Australian Major Winners

From Jim Ferrier, our first major champion, to Cameron Smith, our most recent, Australian golf has a long and proud history of punching above our weight in the game's majors.

Sixteen Australian golfers have claimed 30 major championships between them.

The current women's five major championships are:

  • ANA Inspiration (formerly Kraft Nabisco Championship)

  • US Women's Open

  • KPMG Women's PGA Championship (formerly LPGA Championship)

  • Evian Championship

  • AIG Women's British Open.

Karrie Webb sits 7th on the all-time women's list with seven.

While she is one of six female golfers to have claimed the Career Grand Slam, Karrie is recognised by the LPGA as the only player in history to have achieved the Super Career Grand Slam, for winning five events considered majors.
