Was talking with my golf groups after the US Open, and we got to talking on this subject.
Worst Player to Win a Major?
Apologies if this has been discussed already, but I thought there might be some good answers.
My top votes?
Not so much to blast those players, but there are definitely players that deserve a major over these guys.
Give me your best.
I just noticed this and while you have nothing to apologize for regarding this being covered before as I’m sure that it has been, though so has everything else on this board outside of the weekly Tourney threads, lol
Originality this far down the road is not a happening thing, haha
That being said, Keegan??
He’s a two-time Ryder Cupper along with being a perennial Top-100 in the world-
That’s on the face of the earth🌏
Along with his PGA Championship Victory, he’s got four other Tour wins along with Top-20’s in the other three Majors and also a Ryder Cup under his belt.
You think that that’s easy or not a huge accomplishment???
If Patrick Burke drops in, ask him what kind of Player he thinks Keegan, Jason & YE are and if he thinks that they’re the “worst” to win a Major, hahaha.
Oh, and Y.E.??
Along with being the first Asian to win a Men’s Major, he too had three top-20’s in the other three Majors and in his run to the Q-Finals of the WGC-Accenture MP Championship, he took out Quiros, Cink & Graeme McDowell, three fairly solid Players by anone’s bar, lmao
I understand that the thread is done for shats & giggles and to call any one of the Top-125 to 200 Players on the face of the earth the “worst,” even in comparison to each other, is just wacky, and something that someone with absolutely zero concept of just how good these guys really are, and I’ll even go back to the Top-1000, where my Tour Bud had fallen to #728 before catching fire the following year and taking full advantage of a few SE’s to snag a few Top-10’s to get in the next week when ironically he took runner-up to one of the Boys that you’ve mentioned here and by the time that the season ended, he racked up $1.8M in earnings and finished either 67-68th in the Fed-Ex race, bowing out in the semi-final Tourney and he ended the year at #78 in the world.
My point is that these three Gents are far from the “worst” to ever raise a Major’s Trophy.
Now you wanna throw Danny Willett’s name out there, ok, I’ll STFU and listen while you make your case, lmao😂😂😂
Stay well Gents🍻
