No sporting listicle have been so messed around with over the past few years than the "Best Golfer Never to Have Won a Major" index.

Justin Rose (US Open 2013), Jason Day (2015 PGA Championship), Dustin Johnson (US Open 2016), Henrik Stenson (The Open 2016) and now, most improbably, Sergio Garcia, were long-time residents on the list before breaking their ducks.

So who remains? Taking no account of great golfers who will never break their duck - here's looking at you Colin Montgomerie - here are five current players who can now lay claim to the title of BGNTHWAM.

1. Rickie Fowler, US
The outrageously talented 28 year old has top five finishes in all four majors without holing the winning putt. Teed off in the penultimate group today before folding along with playing partner Jordan Spieth. He has seven pro tournament victories and will win a major one day, surely.

2. Hideki Matsuyama, Japan
Given the love for the sport there and the fact it hosts a professional tour, it seems ridiculous that we're still waiting for a Japanese major winner. The 25-year-old Matsuyama should be that man. He has four PGA Tour victories, 14 professional wins altogether and top 10 finishes in all four majors.

3. Lee Westwood, UK
Nobody has played more majors than Westwood without winning one. He has 42 tournament wins, will be remembered as a Ryder Cup legend and has top three finishes in all four majors. But he hasn't crossed that threshold and at 43, his best years might just be behind him.

4. Paul Casey, UK
A giant of the European Tour (12 career wins), Casey seemed to have a game that was tailormade to contend in the majors. Casey has been pretty good too, with top 10 finishes in all four, but as he approaches 40 he must be starting to wonder if it is ever going to happen for him.

5. Matt Kuchar, US
Kuchar is a model of consistency having won the Players' Championship, the world matchplay and the money list on the PGA Tour in 2010... but he hasn't won a major. At 38 he still has time, but not as much as some. Expect the "Koooooch" callers to be out in full force if he's in contention.
