Triple Crown (snooker)

The Triple Crown refers to winning the three most prestigious tournaments in professional snooker: the World Championship, the UK Championship, and the invitational Masters. Players who win all three tournaments over the course of their career are said to have won the Triple Crown. In January 2020, these tournaments were formally named the Triple Crown Series, with any player who has won all three gaining the right to wear an embroidered crown on their waistcoat reflecting their achievement.

Eleven professional players in snooker's modern era have won a career Triple Crown: Steve Davis, Terry Griffiths, Alex Higgins, Stephen Hendry, John Higgins, Mark Williams, Ronnie O'Sullivan, Neil Robertson, Mark Selby, Shaun Murphy, and Judd Trump. O'Sullivan has won the most Triple Crown titles, with 20, while Hendry has won 18 and Davis 15. Only Davis, Hendry, and Williams have won all three Triple Crown events in a single season, with Hendry the only player to accomplish this feat twice.
