Rickie Fowler may not have won a major in 2014, but he did do something unprecedented with his performance in golf's four biggest tournaments this season.

Fowler finished in the top five in all four major championships, becoming the first player in the history of the modern Grand Slam to do so without winning one of them and just the third person to accomplish the feat.

No trophies, but a piece of history for Fowler.
