IT took Jack Nicklaus more than 450 PGA Tour events to clock up his 73 victories, starting with the US Open in 1962 and ending with the 1986 Masters.
When Tiger Woods made the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines his 75th win as a member of the circuit on Monday it came in only his 280th start.
Woods is in a league of his own when it comes to strike-rate. World number one Rory McIlroy, for instance, has six titles to his name in America already, but they have still taken the 23-year-old 54 tournaments - one for every nine times he has played, in other words.
