2010 in review: 15 major moments

Golf is an emotional sport. Sometimes three or four words can sum up an entire weekend, or it may be necessary to go off at the mic to prove your point.

In looking back at 2010, each tour saw plenty of excitement surrounding its individual majors. From Dustin Johnson’s infamous bunker shot at the PGA Championship to Paula Creamer’s gutsy win at the U.S. Women’s Open, there were plenty of storylines to go around.

Oh, and then there was always the drama of the Ryder Cup. That was worth a couple of photos.

Golfweek takes a look back at the 13 majors, the Ryder Cup, the winners and a standout quote that represents each weekend’s biggest storyline.
