The Major Championships

Becoming a Major Champion is the goal of every professional golfer but, with only four opportunities a year, it is an ambitious target.

Many famous - and less famous - names have one major on their record, but far fewer are the players who have more than one major title to their credit. This page lists all of them, the true elite of world golf.

All Major Champions

Discover the full Roll of Honour since the first Major in 1860.
