The four most prestigious tournaments in golf are the U.S. Open, the Masters, the Open Championship (better known to Americans as the British Open), and the PGA Championship. Together these tournaments are known as the Majors. Golf is still waiting for its first golfer to win all four majors in a calendar year, a feat known as the grand slam.
