Who is now the worst player ever to win a major?

For a few years, Ben Curtis seemed to have a shot at the dubious “worst player ever to win a major” title. But, as detailed here, big Ben took home more hardware yesterday after winning the 84 Lumber Classic. He has now backed up his improbable 2003 British Open win with three tour wins (two this year), and he should finish in the top 25 of the money list this season.

Similarly, though Shaun Micheel got blown out in the finals of the match play championship yesterday(details here), he has also had a pretty good year. Shaun will finish in the top 50 on the money list, and I think he has shown he has enough game to be a respectable major winner.

Considering modern players, we are thus left with Paul Lawrie and perhaps Todd Hamilton (both of whom, notably, won The Open) for the WPETWAM title. But perhaps I am not a sufficient student of golf history (or I forgot some PGA winners) to provide the definitive answer to my own question. Readers?
