WSOP vs. PGA

  • One player won three times.


  • Three players won twice.


  • Three players won back-to-back titles.


  • Fourteen of the 21 champions finished top ten in other Main Events.




PGA Championship



  • 22 players won the title


  • Three players won twice.


  • One player won back-to-back titles.


  • Fifteen of the 22 champions finished top ten in other PGA Championships.
