Sports Trivia Questions - Golf Trivia

Updated on May 28, 2018

Think you know professional golf trivia? I’ve put together some sports trivia questions from the world of professional golf that I think any golf fan would be interested in.

There have been many arguments over the years as to who the best golfer of all time is. A number of years ago, Tiger Woods when on a 10 year run, the likes of which we will probably never see again. He was winning virtually everything and most often doing it with record results. But if we are to measure the greatest by the number of majors (Masters, U.S. Open, British Open and PGA) won, then one man is still on top. Jack Nicklaus holds the record with 18 major victories. What makes Jack's record even more impressive is not just the 18 victories in majors, but also the 19 second place finishes. In fact, he has finished in the top three in majors an unbelievable 48 times!

But let's get back to the trivia. You may find some of these golf trivia questions a little easier than some of the others, but I think you will find all of them to be challenging. These questions cover a span throughout the 20th century, with some more recent, thrown in.

Test yourself and see how you do.


10 correct – You broke the course record with an eagle on the final hole.

7-9 correct – You broke par for the first time.

4-6 correct – You broke 100 for the first time.

1-3 correct – Your tee shot on the first hole finds the water.

0 correct – Your caddy ran off with the bag on the first tee.

Good luck!

      ValentineGolf, probably the best for improving your short game is Dave Pelz' Short Game Bible. Pick up the book. It is actually a bible for any amateur golfer and IMHO it is more than worth its weight in gold. There are also short clips you can find on youtube...
