Encyclopedia > Golfers with most PGA Tour wins

This is a list of golfers who have won five or more official money events on the PGA Tour. Players under 50 years of age are shown in bold. On his fiftieth birthday a golfer becomes eligible to compete on the Champions Tour, and he is unlikely to add to his tally of PGA Tour wins after that date (Sam Snead was the oldest ever winner at 52, and Art Wall in 1975, Craig Stadler in 2003 and Fred Funk in 2007 are the three most recent). Accumulating twenty wins is significant because it is one of the requirements for "lifetime membership" on the PGA Tour. This means that the golfer does not need to requalify for membership on the tour each year by finishing in the top 125 on the money list, or through an exemption for tournament victories. Many golfers struggle to do this through their forties, and go through a hiatus in their career before they qualify for the Champions Tour, but those with twenty wins avoid this problem. Some of the players on the list have also won many events on other tours; in particular, a high proportion of the non-Americans have done so. The PGA Tour is an organization headquartered in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, USA that operates the USAs main professional golf tours. ... The Champions Tour, a golf tour run by the PGA TOUR, hosts 30 events annually in the United States and Canada for golfers 50 and older. ... Samuel Jackson Sam Snead (May 27, 1912 – May 23, 2002) was one of the top golfers in the world for most of 4 decades. ... Art Wall, Jr (born November 25, 1923 in Honesdale, Pennsylvania; died Scranton, Pennsylvania, October 31 2001) was an American golfer. ... Craig Stadler (born June 2, 1953 in San Diego, California) is an American professional golfer. ... Fred Funk (b. ... // Top level professional golf consists of a year round schedule of weekly tournaments played all around the world. ...


The PGA Tour recognized The Open Championship as an official tour event in 1995. In 2002, it decided to classify Open Championship victories before 1995 as PGA Tour wins and the victory tallies in the table reflect this amendment. “British Open” redirects here. ...


The list is complete through the end of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial on May 27, 2007. It has been suggested that Crowne Plaza Invitation at Colonial be merged into this article or section. ... May 27 is the 147th day of the year (148th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...
