Most wins Majors Amateur Pro combined. It was for a long time common to include wins in the U.S. Amateur and British Amateur championships when ranking golfers by their wins in majors. This was standard at least through the early 1960s; becoming less common until fading out probably during the 1980s. Today it is very rare to do so, but occasionally a golf writer or historian will still quote a combined number.
So, here are the top golfers when professional and amateur major wins are combined
