Sam Barnard, Assistant Sports Editor | June 24, 2016

We’re already two golfing Majors down in 2016, with Danny Willett and Dustin Johnson claiming their first-ever titles at The Masters and US Open respectively.

There is still a lot to play for during rest of the year, however, as The Open and USPGA Championships are upcoming, while the Ryder Cup and Summer Olympics are events to look forward to too.

Read on below for Coral’s results of previous Majors and odds for forthcoming tournaments….

The Masters 2016 results

Willett claimed his first ever Major title after capitalising on a dramatic capitulation by defending champion Jordan Spieth at Augusta.

US Open 2016 results

Another golfing star to win his maiden Major, Johnson finally shook off doubts that he’d never win one of the sport’s biggest prizes after toppling the likes of Republic of Ireland’s Shane Lowry, despite a controversial moment.

Henrik Stenson claimed his maiden Major in this year’s Open edition at Royal Troon, and in turn broke a number of records as he edged sole challenger Phil Mickelson in the final round.

The likes of Spieth and Day both flopped, but McIlroy and US Open champion Johnson put in credible efforts to finish tied-fifth and tied-ninth respectively.

USPGA Championship 2016 odds

Day is the defending USPGA champion, after he claimed his first Major here last year, but is behind McIlroy in the betting to retain his crown.

This year’s edition will be held in Springfield, New Jersey, where the winner will claim a cool $1.89m.

The Americans will get home advantage this year at the Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska, Minnesota, and are slight favourites to finally regain the famous team trophy.
