The 2016 season produced four first-time major champs in Danny Willett, Dustin Johnson, Henrik Stenson and Jimmy Walker. As we approach the 2017 Masters, we put our new formula* to work to determine who are the best current players who haven’t hoisted a trophy at one of golf’s four biggest events. We only used results from the past two years, so heartbreak veterans like Sergio Garcia and Lee Westwood took a hit. Not that they should mind. If you’re on this list for too long, the last thing you want is to be reminded about it.
*FORMULA: PGA Tour/European Tour wins since start of 2015 (WGC, Players, and FedEx Cup Playoff events weighted more) + Average Official World Golf Ranking Points + Top 10s in majors the past two years (top 5s weighted more).
