Byron Nelson

    Majors won:5 (1937 & 1942 Masters; 1939 U.S. Open; 1940 & 1945 PGA Championship)

PGA Tour victories: 52 (sixth all time)

Notes: Nelson's 1945 season is one that will likely never be topped. That year, Lord Byron won a mind-boggling 18 of 35 PGA Tour events, including 11 in a row. Almost as unbelievable, on the 17 occasions in which Nelson didn't win, he finished runner up seven times. Nelson won the only major played that year -- the PGA Championship -- as three of them were not played due to World War II. Also, Nelson's 113 consecutive cuts made is second only to the record of 142 set by Tiger Woods. Most impressive about Nelson's cut streak is that in his day, only top-20 finishers received a check... so that's 113 consecutive top-20 finishes.
