    Why would you be that emotionally invested?

    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?



    Keegan Bradley

    Jason Dufner

    Y.E Yang



    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🌏



    Friggin Jason??



    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🍻

    This question is a lot like asking who is the ugliest victoria secret model. They are stunning but when your are ordinal ranking someone is going to be the worst.



    The bottom is guys with this as their only win or maybe 1 more and very few top 5s elsewhere. I would give Willet a couple more years (he is only 30) before putting him in the Shaun Michael/Beem category but it sure looks like he might end up there.

    YE is one of the most deserving and probably a better Major Winner that most of the late ones since he is the only one to have beaten the real Tiger Woods on Sunday!

    I think what many people forget about or never knew about Y.E. Yang is that was not the first time he beat Tiger in a high profile event. He beat Tiger in the 2006 HSBC Champions in China. He said that win helped him in the 2009 PGA.
