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)
AIG Women's British Open.
