  • List of men's major championships winning golfers


    The men's major golf championships, also known simply as the majors, are the four most prestigious events in professional golf. The competitions are the Masters Tournament, the U.S. Open, The Open Championship and the PGA Championship, contested annually. Should the same golfer win all four majors in a calendar year, this would be recognized as a grand slam. No one has ever achieved this, although Tiger Woods has held all four major titles at once, having won the US Open, the British Open and the PGA Championship in 2000 and the Masters in 2001; a feat dubbed the Tiger slam. Jack Nicklaus has won 18 men's major golf championships, more than any other man. Jack Nicklaus has won the most majors, achieving 18 victories during his career. Second on the list is Tiger Woods, who has won 14 majors to date; his most recent major victory was at the 2008 U.S. Open. Walter Hagen is third with 11 majors; he and Nicklaus have both won the most PGA Championships with five. Nicklaus also holds the record for the most victories in the Masters, winning the tournament six times. Additionally, Nicklaus shares the record for the most U.S. Open victories with Willie Anderson, Bobby Jones and Ben Hogan, each winning four times. Harry Vardon holds the record for the most Open Championship victories, winning six times during his career. Nicklaus, Woods, Hogan, Gary Player and Gene Sarazen are the only golfers to have won all four of the majors during their career, thus achieving the so-called career slam. Although the U.S. Amateur and The Amateur Championship were once considered to be majors, they are no longer recognized as such, and victories in these competitions are not included in the list. To date, a total of 221 different men have won majors. Of these, 82 have won at least two.

  • The Players Championship


    The Players Championship (commonly known as simply The Players, stylized by the PGA Tour as The PLAYERS Championship) is an annual golf tournament on the PGA Tour. Originally known as the Tournament Players Championship, it began in 1974. For many years, the Players Championship offered the highest prize fund of any tournament in golf ($10.5 million in 2016) until it was overtaken in 2017 by the U.S. Open, which offered a $12 million purse. The field usually includes the top 50 players in the world rankings, but unlike the three major championships or two World Golf Championships events staged in the United States, it is not an official event on the European Tour. The Players has often been considered the unofficial "fifth major" due to its prestige, its host course in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida (the TPC at Sawgrass Stadium Course at which the tournament has been played since 1982, home of the iconic par-3 No. 17 "Island Green"), and its large purse.
