It's not on your list but for me I'd love to win Olympic Gold in Golf to put Canada on the world golfing map.

US open for me, it just seems like the greatest mental endurance test in the game of golf

I would love to be a major champion, but I think it'd be tough to beat being a Ryder Cup Champion.

For me it would the The Open Championship simply because its played on the toughest courses in the nastiest weather in the birthplace of golf. To win The Open Championship at St Andrews in rain and 30 mph wind would be very special and would mean more to me than any of the other majors or the Ryder/Presidents Cup.

This, howling wind and rain, links golf, yes.

The Masters hands down. Life time membership, green jacket and the most beautiful piece of property I've set foot on

The U.S open. To me its still the premier event. Open to anyone, and has always been my favorite.

US Open would be my must win. National stage and you know they set those courses up to be TOUGH. Talk about having your game in tip top shape.

Being from GA, it would be treason for me not to say The Masters. The absolute most beautiful course I've ever seen in person. The tradition, the jacket. Walking around that place you just know how special it is.

Man I can't wait for April.

The Master's by far..... Any of them would be great but all of the things that come with a Masters victory will last a lifetime

Ryder Cup. Without a doubt. Representing Europe, a true team event and having o say you're a Ryder Cup champion...I think the Open and the Masters come as close second for me...

Only one, it would have to be the US Open. I could live without winning Augusta as long as I got to play Augusta!

The Masters, Ryder Cup is a close 2nd.

The history and prestige of both of those is amazing, and I love the idea of the team concept for the Ryder cup, but the lifetime membership at Augusta wins out.

The Masters because you have a lifetime exemption & that is a course not many can play.....close 2nd is US Open.
