Default Title for 1912029

All-Time Greatest Golfers We assembled a stellar blue-ribbon panel to choose the greatest golfers of all time. Each of our expert judges listed his or her top 20 golfers of all time, in order. Panelists were free to consider on-course achievements only, or to factor in character or other contributions as they saw fit. Players earned 20 points for each first-place vote, 19 for second, and so on, down to one point for a 20th-place vote. The results are sure to start arguments.--> Click on the image to get started.
