Champions Tour Record for Most Consecutive Birdies

Do you know what the Champions Tour record is for making the most birdies in a row? Now you do: The longest birdie streak in senior tour history is eight birdies in a row.

And eight consecutive birdies is a streak that has happened five times, by five different golfers. Here's the list.

Most Consecutive Birdies on the Champions Tour

The five golfers who've made eight birdies in a row in a Champions Tour tournament are:
  • Chi Chi Rodriguez, 1987 Silver Pages Classic (second round)
  • Jim Colbert, 2000 TD Waterhouse Championship (first round)
  • Dana Quigley, 2005 Bruno’s Memorial Classic (first round)
  • Joe Ozaki, 2006 Ford Senior Players Championship (second round)
  • Mark O'Meara, 2019 Cologuard Classic (first round)
Rodriguez and O'Meara won the tournaments in which they set/matched the record. The other three record-holders did not win those events.

Since Chi Chi's consecutive-birdie-streak was the one that first established this record, we'll tell you a little bit more about that one.

The 1987 Silver Pages Classic was played at at Quail Creek Country Club in Oklahoma City, Okla. Rodriguez led from start-to-finish — it was a wire-to-wire week for Chi Chi. And he was the hottest golfer in the game at the time. It was win No. 3 in Rodriguez's other record-setting streak — four Champions Tour victories in a row.

His birdie streak began on the sixth hole and lasted through the 13th hole. Five of his birdie putts were from inside 10 feet, two others were 12 and 15 feet, and another was 35 feet.

In 2018, Rodriguez returned to the club and was honored during a plaque dedication. The plaque was placed near the club's sixth hole where his birdie streak started.
