Looking at All the Playoffs in Major Championships

By March 7, 2013

Follow me on:

Ben Hogan, Arnold Palmer and Tom Watson won a combined 24 majors. But did you know they lost another nine majors in playoffs? That trio of golf greats had a surprisingly poor 3-9 combined record in playoffs at majors.

Our Major Championship Playoffs section includes records relating to playoffs at majors, plus the winners, losers and scores of every playoff in major championship history.

Do you know which two golfers have lost playoffs at each of the four professional majors? Did you know that a golfer once refused to show up for the playoff at a British Open? Which golfers have the best playoff records in majors?

Check out all the playoffs at majors.
