The Best & Worst From The Majors

With 2014's four major championships in the books, we hand out our own awards

August 2014

Rickie Fowler

Most surprising performer: Rickie Fowler

Fowler entered 2014 with one career top-five finish at a major (a T-5 at the 2011 British Open), but he became a fixture on leader boards at golf's four biggest events in 2014. Fowler became the first player outside of Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus to finish in the top five in all four events. Perhaps most surprising? Through the PGA Championship, those were Fowler's only four top-five finishes of the season.
