Francis Ouimet: Ouimet is not one of the greatest golfers of all time, but when he won the U.S. Open in 1913 at the age of 20, he put golf on the map as a mainstream sport. We can thank him for all of the great American players whom we have seen over the years.
Byron Nelson: Nelson is sixth all time on the PGA Tour in wins with 52, which included five in Major championships. In 1945 he won 11 straight tournaments with a total of 18 on the year.
Gary Player: The South African won nine Majors in his lifetime, among 165 total tournament wins across various tours. He only had 25 PGA tour wins, but what he accomplished was incredible.
Sam Snead: Slammin' Sammy won seven Majors and he holds the record for most PGA Tour wins with 82. He was never able to win a U.S. Open, but he will always be one of the all-time greats.
Ben Hogan: Hogan is fourth all time with 64 career PGA Tour wins, which included nine Major victories. The legendary ball striker would be No. 6 on this list, but alas, this list only goes to five.
