines.

Of the 38 majors, 15 have been captured by six players, with Rory McIlroy (4) and Jordan Spieth (3) leading the way. Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson, Martin Kaymer and Padraig Harrington each have two in this span.

That leaves 23 with one major in that stretch: Angel Cabrera, Lucas Glover, Stewart Cink, Y.E. Yang, Graeme McDowell, Louis Oosthuizen, Charl Schwartzel, Darren Clarke, Keegan Bradley, Ernie Els, Webb Simpson, Adam Scott, Justin Rose, Jason Dufner, Zach Johnson, Jason Day, Danny Willett, Dustin Johnson, Henrik Stenson, Jimmy Walker, Sergio Garcia, Brooks Koepka, Justin Thomas.

Prior to this dry spell, the longest Woods went without a major title was 10 editions (twice: 1997-199, 2002-2005).
