 All time record.  Time for lefty to forget about this event.  Like
Snead he simply has a jinx at this event and will never win it.  Esp
now that he's pushing 40.

While it shows that one is definitely a golfing blue *** to be in
that class, it also shows if they were really great they would have
closed the deal more.  I would think Tiger has less of those 2nds
because he had more successes in getting the firsts.  OTOH, it seemed
like 20 people could have grabbed the title here with nobody
especially taking charge.  That could widen the future field for
people coming in second or first for the future.

So Sam Snead wasn't great?

Arnie and Tom Watson never won the PGA.
Trevino and Bobby Jones never won The Masters.
Sam Snead and Phil Mickelson never won the US Open (yet).
I've never won RSG-NW.
So what?

I think it's a pretty good testament to Phil's game that a spray-
hitting bomber can come so close to winning the US Open so many times.

For your information, the other not-quite-greats with four runner-up
finishes at the US Open were Jack, Arnie, Sam Snead, and Bobby Jones.

Depends if you're Phil Mickelson or Michael Jackson.

The Masters didn't exist during Jones' playing days. In fact he
started the event 4 years after he retired from serious competition so
his lack of a victory there means nothing.  He never won the PGA
either since he was an amateur.

Jones never won The Masters, and wasn't mentioned re the PGA, so
Annika is correct.

SADDAM owns nothing  but the title " Lamebrain of All Newsgroups".

You're second.

Well, he played in 12 of them and was 0-12 so my statement was
correct.
