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.[1] 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 single calendar year, this would be recognized as a grand slam. No one has ever achieved this. Tiger Woods is the only player to have consecutively won all four majors, accomplishing that sequence of victories in the 2000–2001 seasons.

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.[2] Second on the list is Tiger Woods, who has won 15 majors to date; his most recent major victory was at the 2019 Masters.[3] Walter Hagen is third with 11 majors;[4] he and Nicklaus have both won the most PGA Championships with five.[5] Nicklaus also holds the record for the most victories in the Masters, winning the tournament six times.[6] Additionally, Nicklaus shares the record for the most U.S. Open victories with Willie Anderson, Bobby Jones and Ben Hogan, each winning four times.[7] Harry Vardon holds the record for the most Open Championship victories, winning six times during his career.[8] Five men: Nicklaus, Woods, Hogan, Gary Player and Gene Sarazen are the only golfers to have won all four of the majors during their career,[9] thus achieving the career grand slam.

Although the U.S. Amateur and The Amateur Championship were once considered to be majors,[10] they are no longer recognized as such, and victories in these competitions are not included in the list.

To date, 458 majors have been played. A total of 227 different men have won majors and, of these, 84 have won at least two.
