    Where's this list coming from?

    It's got some pretty obvious mistakes: Faldo + Rose + Willet > 6, Rory + Gmac + Clarke > 5, Seve + Jose Maria + Sergio > 6

    Bingo. Be neat to see an accurate total, broken down by unique title winners.

    Rose was born in SA. but has English citizenship. So it depends on your criteria for the list.

    He is born of English parents and represents Europe in the Ryder Cup and won an Olympic Gold medal for GB&I. It's utterly ridiculous to say that he is South African.

    Not if you are compiling a list by country of birth. Kinda like Feherty. Born in Ireland but now a US citizen. I'll put all of Feherty's majors in both Ireland and the USA.

    Jones won his 7 major open championships up to 1930, so his total may not be in the Georgia column, or the last two might be.



    If you add Jones' 7 to Georgia's 8, you end up with a total more than Australia.

    I don't believe he said he was South African - he said he was born in SA.

    I'll post a corrected list later today.

    Yes, 2 for SC. I didn't post the entire list. Will do so later today.
  • Roadking2003Roadking2003 AustinMembers Posts: 5,287 ✭✭
    This exercise started as a list I kept for myself. It's much more difficult picking a starting year since that puts some players with wins before and after the "start year".



    I'll post again after cleaning up the list if it looks useful.

    I cleaned up the data and started over. This time I started with 1934 because that's the year of the first Masters.
    It's interesting that Australia and South Africa are the only two outside of the USA that has a "Country Slam".
    Another interesting stat is the number of countries represented. The Masters has almost as many as the British.

  • Roadking2003Roadking2003 AustinMembers Posts: 5,287 ✭✭

    Six states have a "State Slam".

    Out of curiousity, are you attributing the 8 majors for Kansas to be Tom Watson’s? If so, those need to be changed to MO. He’s from that side of the city.

    No it doesn't depend on "your criteria", he's British, he plays for Europe in team events.
    This whole thread is bogus man.

    Thanks for the list, RK. Cool stuff.
    Without thinking about it beforehand, I would’ve thought FL would have more than it does, but I guess it makes sense. They all just live there now.

    Edit: Beem being the sole Arizonan is also wild in my mind.

    Good catch. That changes the results big time. Here is the corrected chart.

    alabama sneaking in there with 6, tied with florida and ahead of 20 other states with bigger populations ... we seem to show up a bit on athletic lists, punching above our weight ...
