Masters champion Trevor Immelman is the 14th first-time winner of a major since 2000. During that span only three players have won two or more: Tiger Woods (seven), Phil Mickelson (three) and Retief Goosen (two). Who will be the next multiple major winner? Here are the candidates and their odds of success.
