Laura Davies

Did you think we'd leave out England's most decorated golfer? No one else has as many LPGA and Ladies European Tour wins. In 1985, Davies won rookie of the year. Her 45 Ladies European Tour wins include 4 Majors. She helped female golfers to super-stardom in a sport that neglected them.

09. Luke Donald

Luke Donald

In 2001, Luke Donald, then 24 years old, made the transition to the professional ranks. He didn't immediately become a famous player, like other great English players before him. He was very unassuming on the tour circuit, occasionally picking up a few of championships.

08. Colin Montgomerie

Scottish-born professional golfer Colin Montgomerie frequently ranks among the top British players, in large part due to his excellent resume of victories on the European Tour. He has a total of 31 European Tour titles under his belt, more than any other British player.

07. Justin Rose

Justin Rose

Few people are aware that Justin Rose was actually born in Johannesburg, South Africa, even though everyone knows he is an English player. Of course, his parents are English, and when Justin was five years old, they returned to England.

06. Ian Woosnam

Ian Woosnam, a former Majors winner, is renowned for having, shall we say, a low center of gravity. Although he is not particularly tall, he has become well known for his extremely strong swing.

05. Henry Cotton

Henry Cotton

There's a chance that young golfers have never heard of Henry Cotton. The fact that Cottonn was one of the most productive English golfers of his generation is unaffected by this. Cotton, who was born in 1907, gave up his education to focus on his golfing career.

04. Ian Poulter

 Ian Poulter

When Poulter was just 4 years old, his accomplished father gave him a modified 3-wood that the young kid could swing, and Poulter began playing golf. As they say, the rest is history. 3 PGA Tour Championships have been won by Ian Poulter.

03. Lee Westwood

 Lee Westwood

When Lee Westwood won the Pete McEvoy trophy to end his amateur career at age 17, he started establishing a name for himself. While he doesn't have as many PGA Tour victories as Faldo (and no Majors), he is a very accomplished player on the European Tour.

02. Rory Mcilroy

Rory Mcilroy

One of the most accomplished professional golfers to ever hail from Northern Ireland is Rory Mcilroy. In actuality, his financial prowess and wealth extend beyond the sport of golf.

The golfing world was ready for a new champion after the intense competition between Greg Norman and Seve Ballesteros in the 1980s. At that time, Nick Faldo became well-known. He won the Master's Tournament for the first time in 1990, and he ruled the decade up to its last years.
