It's an accomplishment to play in all four of the men's golf major championships in a single golf season. It's hard to get into the Masters, US Open, British Open Championship and PGA Championship in a calendar year. It's an even bigger deal to do so year after year after year, joining the rare company of players who have made at least 100 major championship starts.
So, what Jack Nicklaus accomplished in playing in the most golf major championships is incredible. What's even more amazing is that he made the most cuts in major championships -- in fact, making more cuts in major championships than the total number of majors played for practically every other player in golf history.
Jack Nicklaus played in the most major championships, teeing it up 164 times. He made the cut in 131 of those major championships, which alone would put him at fifth all-time in the most majors played -- more than the 127 Raymond Floyd played.
Gary Player, who played in the second-most majors, made 102 major cuts. Tom Watson, who has played in the third-most major championships, made 100 cuts in majors. Raymond Floyd made 96 cuts in major championships despite playing in just 127 majors. Arnold Palmer made 90 major championship cuts in 142 starts.
Tiger Woods, for the record, hasn't even played in 100 majors yet (and he may never). He has made 67 cuts in 76 major championship starts through 2017.
