Ernie set to play 100th career Major this summer

22 Jun

Ernie made his Major Championship debut as an amateur in the 1989 Open at Royal Troon and this summer will tee it up in his 100th career Major at the PGA Championship at Quail Hollow.

Even more impressive than this significant milestone is the fact that Ernie has a 35 per cent strike rate for top-10 finishes (including four wins) in his 99 Majors to date.
