Only One Person To Blame for Old Man Watson’s Defeat

26 Best Golfers to Win Only One Major Since World War II

I am going with the same criteria as I did for the 25 worst golfers to win a major championship, with one change: I am making it a top-26.

While everyone else arguably underachieved winning only one major, Elkington overachieved. But unlike every other overachiever in golf, Elkington time and time again stepped his game up in prestigious events. That deserves a mention, and thus he makes this list.
