Which golfer has the most career senior major championship wins?

In professional golf, the measure of a player's greatness is most commonly linked with how many majors they win in their career. For female professional golfers specifically, there are five majors the best senior players in the world seek to win as many times as possible to cement their place in golf lore: the Tradition, the Senior Players Championship, the US Senior Open, the Senior British Open Championship and the Senior PGA Championship.

Conceivably, being the golfer with the most career major championship titles makes that golfer the best 50-plus golfer ever. The golfer with the most career PGA Tour Champions major championship titles is Bernhard Langer, winning 10 in his career.

Jack Nicklaus is second on the list with nine, though Gary Player claims to have won nine since three of his Senior British Open titles don't count since they weren't a major when he won them.

Hale Irwin is third (or fourth) on the list with seven senior major wins.
