THE BIG THREE: MAJOR CHAMPIONS AND GLOBAL AMBASSADORS FOR GOLF

THE MAJORS

The Big Three dominated professional golf, rising to the occasion at golf’s 4 Major Championships time and again. Two of the members completed golf’s Grand Slam, Palmer short only 1 Major, the PGA Championship, in which he finished second 3 times. The Big Three’s collective Majors record is just one way of marking the three’s legendary status.

457 Major Appearances, 34 Major Wins, 150 Top Ten Major Finishes

The Masters: 13 Titles, 8 Second Place Finishes, 48 Top Ten Finishes, 146 Appearances

7 Claret Jugs, 6 U.S. Open Titles, 7 PGA Championship Wins

22 Senior Major Championships

GLOBAL AMBASSADORS

The Big Three were not just successful Major champions, but also global ambassadors for the game of golf. They traveled extensively to grow the game around the world in their regular Tour careers and continued to be ambassadors on the Senior Tour and beyond.

Both Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player have been captain of the U.S. and International Presidents Cup teams, respectively. The two faced off in 2003, 2005, and 2007.

All three legends served as the Honorary Starters at the Masters since 2012, ceremonially kicking off the first Major tournament of the year each year until Palmer’s death.

PHILANTHROPY AND GIVING BACK

Individually and together, The Big Three have given back to the game and the world by cohosting charity tournaments together like The Big Three Invitational, and participating in one another’s charity events, auctioning memorabilia, and more.
