Who is on Golf's Mount Rushmore?

Nicklaus, Woods, Player, Hogan - all have a career slam.  Not in order but Woods and Nicklaus have TRIPLE slams to put that in perspective.

I could certainly argue Arnie or Bobby Jones instead of Player or Hogan.

It feels a bit weird not having Ben Hogan on there, but I’m going with Jack, Tiger, Arnie and Bobby Jones. 

I would have preferred we just left it as the Six Grandfathers though 🤔

Wikipedia can't be wrong

there should be several tiers to this Rushmore Hall of Fame...

but at the peak:  Arnie, Jack, Tiger & Ben

because you're asking who's synonymous with golf; 

like who do you think of when golf is mentioned...

not who has the most majors or wins...(those are different evaluations)

Bobby, Arnie, Jack and Tiger.

Impact on the game carries a lot of weight for me, hence the reason Palmer is on mine despite several players winning more majors.
