Triple Crown (snooker)
The Triple Crown is an unofficial term used for professional snooker players who have won the World Championship, the Masters and the UK Championship. There are seven players who have won all Triple Crown events at least once: Stephen Hendry, Ronnie O'Sullivan, John Higgins, Steve Davis, Mark Williams, Alex Higgins and Terry Griffiths. However only Hendry, Davis and Williams have won all three Triple Crown events in a single season, and Hendry is the only player to have achieved this feat twice, in the 1989/1990 and 1995/1996 seasons.

Moulding nature at his will,

And, sculptor-like, his large design
Etched on Alp and Apennine.”
