Rory McIlroy won the US Open at age 22, the second-youngest player to win a major since the Masters began in 1934. Jason Day, the 24-year-old Australian, was a runner-up in two majors this year. Rickie Fowler, 22, won his first pro event in South Korea and is responsible for all those bright orange Puma hats in just about any gallery. Attribute that depth to Tiger Woods.
