Tiger Woods holds many records and stands alone in second place on the all-time majors list with 14 but did you know he hasn't won the most times at any of the four majors? He's not even tied for any of them. Here's a look at the top three champions at all four majors (including Woods' place):

Masters

1. Jack Nicklaus -- 6
T2. Tiger Woods -- 4
T2. Arnold Palmer -- 4

US Open

T1. Jack Nicklaus -- 4
T1. Ben Hogan -- 4
T1. Bobby Jones -- 4
T1. Willie Anderson -- 4
T5. Tiger Woods -- 3

British Open

1. Harry Vardon -- 6
T2. Tom Watson -- 5
T2. James Braid -- 5
T2. John Henry Taylor -- 5
T2. Peter Thomson -- 5
T11. Tiger Woods -- 3

PGA Championship

T1. Walter Hagen -- 5
T1. Jack Nicklaus -- 5
3. Tiger Woods -- 4

Woods' four wins came at Medinah (1999 by one over Sergio Garica), Valhalla (2000 in a playoff over Bob May), Medinah again (2005 by five over Shaun Micheel), and Southern Hills (2006 by two over Woody Austin).

With a win this week Woods could tie a major record for the first time ever with Hagen and Nicklaus. It would be fitting if Woods could get No. 5 at Oak Hill since Nicklaus got his fifth in 1980 at this very course.
