Oldest Winners Ever on the Champions Tour

In the history of the Champions Tour, the PGA Tour's circuit for golfers 50 and older, only four golfers have won past the age of 62. And only one of those was 63.

The List of Oldest Champions Tour Winners

These are the golfers who've won at age 62 and older:

  • Mike Fetchick: 63 years to the day, 1985 Hilton Head Seniors Invitational
  • Jay Haas: 62 years, 10 months, 7 days, 2016 Toshiba Classic
  • Gary Player: 62 years, 9 months, 22 days, 1998 Northville Long Island Classic
  • Mark O'Meara: 62 years, 1 month, 18 days, 2019 Cologuard Classic

The Overall Record-Holder: Mike Fetchick

Fetchick, the oldest winner ever on the Champions Tour, recorded his record-setting victory on his 63rd birthday at the 1985 Hilton Head Seniors Invitational.

Fetchick was a 3-time winner on the PGA Tour, all three of those wins happening in 1956 (the St. Petersburg Open, Western Open and Mayfair Inn Open). Fetchick was born in 1922 and passed away in 2012. He was already 57 when the Champions Tour launched in 1980, and the 1985 Hilton Head Seniors Invitational was the only tournament he won on the senior tour.

And he earned it: Fetchick won by two strokes over Gene Littler, Orville Moody and Al Chandler after making a birdie on the final hole. He finished at 6-under-par 210.
