I have honestly never anyone every claim that The Masters shouldn't be a major.  So not exactly how "strong" that opinion is

Strong may have been a bit of an exageration 😉 but it does bear thinking about, its quite weird that it is.

Most PGA Tour players would say it's the one major they'd want to win

I love The Masters, but it’s iconic in the spring. Can’t count The Open bc I want one on US soil. The PGA Champ isn’t my favorite and won’t have a lot of lead up to it this year. So my vote is the US Open, where “anybody” can qualify to play.

The Masters, no brainer for me. Helps that I've actually been in person once, you'll never forget the course, grounds and ambience once you've seen it - you can't fully appreciate it on TV, not even close. The Masters is the only tournament I always watch all four days, might/not with other majors, and almost never with other events. The back nine on Sunday is the epitome of tournament golf - even the true greats feel the pressure.

Lots of posts for the Masters, and I have to agree, but I think The Open if it were at St. Andrews or Carnoustie would be a very close 2nd. I've always liked that tourney especially at one of those locations.

I would have normally said The Open, but since that has been cancelled I will go with The Masters.

It has to be The Open.

With out The Open the Masters, PGA, USOpen, would not exist.  Don’t get me wrong, I love the Masters and understand why everyone’s heart goes there.  (I’ve got tix I’m sitting on and hope it still happens this fall - and that She Who Must Be Obeyed will still let me go...) But if there ever was just one major, you go back to the beginning.

Masters by a mile for me.  So much more invested in the shots and tournament overall.  Most golf circles seem to remember the Masters' that someone wins over any others.  For example, I remember Zach Johnson much more for his Masters victory than for his Open Championship, even though the open win was much more recent.

The Masters

It starts the season, always pristine,  always a challenge. 

Been to several other tour events including majors, but the Masters is my favorite to attend.
