Ogilvy could double up at US PGA

US PGA golf
Geoff Ogilvy - major contender with form on his side.

Other than Tiger Woods, only two golfers have won more than one Major title since the start of 2005 – Phil Mickelson and Padraig Harrington.

Mickelson posted victories in the 2005 PGA Championship and 2006 Masters, while Harrington has won successive Opens at Carnoustie and Birkdale.

Ernie Els, once considered a Major threat to Jack Nicklaus’s Major tally of 18, has won just a single Major in the past 10 years.

Could Australian Geoff Ogilvy be about to double his tally of wins and his efficiency in finishing high up in his 14 major starts and a particularly good record in the season's last major?

Check out the recent Major history of all the top stars in the table below, which provides a summary breakdown of performances since the start of 2005:
