Major Wins After Turning Pro

Here are the top 9 major championship winning players. Bobby Jones, the most accomplished amateur player of all time, would be number 10 if he had turned professional.

One interesting note here is Ben Hogan and his first 15 years without a single major win, followed by 9 majors over the next 8 years. Also, Tiger's 6 year major drought is not unheard of with Gene Sarazin having an 8 year drought followed by 4 more major wins.

You have to look all the way down to 14th place in the all-time major winners list to find the next currently active player (Phil Mickelson), with only 5.
