Golfers With Most Combined Wins on PGA Tour & Champions Tour

The PGA Tour is the preeminent men's professional golf tour in the world, and the Champions Tour (officially named PGA Tour Champions) is the top-flight for senior (50-and-over) male golfers. So most tour pros, when their PGA Tour careers taper off and they hit 50 years old, continue playing on the Champions Tour.

Golf fans often see lists of the golfers with the most PGA Tour wins, or the most Champions Tour wins. But what about all those wins combined? Take a golfer's wins on the PGA Tour, add them to his wins on the Champions Tour. Who comes out on top?

That's the list below. It includes all golfers who have won at least 25 combined tournaments between the PGA Tour and Champions Tour — so long as they have at least one win on each.

The Champions Tour did not exist before 1980. So that means the list below leaves out a lot of golfers who won 25 or more times on the PGA Tour alone — golfers like Sam Snead and Ben Hogan, who never played or won on the Champions Tour because it came along too late for them. We felt that was appropriate because the spirit of a combined-tour-wins list is that a golfer has wins on multiple tours.

So again, the following list includes only those who won on both the PGA Tour and Champions Tour, and all such golfers whose combined total is at least 25 wins.
