With Sergio Garcia taking his name off the list following his Masters victory, following are the five best players in the world currently without majors…

Hideki Matsuyama


In Matsuyama’s defence, he is only 25 years old. But the world No4 has five top-10s in 19 major starts and considered by many as a favourite to become the first-ever Japanese major champion soon.

Rickie Fowler

Fowler’s now up to No9 in the world rankings and the only thing missing from his CV is a major win to elevate his status further in the game. The 28-year-old American now has six top-10s in 29 major starts.

Paul Casey

Another good finish by the resurgent Englishman, but everyone associated with the sport would agree he should have won a major by now. The 39-year-old now has nine top-10s in 42 majors.

Matt Kuchar

The American aced the 16th on Sunday for a tied fourth place, but he is yet to ace a major in what has been a distinguished career. The world No17 has now played 45 majors and recorded eight top-10s.

Lee Westwood

Really, the best player in the world right now without a major. The 43-year-old former world No1 has now gone 76 major starts without success, even though he has a staggering 18 top-10s in them.
