1. Jack Nicklaus
With 73 PGA Tour Victories, Jack Nicklaus is ranked 1st place in our Top 5 Greatest Golfers of all time. Though Tiger Woods ended up winning more total events on the PGA Tour than Jack Nicklaus, the Golden Bear was in a class of his own at majors. No other golfer had more than 46 top-10 finishes, but did you know that Nicklaus was a top-10 finisher 73 times and finished in the top five 56 times?

2. Tiger Woods
Did you know that Woods became the first golfer to win five PGA Tour events? A legend on the golf course, Tiger Woods is one of the winningest professional athletes of all-time.

Furthermore, he remains tied with Sam Snead in PGA Tour victories (82). 

3. Ben Hogan
From 1946 to 1953, Ben Hogan dominated the PGA Tour. Hogan won a career-best 13 tournaments in 1946 alone, including the first of his nine majors, a total of 30 tournaments from 1946 to 1948, and was named the PGA Player of the Year in 1948, taking both the U.S. Open and PGA Championship that year.
