British Masters

 

The British Masters was one of the biggest tournaments in Europe prior to the formation of the European Tour, and remained an important event for years afterward. ... Its status declined beginning in the 1990s as its purse fell. ... Surpisingly, in its long history, no golfer won it more than twice. But Greg Norman and Bernard Gallacher each achieved his two victories in back-to-back years.

First played: 1956

Last played: 2008
