Golfers Who Led the LPGA Tour in Wins Each Year

Below in the list of annual victory leaders on the LPGA Tour; that is, the golfer who, each year, led the world's top women's golf tour in wins. You'll see many names that you probably expected to see. But perhaps a few surprises, as well.

Which golfers have led the LPGA in wins most often? There is absolutely no surprise in that answer: Annika Sorenstam has the record. She led the LPGA Tour in wins in eight different years. Kathy Whitworth had the most wins in seven seasons, and Mickey Wright in six. Sorenstam and Wright also had streaks of five consecutive seasons in which they led the LPGA in tournament victories.
