Bobby Jones, who won the pre-Masters era Career Grand Slam once, and is the only golfer all -time to have won four majors in the same calendar year .
However, when it comes to golf events there are 4 tournaments that stand out the most. These 4 important golf tournaments are called “The Majors ”. They are The Masters, The Open, U.S. Open, and the PGA Championship .
The Open is the biggest and best major full stop. Toughest test of golf. The Masters is just an invitational with mickey mouse greens in the good old US of A. If it wants to be a proper major it needs to open it’s doors more.
The competitions are the Masters Tournament , the U.S. Open , The Open Championship and the PGA Championship , contested annually. Should the same golfer win all four majors in a calendar year, this would be recognized as a grand slam.

In terms of the current four majors , the first to win all four in a single year was Don Budge, who completed the feat in 1938. To date, 17 players have completed a Grand Slam , though only six in the most prestigious singles titles. Only Stefan Edberg has completed the Grand Slam in a Junior discipline.
For Jordan Spieth, who, at 24, has the first three legs of the career Grand Slam, the PGA Championship is the hardest golf major for him to win.
