Lowest Winning Scores Ever on the Champions Tour

Which golfers from the senior set have posted the lowest winning scores in the history of the Champions Tour? Below is the list. We've included only 72-hole tournaments here, and included only winning scores for the purposes of this record.

258
Tom Lehman, 2012 Charles Schwab Cup Championship. Lehman carded rounds of 68-63-62-65.

261
Jack Nicklaus, 1990 Mazda Senior Tournament Players Championship (65-68-64-64)
Kenny Perry, 2013 Constellation Senior Players Championship (71-63-63-64)

Note that Nicklaus held the overall record for 22 years until Lehman lowered it in 2012.

262
Vijay Singh, 2018 Charles Schwab Cup Championship (67-67-67-61)

263
Orville Moody, 1988 Vintage Chrysler Invitational (64-66-70-63)
Tom Watson, 2003 Senior Open Championship (66-67-66-64)

264
Miller Barber, 1982 Suntree Classic (66-66-66-66)
Kenny Perry, 2017 U.S. Senior Open (65-64-67-68)

265
Doug Tewell, 2001 Countrywide Tradition (66-67-70-62)
Bernhard Langer, 2015 Constellation Senior Players Championship (65-65-67-68)
Rocco Mediate, 2016 Senior PGA Championship (62-66-71-66)

There are three things that really jump out about this list. First, the duration of Nicklaus' record. Second, the fact that Kenny Perry appears twice on the list. And third, of the 11 scores listed, six of them happened in senior majors.
