More about the Golf Career Grand Slam

Five professional golfers have won all four of golf's modern majors during their careers, an achievement known as a Career Grand Slam.

The five players who have done this to date are: Gene Sarazen, Ben Hogan, Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods.

Woods and Nicklaus have both won each of the majors at least three times.

A number of other players won three of the four majors during their careers but couldn't win the fourth to complete their own Career Grand Slam:

  • Sam Snead and Phil Mickelson (through 2019) needed  a U.S. Open win to complete their Slam.
  • For Arnold Palmer, Tom Watson, and Jordan Spieth (through 2019) it was the USPGA Championship missing from their trophy cabinet.
  • Lee Trevino and Rory McIlroy (through 2019) would love a Green Jacket given to winners of The Masters.
  • Byron Nelson and Raymond Floyd both won each of the majors played in the USA but failed to win the Open Championship.
