Brooks Koepka, Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm: Who will win essentially the most majors?

Since 2010, 9 gamers have gained a number of main championships.

No person has gained greater than Brooks Koepka and Rory McIlroy, who’ve gained 5 and 4, respectively.

Koepka most not too long ago gained the 2023 PGA Championship at Oak Hill.

McIlroy, in the meantime, has not gained a significant since 2014 when he gained each the PGA and the Claret Jug in a four-week span.

Subsequent in line is Jordan Spieth, who burst onto the scene in 2015 with victories at Augusta Nationwide and Chambers Bay, which held the U.S. Open that yr for the primary time. Spieth then gained the 2017 Open Championship at Royal Birkdale.

Behind Spieth are six gamers who’ve gained two majors since 2010.

Jon Rahm did so most not too long ago, successful the 2021 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines and the 2023 Masters. He has the sport to win lots extra majors within the coming years. Perhaps he’ll win the Claret Jug subsequent summer season at Royal Troon, the place he made his Open Championship debut in 2016. Or maybe he’ll grow to be the primary repeat winner of the Masters since Tiger Woods did so in 2001 and 2002.

Collin Morikawa has additionally gained two majors since 2020. He gained the PGA Championship at TPC Harding Park in 2020 and the Open Championship at Royal St. George’s the next yr.

Justin Thomas, Dustin Johnson, Bubba Watson, and Martin Kaymer are the opposite 4 gamers who’ve gained a number of majors since 2010. Of those 4, nonetheless, solely Thomas and Johnson have gained a significant within the 2020s.

Even so, my guess is that Brooks Koepka will win essentially the most main titles of those that have had essentially the most success within the post-Tiger period.

He already has 5, however he wants The Open and a Inexperienced Jacket to finish the profession grand slam. I don’t suppose Koepka will get to double digits, however I do imagine, on the very least, he ties the nice Arnold Palmer with seven majors. Sam Snead, Bobby Jones, and Gene Sarazen additionally gained seven, which might be fairly good firm for Koepka.

What number of majors do you suppose Koepka wins? Or do you suppose another person will win extra? Tell us within the feedback beneath:
