Lee Westwood is the King (or is that Queen?) of Bridesmaids in Majors

Here's a neat piece of trivia that I bet you didn't know. Since all four professional majors have been in existence (that's since 1934, when The Masters was first played), which golfer has finished in the Top 3 in those majors most often without winning?

Yep: Lee Westwood. Westwood has eight total Top 3 finishes in majors, but has yet to win one. He finished second twice and third-place six more times.

Going into the 2014 U.S. Open, Westwood had started 64 majors without a win. That's the record among active players for most major starts without a victory. Here is the Top 4 in that category:

  • Lee Westwood - 64 major starts without winning
  • Miguel Angel Jimenez - 63
  • Sergio Garcia - 62
  • Steve Stricker - 61
