For the second year in a row, we have a Masters champion who didn’t seem to have the credentials to win such a prestigious tournament. Last year, it was Zach Johnson, who had won only a single PGA Tour event before his victory at Augusta National. Now, it is Immelman, also a winner of just one title before Sunday, looking as though he was made to wear a green jacket.

Immelman slept on the lead for three nights, something not accomplished by a champion here since Seve Ballesteros in 1980. Immelman, a 28-year-old with a polished swing, who finally realized his potential in the wicked wind of Augusta and a final round that yielded only four rounds under par.

Trevor Immelman

Immelman certainly had a fine résumé. After last year’s Wachovia Championship on the PGA Tour, he had risen to No. 12 in the Official World Golf Ranking. He was coming off a 2006 rookie of the year season, when he won the Western Open. And he had won three European Tour titles.

Immelman is the sixth player since 1997 to win his first major at The Masters, but that list includes Woods, Mark O’Meara, Mike Weir and Phil Mickelson, all of whom built a reputation before winning at Augusta National.

And he joins a long list of surprise major championship winners, especially in recent years.

Johnson had missed the cut in his previous three majors and never had finished better than a tie for 17th. Ben Curtis won the British Open and Shaun Micheel the PGA Championship in 2003. Neither had won a PGA Tour event before those victories. Todd Hamilton, a 38-year-old rookie in 2004, won the British Open in a playoff over Ernie Els, his second victory of the year. Since then, he has missed the cut in nine majors.
