(AP) -- Ever since Greg Norman's final-round implosion allowed Nick Faldo win the Masters in 1996, a generation of fine English talent has come up short in golf's four major championships.
With his seven top-3 finishes, Lee Westwood's near misses are a thing of golfing folklore. Luke Donald has been ranked No. 1 but never come that close down the stretch in a major. Ian Poulter saves his best for the Ryder Cup, while Paul Casey's star has fallen since his breakthrough year in 2009.
Finally, after a 17-year wait, England has a major winner in U.S. Open champion Justin Rose.
