Which golfer won the most PGA Tour events in a row in history?

Dustin Johnson is vying to win his fourth consecutive start at the 2017 Wells Fargo Championship, which would put him in incredibly rare company in the history of the PGA Tour.

In the history of the PGA Tour, there have only been six streaks of five or more consecutive PGA Tour wins. The longest still belongs to Byron Nelson, who won an incredible (and unlikely to be ever matched) 11 PGA Tour events in a row from March 11 - Aug. 4, 1945, including the 1945 PGA Championship.

Nelson actually won a 12th event in the stretch, but it wasn't considered an official PGA Tour win because the purse was below the Tour's standards at the time.

Tiger Woods holds the second-longest run of PGA Tour wins in a row. He won seven consecutive starts from July 23, 2006 through Jan. 28, 2007, including wins in the 2006 Open Championship, which started the streak, and the 2006 PGA Championship.
