Don’t look now, but the young guns are taking over on the PGA Tour.

Counting Jordan Spieth’s thrilling win at the Valspar Championship, 19 tournaments on the PGA Tour schedule are now in the books. Of those 19, nine of the winners have come from golfers under the age of 30 years old. Surprised? Don’t be. Players 35 and younger have won more than three-quarters of all the majors since 1960.
