15 Golfers On Big Win Droughts

Jordan Spieth

Career high world ranking: 1st
PGA Tour wins: 11
Last victory: Open Championship – July 2017

Jordan Spieth won the 2017 Open at Royal Birkdale

The Texan was looking set to be the dominant player of his era, winning three Majors, reaching the World No.1 position and achieving many more accolades.

Spieth was a fantastic iron player, a brilliant competitor and the best putter in the world, but it just hasn’t happened for him over the past three years.

He got the ‘yips’, struggled with his mental game, his long game…basically everything.

Martin Kaymer

Career high world ranking: 1st
PGA Tour wins: 3
European Tour wins: 11
Last victory: US Open – June 2014

It was almost eight years ago now when Martin Kaymer sunk the putt at Medinah to win the Ryder Cup.

Two years later he won both The Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass and his second Major at the US Open at Pinehurst, by a mammoth eight strokes.

That victory, over six years ago, was the last time he won on either the PGA or European Tour.

Nick Watney

Career high world ranking: 9th
PGA Tour wins: 5
Last victory: CIMB Classic – October 2012

It is now approaching eight years since Nick Watney last won on Tour. He saw off Dustin Johnson to win the WGC-Cadillac Championship in 2011 before winning the first FedEx Cup playoff event, The Barclays, in 2012.

Once a top-10 golfer in the Official World Golf Ranking, Watney has struggled to re-find that form in recent years.

Hunter Mahan

PGA Tour wins: 6
Last victory: The Barclays – August 2014

Another American that has fallen from grace is Hunter Mahan.

He has had eight top-10s in Majors, been on three US Ryder Cup sides and won two WGCs.

His last win was in 2014, can he return to his former heights?

Jim Furyk

Career high world ranking: 2nd
PGA Tour wins: 17
Last victory: RBC Heritage – April 2015

Furyk is one of the best players of his generation, with 17 PGA Tour titles to his name including the 2003 US Open.

Peter Hanson

European Tour wins: 6
Last victory: BMW Masters – October 2012

PGA Tour wins: 12
Last victory: The 144th Open Championship – July 2015

Stewart Cink

Stewart Cink broke Tom Watson’s heart at Turnberry in 2009 when he defeated the 59-year-old in a playoff.

It’s hard to believe that was 11 years ago, surely this Major champion has another win in him.

Jimmy Walker

Career high world ranking: 10th
PGA Tour wins: 6
Last victory: USPGA Championship – August 2016

Jimmy Walker achieved his potential in August 2016, winning his first Major at the USPGA Championship.

However, since that win, the American has struggled with Lyme Disease and he has been unable to reach his former heights since.

Luke Donald

PGA Tour wins: 5
