Who Has Won The Masters The Most?

Jack Nicklaus – 6 time winner:
The fabled ‘GOAT’ conversation across various sports is often one of the greatest debates
labeled by many fans, with golf’s all-time greatest award still being hotly contested between
two legends of the golfing scene.

Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods are the two most successful golfers to ever live, which is
merited in the pristine number of accolades that either golfer has won.

However, when it comes to Masters title winnings, Nicklaus has a slight edge over his US
counterpart as he holds the record for the most in the tournament’s prosperous history with
six total championships.

Nicklaus won three titles between 1963 and 1966 before claiming even more silverware in
1972 and 1975 respectively.

His sixth and final title came in 1986 at the age of 46 which was also his 18th major title in
professional golf leaving many to label the Ohio native as the greatest golfer to ever live
thanks to these many impeccable accolades.

Nicklaus would continue to compete at various other top-level golfing events, including his
famous tied-sixth-placed finish during the 1998 event over a decade later after his sixth title
showing at the age of 58 before inevitably retiring a few years later at the youthful age of 65.

Tiger Woods – 5-time winner:
At 47 years of age, Tiger Woods is gearing up to compete in another Masters tournament
where he will be hoping to tie Nicklaus’ record of six championship titles, although the latest
Masters odds on the DraftKings sportsbook do not suggest that Tiger will be a major
contender as he is ranked at +6000 to win the entire event.

Despite his prior struggles on and off the green, Woods has established himself as one of
the greatest to ever compete at the top level of golf as he has won the Masters on five
separate occasions (1997, 2001, 2002, 2005 and 2019).

Woods has become an icon across the sporting world as he looks to once again continue his
legacy with another tremendous showing at the upcoming 2023 Masters tournament.

Arnold Palmer – 4 time winner:

Next to Nicklaus’ six titles and Tiger’s five stands the late great Arnold Palmer who is
forever immortalized with the legendary ‘King’ nickname, which is certainly fitting given his
years of dominance over the golfing scene during his tenure as a professional.

Palmer won the Masters four times in 1958, 1960, 1962 and 1964 which included several
incredible matchups against the likes of the aforementioned Jack Nicklaus, who was
certainly keen in announcing himself as the next top name in the sport.

Alongside his success at the Masters, Palmer is also a multiple-time winner of the Open
Championship and prior title winner of the US Open in 1960, with the ‘King’ winning a combined
total of seven Major titles, earning him a rightful spot in the World Golf Hall of Fame.

Outside of the previously mentioned names with four or more Masters championships, there
are five names tied for three total titles which include Jimmy Demaret, Sam Snead, Gary
Player, Nick Faldo and Phil Mickelson.
