Yearly Top 10 Leaders on the PGA Tour

Below are the annual leaders in Top 10 Finishes on the PGA Tour. The list goes back to 1980, which is the year the tour started keeping this as an official statistic. This stat shows how consistently good a golfer has been throughout a given season.

A few notes about the list:

  • Since 1980, Tiger Woods has led the tour in Top 10 Finishes six years, and Vijay Singh five years.

  • In 1981, Tom Kite led with 21 finishes inside the Top 10. That is the highest number of Top 10 finishes since the PGA Tour began publishing this stat in 1980.

  • The lowest number of Top 10 finishes to lead the tour in a given year is nine, recorded in 2013 by Bill Haas, Brandt Snedeker and Jordan Spieth; and in 2008 by Robert Allenby and Jim Furyk.

Although the PGA Tour has only officially kept the stat of Top 10 finishes since 1980, we do know who holds the all-time record: Jug McSpaden finished inside the Top 10 in 31 PGA Tour events in 1945.
