Top 5/10 All Time Greats List
 
Watching the new Jomez 2018 best shots vid and thought about something which I have been thinking about this year which is ... Uli is really good and has been for a long time. Then I thought about where he might rank all time. Then about a top 5 or 10 list all time. Here is mine, whats yours? (Im sure im forgetting someone important)

1. McBeth
2. Climo
3. Schultz
4. Wysocki
5. Ulibarri

6. Barsby
7. Sexton
8. Feldberg
9. Nikko
10. Anthon

No Doss on your list?

I don't recall Ulibarri winning Worlds or USDGC so I don't get the logic of putting him ahead of others on that list except maybe Anthon. Being good for a long time isn't enough, when everyone on that list has been good longer than he has except maybe Wysocki.

Is Nikko really in top ten or so? I enjoy his amazing putting when he is running hot, but is he really a top ten?

Caveat... I have no idea really... Just asking

I don't disagree that Uli has been very good for a long time, but he's never won a major and I'm hard-pressed to come up with a significant win of any kind (NT, DGPT, etc) for him. He might make the Hall of very good for his longevity, but he's not top 5 material. Arguably, he's not top 10.

Guess it depends on the criteria you're using, but my top ten, in no particular order, would have to include Climo, McBeth, Schultz, Doss, Feldberg, Greenwell, Wysocki, Jenkins, and Stokely. The tenth spot could be any of Russell, Todd, Schusterick, Sexton, Koling, Locastro, Brinster, or Barsby (for their major wins).

He has won USDGC so I think he would have to at least be in the discussion. I would put Ulibarri on my list of "top ten all-time greats who never won the big one".

Also the OP left out Shusterick, who has 3 USDGC titles. Tough to argue against that.

Isn't Uli an Am Worlds champ? Does that not count?
