Most Career Holes-in-One on Pro Golf Tours

Who holds the record for most career holes-in-one made on the PGA Tour? How about the LPGA Tour, the European Tour, the Champions Tour? Aces are a lot of fun for spectators — but a lot more fun for the golfers who make them. On this page, we'll run down the list of golfers who hold the professional tour records for most aces.

PGA Tour Hole-in-One Record-Holder

Two golfers share the PGA Tour's record for most career holes-in-one: Hal Sutton and Robert Allenby. Sutton and Allenby made 10 aces each over their careers. Sutton got his first in the 1985 Bing Crosby National Pro-Am, and his 10th happened in the 2003 Bank of America Colonial. Allenby's first was in the 2001 Invensys Classic at Las Vegas. He tied Sutton with his 10th ace during the 2016 CareerBuilder Challenge.

LPGA Tour Hole-in-One Record-Holder

Kathy Whitworth, the LPGA's all-time leader with 88 career wins, also holds the tour's record for most career aces. She made 11 of them. Her 11th and final ace was in the 1983 Henredon Classic. And just like her 88 wins, Whitworth's 11 aces are the most in professional golf on any major tour, men or women.

European Tour Hole-in-One Record-Holder

The all-time hole-in-one record-holder in European Tour tournaments is Miguel Angel Jimenez with 10. Jimenez was tied with Colin Montgomerie with nine aces each until he knocked in his 10th career hole-in-one during the 2015 BMW PGA Championship. Jimenez was 51 years old at the time of his record-breaking ace, and it happened 18 years after his first European Tour ace. That was in the 1990 Emirates Airline Desert Classic.

Champions Tour Hole-in-One Record-Holder

There are three golfers who share the Champions Tour record for most career aces with six each: Miller Barber, Graham Marsh and J.C. Snead. Barber's first two aces happened in the same tournament, the 1985 Greenbrier American Express Championship. (Coincidentally, two of the worst single-hole scores in Champions Tour history also happened in that tournament.) His sixth hole-in-one on the senior circuit was at the 1996 Bank One Classic. Snead tied the record with his sixth in the 2007 The ACE Group Classic; and Marsh tied the record with his sixth in the 2012 Principal Charity Classic. (Before reaching the senior circuit, Barber had five PGA Tour aces, Snead had two, and Marsh none.)
