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.
Here's the full list of players to finish in the top five in all four majors in a single year.
- Rickie Fowler - 2014 - T5, T2, T2, 3rd
- Tiger Woods - 2005 - WIN, 2nd, WIN, T-4
- Tiger Woods - 2000 - 5th, WIN, WIN, WIN
- Jack Nicklaus - 1973 - T3, T4, 4th, WIN
- Jack Nicklaus - 1971 - T2, 2nd, T5, WIN
Fowler also won the mythical Grand Slam Challenge, a made-up tournament combining the scores from all 16 major championship rounds among the few players who make the weekend in the Masters, U.S. Open, Open Championship and PGA Championship.
No trophies, but a piece of history for Fowler.
