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 🤔
