Birdies, eagles, and a hole in one; these are the golfers that made these shots look easy, as they left viewers in awe when they did the seemingly impossible. 

The sport of golf has a long history that dates back to Scotland in the 1400s, but the Open Championship, which was the first major championship played in golf, wasn't played until 1860. Since then, three other majors have been added as the game has become a global phenomenon, both professionally and for amateurs. Of course, nothing has been more impressive about the game of golf than its players. 

As the prominence of golf rose over the course of the late-19th century and early-20th century, the stars of the sport rose to fame as well. Golfers became icons and legends, and today, many of them are known around the world. They inspire through their competitiveness and achievements, which go beyond our and maybe even their wildest imaginations. 

How much do you know about the greatest players in golf, though? Do you know who won the earliest majors or those innovators who revolutionized the game? If you're a golf historian or even just a fan, this quiz is for you. Take it and show everyone how much you know about the greatest golfers of all time!
