    1. Young Tom Morris – 1868, 1869, 1870 & 1872. The championship wasn’t held in 1871 due to Morris also taking home the Belt when he won the third time. The Belt was replaced with the Claret Jug which is still the trophy. He won his first title at the age of 17 and is still the youngest Major Champion. Had Lydia won a major last year, she would have taken this crown

    2. Willie Anderson 1903, 1904, 1905.
    Ben Hogan 1948, 1950, 1951. As J Bloggs said, he was unable to play after surviving a head on with a bus in early 1949. Initially he wasn’t expected to live, then he wasn’t expected to walk again let alone ever playing golf again. After the accident he won 3 US Opens, 2 Masters and the only British Open he ever played.

    3. Walter Hagen 1924, 1925, 1926, 1927. These were all played at matchplay. In 1928 he lost in the semi-final

    4. Jack Nicklaus 1965, 1966

    5. Peter Thomson 9, Kel Nagle 7, AJ (Andy) Shaw 7. These 3 also won a similar number of NZPGA titles. Kel Nagle, one of the nicest people to have ever played the game, won more events in Australasia than the next 3 winners combined. He passed away just a few weeks ago. Andy Shaw won all his in the 20’s and 30’s
