Most Wins on Champions Tour: The All-Time Leaders

Golfer Bernhard Langer plays a shot

The Champions Tour (formally named PGA Tour Champions) is the top professional golf tour for senior (50-and-over) golfers. It was founded in 1980. The all-time leader in Champions Tour wins is Hale Irwin, but another golfer is closing in.

Irwin's total of 45 career wins currently tops the list below, but Bernhard Langer is on 44 and counting. In Champions Tour history, 41 golfers have won at least 10 times. That breaks down like this:

  • Only 2 golfers in Champions Tour history — the aforementioned Irwin and Langer — have won at least 30 times.
  • 5 Champions Tour golfers have reached the 25-win plateau.
  • 11 golfers have won at least 20 tournaments.
  • 16 golfers have won at least 15 times on the Champions Tour.
