These were the only men to make the cut in all four majors in 2021

Jon Rahm

The 2021 men’s major championship season is in the books – and, for a handful of players, it proved to be a highly successful (not to mention lucrative) one.

Only 14 players from seven different countries made the cut in each of the four men’s majors staged in 2021 – The Masters, US PGA, US Open and The Open.

They are: Bryson DeChambeau, Harris English, Collin Morikawa, Scottie Scheffler and Jordan Spieth (USA); Paul Casey, Matt Fitzpatrick and Ian Poulter (England); Christiaan Bezuidenhout and Louis Oosthuizen (South Africa); Joaquin Niemann (Chile); Shane Lowry (Ireland); Jon Rahm (Spain); and, of course, Robert MacIntyre (Scotland).

Of those, Rahm had the best of the action, winning his maiden major at the US Open in June. He also finished tied for third at The Open, in a tie for fifth at the US PGA, and in a share of eighth at the Masters. The 26-year-old finished a combined 24-under-par for the four events, raking in a combined $3,632,500 – a whopping $3,255 per shot.

The money he made from those four events would be enough to place Rahm inside the top-400 on the PGA Tour career money list, ahead of the likes of Lee Trevino, Frank Nobilo, Johnny Miller and Ian Baker-Finch.

Oosthuizen was Rahm’s closest rival in terms of earnings, taking home $3,168,425 despite not adding to his 2010 Open Championship victory. English, Morikawa and Spieth were the other players to earn more than one million dollars across the four events.

Of the 14 players who played all 16 major rounds this year, nine are in their twenties. At 22, Niemann – who had a best finish of tied-30th at the US PGA – is the youngest. Europe’s Ryder Cup talisman Poulter is the oldest of the bunch at 45. The only other player in their 40s is Poulter’s fellow Englishman, Casey (43).
