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 seven golfers have won past the age of 62. Three of those were 63. So far, only one golfer aged 64 or older has won on the Champions Tour, and that golfer appears multiple times on the list of oldest winners.

The Overall Record-Holder: Bernhard Langer, Age 65

In 2021, Bernhard Langer became the first 64-year-old to win on the Champions Tour. In 2022, he broke his own record as oldest Champions Tour winner by winning again. Then, later in 2022, he broke his record again and became the first 65-year-old to win on the Champions Tour. It won't be surprising if before long his name is the only one that appears on the list below.

For now, Langer's record stands at 65 years, 2 months, 10 days. That's how old he was when he won the 2022 Champions Tour TimberTech Championship on November 6, 2022. Langer bettered his age by two strokes with a 63 in the second round. His final-round 66 was also the best score of that round. He finished 17-under 199 and with a six-stroke victory.

It was Langer's 44th career win on the senior circuit. That puts him just one victory away from tying Hale Irwin for the all-time Champions Tour lead in wins.
