There may not be a major until April, but fans of Golfing World Online took to Twitter to vote for which player they think is most likely to break their major duck in 2014. 

Three players managed to win their first major last year, with Adam Scott coming out on top in the Masters, Justin Rose becoming the first Englishman to win the U.S Open in 43 years, while Jason Dufner triumphed in the PGA Championship. Phil Mickleson picked up his first Open Championship for his fifth major victory.

It's no surprise to see world number three, Henrik Stenson, on the list after his 2013. The Swede won the U.S PGA Tour's FedEx Cup and the European Tour's Race to Dubai, the first man to win both, and in the same season.

American, Jordan Spieth, also makes the list after becoming the first teenager to win on the PGA Tour since 1931, winning the John Deere Classic two weeks prior to his 20th Birthday. 

The full list is compiled below:

10 - Thorbjorn Olesen

9 - Nick Watney

8 - Matteo Manassero

7 - Matt Kuchar

6 - Hideki Matsuyama

5 - Jordan Spieth

4 - Jason Day

3 - Brandt Snedeker

2 - Dustin Johnson

1 - Henrik Stenson
