Most PGA Champions Tour major tournament victories

Most PGA Champions Tour major tournament victories

The most PGA Tour Champions major tournament victories is 12, achieved by Bernhard Langer (Germany) between 2010 and 2023.

The PGA Tour Champions is a men's professional senior tour open to players aged 50 and above. Langer’s victory at the 2023 US Senior Open saw him overtake Hale Irwin’s record of 45 wins on the tour. He has won all five of the tour’s major tournaments: the Tradition (2016, 2017), the Senior PGA Championship (2017), the Senior Players Championship (2014, 2015, 2016), the US Senior Open (2010, 2023) and the Senior Open Championship (2010, 2014, 2017, 2019).

Bernhard Langer's incredible (PGA Tour Champions) career by the numbers

1439609293

Bernhard Langer won on Sunday. Again. To break his own record for being the oldest PGA Tour Champions winner. Again. Golfers have longer careers than other professional athletes, but this is just ridiculous.

Langer has had a longer career than most if you just count his time on the senior tour. And he's certainly made more than most. Heck, the two-time Masters champ has made three times as much since turning 50 than he did on the regular PGA Tour. And the dude showed his longevity isn't stopping any time soon after his dominant win at the 43rd U.S. Senior Open.

RELATED: How Bernhard Langer broke his putter in the most amateur way ever

With 46 career victories on the senior circuit, the 65-year-old German has passed Hale Irwin's seemingly unbreakable record. Here are some other numbers that tell just how amazing Langer's (long) run of dominance has been.

16: The number of seasons Langer has played as well as the number of seasons in which he's recorded a win.

11: The number of consecutive seasons Langer has won at least two tournaments. That's a decade straight of multiple victories. Since turning 55 and being eligible for senior discounts at most places.

6: The number of times he's won the season-long Schwab Cup. Bernhard was nice enough to let Steven Alker or Padraig Harrington win that this year.

40: Langer's number of career runner-ups on the senior tour. That's a lot of close calls on top of those 46 wins!

12: Langer's record number of career PGA Tour Champions majors. He's also the only golfer to have won all five of the senior tour's majors. Let's just call is the Bernhard Slam.

11: Langer's record for being the tour's money leader, including seven times in a row. Sorry for using the same number twice, but that's amazing.

10: The number of times Langer has won a tournament by at least five shots, including on Sunday. As if that's not crazy enough, consider he's separating himself from the field this much during mostly 54-hole events.

13: Langer's biggest blowout came over four rounds at the 2014 Senior Open Championship. As if you needed another example of why this dude is the Tiger Woods of the senior tour.

$34,367,569: Langer's career PGA Tour Champions earnings . And that doesn't even include all his Schwab Cup bonuses! Add in another $8.2 million for that and that puts him up to nearly $42 million!

Again, those are just his earnings since turning 50. Bernhard, you beast.

Who are the best golfers in the history of the Champions Tour? Below we give you our ranking of the Top 10 players ever on the senior circuit. The Champions Tour was founded in 1980, and we consider the golfers' accomplishments only during their time playing that tour, after turning age 50. What they did on the PGA Tour doesn't figure into our rankings. So, without further adieu, here are the Top 10 Champions Tour golfers ever.

This is the easiest pick in our Top 10. Irwin , without a doubt, is the best Champions Tour golfer ever. He won 45 times, which is 16 more than anyone else. Consider this: Not only does Irwin lead with 45 Champions Tour wins, but no other golfer has even reached 30 wins. Irwin also won seven senior majors, second-best in tour history. He was Player of the Year three times, money leader three times, and scoring leader four times.

Irwin showed remarkable consistency and longevity, too. He won twice in his age-50 season (1995), and from then until 2005, when he turned 60, Irwin never won fewer than twice a year, or had fewer than 11 Top 10 finishes. That included seasons of nine wins (1997) and seven (1998). His last win was in 2007, at age 62.

Langer was a model of consistency from the moment he joined the over-50 tour. In his first seven Champions Tour seasons, he led the tour in money five times — in fact, he led every year he was healthy and able to play a full schedule in that time period. In 2014, Langer became the 10th golfer to reach 20 Champions Tour wins. At the 2014 Senior British Open, Langer won his third senior major and set a tournament record — and a record for all senior majors — for largest margin of victory (13 strokes ). He finished 2014 with five wins, two wins in majors, and led the tour in wins, money and scoring average.

After that superb 2014 season, Langer had five seasons in which he led the tour in wins, and five leading in earnings — both all-time bests. He also won his fourth Player of the Year Award, the only Champions Tour golfer to win that award four times.

Lee Trevino

Trevino burst onto the Champions Tour in 1990 with 15 Top 2 finishes, including seven victories. Most of his wins were in his ages 50 through 55 years, a period during which he won more than twice each year. He won only three times afterward. But during his 50-55 years, Trevino won 26 senior tournaments. With the latter three, Trevino reached 29 wins — second-best behind Irwin.

Trevino won four senior majors, tied for seventh-best on the list of golfers with the most senior major wins . But his four included the two most important ones, the U.S. Senior Open , and Senior PGA Championship . Trevino won three Player of the Year awards, two Champions Tour money titles, and three scoring titles.

Jack Nicklaus

The Golden Bear didn't win any Champions Tour awards, never led in money or scoring, and won only 10 titles total. So what's he doing this high? There are two reasons we rank Nicklaus so high:

  • Eight of his 10 Champions Tour wins came in majors , which is the record for most wins in senior majors;
  • Nicklaus won those 10 titles and eight majors in a paltry number of Champions Tour starts.

The only reason Nicklaus' overall win total is relatively low is that he played so few tournaments. He never played more than nine Champions Tour events, and that was in 2003, 13 years after his senior circuit debut in 1990.

From age 50 to 56 years, Nicklaus only played 4, 5, 4, 6, 6, 7 and 7 Champions Tour tournaments, respectively. He won one-fourth of those starts. He played only nine times combined in his first two seasons, but won five of those starts and finished in the Top 3 seven times. It's easy to believe that had Nicklaus played 15 times a year, he'd be No. 1 on this list. But he didn't. He only made "special guest star" appearances on the Champions Tour. He just did fantastic work in that very low number of starts.

Gary Player

Player's first Champions Tour win was in 1985, and his last in 1998. That's a span of competitiveness that rivals Irwin's, although Player didn't have nearly the quantity of success that Irwin did. Player's 19 overall Champions Tour victories rank 11th in tour history. But that total includes six wins in majors, which is tied for third-best. In 1987-88, Player won a total of eight times — including a Champions Tour-record three consecutive majors (1987 Senior Players Championship , 1987 U.S. Senior Open, 1988 Senior PGA).

Miller Barber

Barber was the most consistent winner over the first decade of the Champions Tour, winning three of six starts in 1981, and winning at least once each year through 1989. He led the tour in money twice and was runner-up twice more; and led in scoring once. (The tour didn't start awarding Player of the Year until 1990.) Barber won 24 times, fourth-best on the Champions Tour; and he won five senior majors, tied for fifth-best. Three of those majors were U.S. Senior Opens, and Barber remains the only 3-time winner of that tournament.

Morgan is another of the most consistent performers in Champions Tour history. He posted victories in 11 different seasons, winning as late as age 61. That included two 6-win years (1997-98). He won 25 titles overall, third-best in tour history, and three senior majors. Morgan also won two scoring titles. He never led the tour in money but finished in the Top 10 nine times.

Chi Chi Rodriguez

One of the most popular players in Champions Tour history, Chi Chi — whether he was playing great or playing poorly — always put on a show. And over his first decade on the senior circuit, Rodriguez played great far more often than he played poorly. His best year — one of the best ever on the tour — was 1987, when he won seven times, had four seconds and three thirds, and led the tour in money and scoring. Rodriguez set a tour record that year by winning four consecutive tournaments. Overall, Rodriguez posted 22 wins, including two senior majors. He lost an 18-hole playoff to Nicklaus at the 1991 U.S. Senior Open and had only a 1-7 record in Champions Tour playoffs.

Watson is another golfer who never played a lot of tournaments on the Champions Tour. He played more than Nicklaus — an average of around 12 to 13 events a year — but not nearly as often as, say, Trevino or Morgan. Watson still won 14 times, and he won six senior majors (tied with Player for third-best). Watson also managed to win a money title, a scoring title and a Player of the Year award despite his limited senior schedule (all in 2003). However, Watson never won more than twice in a given season, and three of his majors are Senior British Opens , which generally had a much weaker field than the majors. His Champions Tour playoff record was only 3-8.

Don January

January was 51 by the time the Champions Tour was formed in 1980, and there wasn't a full schedule of events the first couple years. Still, he won 22 times including the Senior PGA in 1982. January was the tour scoring leader in five of its first six years of existence, and the money leader three of the first five years.

Golfers with the most PGA Tour wins of all-time

The all-time PGA Tour wins list is full of golf legends from multiple generations of the game from Tiger Woods at the turn of the century to Walter Hagen in the early 1900s.

The 2021 PGA Championship winner Phil Mickelson , who left the PGA Tour, also ranks among the winningest golfers ever, but do continue reading to learn more about several other giants of the game who deserve their due recognition and rank in the top 10 for the most PGA Tour wins.

Golden moment: Phil Mickelson wins PGA, makes history

Here is the list of golfers with the most PGA Tour wins.

T10. Tom Watson & Cary Middlecoff, 39 PGA Tour wins

T10. Tom Watson & Cary Middlecoff, 39 PGA Tour wins

When Tom Watson was at his best, so was Jack Nicklaus, making it that much more tougher for Watson during his prime in the 1960s, 70s and 80s. He was a pure ball-striker and phenomenal putter in his heyday, and had the game to travel anywhere and thrive under any conditions, good or bad.

Of his 39 PGA Tour victories, Watson won The Open Championship five times and was a steady winner during his PGA Tour career. One of those Open Championships that is forever remember is Watson’s victory in 1977 between him and Nicklaus in the ‘Duel in the Sun.’ Both were 10 shots ahead of the field at one point and Watson birdied four of his final six holes to capture the Claret Jug.

Even after his supposed prime was over, Watson won the Nicklaus-hosted Memorial Tournament in 1996 — nearly nine years removed from his last PGA Tour win — and got one more “W” at Colonial in May 1998.

Cary Middlecoff, who chose golf after a career as a dentist, won three majors and actually got his first win as an amateur at the 1945 North and South Open, which was a big tournament at the time. In the 1950s, Middlecoff racked up 28 victories, and only played 15 seasons on tour. That’s a much shorter tenure than most players on this list.

Despite playing a decade and a half on the PGA Tour, he accumulated more money during his PGA Tour career than Ben Hogan, Sam Snead and anyone during the 50s. He was one of the best in his generation in driving, with his long irons and his putting.

T8. Phil Mickelson & Walter Hagen, 45 PGA Tour wins

T8. Phil Mickelson & Walter Hagen, 45 PGA Tour wins

Phil Mickelson’s 2021 PGA Championship triumph made him the oldest major champion at 50 years old and it tied Walter Hagen for eighth on the all-time PGA Tour wins list.

Mickelson, who was was already a Hall of Famer, had little left to prove at this stage of his career. Nevertheless, he’s continued to grind and has proven he can still compete with the world’s best by winning a major.

All that’s really missing from his resume is a U.S. Open victory, and he should still have at least a few years left to take a crack at that. However, with his move to LIV Golf , it makes his chances to complete the career Grand Slam that much more difficult because of the less amount of tournaments to play in before America’s National Tournament.

As for Hagen, well, he burst onto the scene at the 1914 U.S. Open for his first PGA Tour victory in his early 20s and never looked back as he was one of the best players in the early 20th century. He won at a prolific rate, and became a pioneer for endorsements and higher prize money. Hagen was also golf’s first-ever millionaire.

Hagen’s best years came during the 1923 and 1924 seasons when he won five events each. Furthermore, Hagen won the Western Open five times, which at the time was the third biggest event behind the British Open and the U.S. Open. Speaking of the big tournaments, Hagen won 11 majors, which ranks third best, only trialing Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus.

7. Billy Casper, 51 PGA Tour wins

7. Billy Casper, 51 PGA Tour wins

To get a sense of how good Billy Casper was, consider that he won the PGA Tour’s Vardon Trophy five times — which is awarded each season for the lowest scoring average — and also also won at a clip of 9.2%. In golf, that’s quite an excellent percentage.

Casper was a strong chipper and putter who competed with many of the other stars on this list in their primes in the 1960s and early 70s. Because his game wasn’t as much of a superstar as, say, Nicklaus or Palmer, he often gets a little overlooked.

In fact, Casper went head-to-head with Palmer and came out on top in one of the most thrilling finishes ever.

At the 1966 U.S. Open, he was paired with Palmer for the final round. When they made the turn to the back nine, Palmer was seven strokes ahead. Amazingly, Casper rallied to tie in regulation, and then topped Palmer in an 18-hole playoff for one of his three major championships.

6. Byron Nelson, 52 PGA Tour wins

6. Byron Nelson, 52 PGA Tour wins

The achievement Byron Nelson will always be best known for is his streak of 11 straight victories in 1945, en route to an 18-win season. Just to put into perspective how dominant Nelson was in 1945, only three players have five PGA Tour wins in a single season since 2010.

Nelson’s 1945 season is one of those records that might never be achieved again. What’s crazy is, Nelson ranks this high on the all-time PGA Tour wins list despite retiring at age 34.

At the time, no one had ever even reached 50 wins on tour, so when Nelson started piling up trophies at such a crazy clip, it was truly mind-blowing at the time. Like Arnold Palmer, too, Nelson has a tournament named after him that still runs on the PGA Tour to this day.

In addition, World War II hurt Nelson’s chances to climb this leaderboard even more as majors and regular season tournaments were canceled, including the 1943-45 Masters Tournaments and the 1942-45 U.S. Opens.

5. Arnold Palmer, 62 PGA Tour wins

5. Arnold Palmer, 62 PGA Tour wins

While Tiger Woods lifted golf into another stratosphere in terms of coolness and accessibility, in the earlier days of television when golf was still searching for a solid audience, Arnold Palmer was the catalyst who helped the sport explode with popularity.

Beyond his undeniable star power, though, Palmer is one of golf’s greatest champions. Palmer, who was known as “The King,” had one of the most dominant stretches of all-time from 1960 through 1963, in which he won a whopping 32 times, including five majors. That is nearly half of his wins coming in a three-year span.

During the 1962 season, he won eight tournaments for the second time in three seasons. Since then, only three golfers have won eight or more times in a single PGA Tour season.

How all 4 golf majors are unique and provide tradition

4. Ben Hogan, 64 PGA Tour wins

4. Ben Hogan, 64 PGA Tour wins

There may never have been a better ball-striker in the history of golf than Ben Hogan. His steely determination, tireless work ethic on the driving range and perfection of his swing mechanics forged The Hawk into a nine-time major champion and prolific PGA Tour winner.

In his home state of Texas, Hogan won the Colonial National Invitation — now known as the Charles Schwab Challenge — five times. He is tied with Nicklaus, Bobby Jones and Willie Anderson with the record of four U.S. Open titles.

Hogan had his career impeded by serving in the Army during World War II and a near-fatal car accident in 1949 that caused severe injuries. As a result, his 1950 U.S. Open victory is considered one of the crowning achievements in golf and all of sports, signifying resilience and courage.

There is an award in his honor, the Ben Hogan Award, which is given to the top amateur and professional tournament results over the previous 12 months.

3. Jack Nicklaus, 73 PGA Tour wins

3. Jack Nicklaus, 73 PGA Tour wins

What’s perhaps most incredible about Jack Nicklaus’ career beyond his unmatched major total is how many close calls he actually had at the four Grand Slam events. In addition to his 18 major titles wins, the Golden Bear logged 19 runner-up finishes.

Considering how relatively close behind the all-time PGA Tour wins mark Nicklaus sits in proximity to Snead and Woods, those near-misses at majors have to sting a little more.

However, Nicklaus was one of the most mentally tough players the game has ever seen, and claims to have selective memory loss about the marquee events he lost. That’s part of what made him so great.

In total, Nicklaus won six Masters, four U.S. Opens, three Open Championships and five PGA Championships, completing the career Grand Slam several times. He and Harry Vardon are the only six-time champions at a single major.

The last time Nicklaus claimed glory at Augusta National Golf Club on a Masters Sunday, he was 46, which turned out to be his final PGA Tour victory.

Nicklaus’ best years came during the 1972 and 1973 seasons when he won seven events each. In addition to his two major wins in 1972, he started and ended his season with victories, beginning with the Bing Crosby National Pro-Am and concluding the year with a trophy at the Walt Disney World Open Invitational to encapsulate an all-around great season.

T1. Tiger Woods & Sam Snead, 82 PGA Tour wins

T1. Tiger Woods & Sam Snead, 82 PGA Tour wins

At the top of the PGA Tour wins list, there is a tie between Tiger Woods and Sam Snead, who combine for 22 major championship trophies.

Any casual sports fan knows about Woods’ dominance, which has fundamentally changed golf over the past three decades or so. Before going deep on his epic PGA Tour tenure, let’s first take a closer look at Snead.

Snead’s wins spanned from 1936 through 1965. His final victory came at the Greater Greensboro Open — now called the Wyndham Championship — for the eighth time. No one has won a single PGA Tour event as many times as Snead won that tournament, until Woods came along.

In addition to his prowess on the PGA Tour, Snead collected seven major titles to his overall win total. Snead won the Masters and PGA Championship three times apiece, as well as the Open Championship in 1946. The only leg of the career Grand Slam he missed was the U.S. Open, where he was a four-time runner-up.

OK, now let’s get into Woods. Here are the highlights from his record-tying 82nd victory at the 2019 ZOZO Championship in Japan:

Tiger has defied the odds time and time again, whether it’s recovering from major injuries, rebuilding his swing or rebounding from personal life challenges off the course. He went more than five years between victories from the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in 2013 to his 2018 Tour Championship triumph.

That breakthrough in the FedEx Cup finale foreshadowed Woods’ return to major glory at the 2019 Masters , which is among the most incredible wins and comeback stories in sports history similar to Hogan nearly seven decades later. It marked Woods’ fifth green jacket and 15th major, putting him only three behind Nicklaus for the all-time mark.

On the PGA Tour, Woods has matched Snead’s achievement twice of winning a single event eight times at the aforementioned Bridgestone Invitational and the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

With the news of Woods’ car accident in February 2021, making a comeback has been a goal of the Cypress, Calif. native to try and surpass Snead to get that elusive 83rd victory. We have seen him compete since the accident, most notably at the major tournaments as a result of on-going health issues.

Woods still wants that elusive 83rd victory as he looks to get try and get back on top at least one more time.

It is yet to be seen for Woods to get in 72 holes in four days to win in a fashion, comparable to Hogan, in order to become golf’s all-time PGA Tour wins leader. He has played four rounds in a tournament but not to a level of being in contention on Sunday.

Who has the most career wins on the PGA Tour ? Let's examine the five winningest golfers in PGA Tour history and their incredible trophy cases.

Tiger Woods , 82 WINS

With a victory at the Zozo Championship on Oct. 27, 2019, Woods won his 82nd PGA Tour victory, tying the record held by Sam Snead. His first PGA Tour win came 23 years earlier, on Oct. 6, 1996, at the Las Vegas Invitational. In Woods' fifth start as a pro, he beat Davis Love III in a sudden-death playoff. Woods holds the record for most consecutive weeks as the No. 1 golfer in the world and the record for most total weeks at No. 1. Woods is an 11-time PGA Player of the Year, which is also a record. He won 15 major championships, trailing only Jack Nicklaus' 18. Woods was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2021. For more on Woods' decades-long dominance, check out this breakdown of his PGA Tour victories .

Sam Snead , 82 WINS

Snead's longevity was extremely impressive, as his career spanned 30 years and he competed well into his 60s. In the 1965 Greater Greensboro Open, the 52-year-old became the oldest golfer to win a PGA Tour tournament -- a record he still holds today. Snead won 82 PGA Tour events and seven majors. He was the PGA Golfer of the Year in 1949 and a three-time PGA Tour money list winner. He earned the PGA Tour's Lifetime Achievement Award in 1998 and was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1974.

Jack Nicklaus , 73 WINS

Jack Nicklaus was widely regarded as the greatest golfer in the world during the 1960s and 1970s. He continued winning majors in the 1980s - with his final victory coming at 46 years old. Nicklaus holds the record for most major championships (18) and most Masters (six), and he's tied for the most PGA Championships (five) and U.S. Opens (four). "The Golden Bear" also finished as a runner-up 19 times in majors. From 1970 to 1979, Nicklaus never finished worse than eighth at the Masters. In 44 majors over that span, he missed just one cut. Nicklaus was a five-time PGA Player of the Year and the PGA Tour's money list winner 8 times. He was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1974.

Ben Hogan , 64 WINS

Hogan won nine majors -- tied for fourth most all time -- and he's one of only five golfers to win all four major championships. Hogan was a four-time PGA Player of the Year. In 1943, Hogan was drafted and joined the U.S. Army and over the next three years, he rose to the rank of second lieutenant. In 1946, he returned to the PGA Tour and won 13 events. Hogan was named the AP's Male Athlete of the Year in 1953 and inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1974.

Arnold Palmer , 62 WINS

Palmer was a fan favorite who helped golf skyrocket in popularity. He won seven majors -- with all his victories coming between 1958 and 1964 -- and he was the first golfer to win four Masters. Palmer was a two-time PGA Player of the Year and a four-time PGA Tour money list winner. He earned the PGA Tour Lifetime Achievement Award in 1998. He was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1974. Palmer also launched many products, owned and designed golf courses, and co-founded The Golf Channel.

Cavendish breaks Merckx’s record for most career Tour de France stage wins with his 35th victory

S AINT-VULBAS, France — Mark Cavendish broke Eddy Merckx’s long-standing record for most career Tour de France stage wins with his 35th victory on Wednesday.

The 39-year-old Cavendish sprinted for the win in the fifth stage of the Tour, pulling away some 100 meters from the line despite being bunched in. He crossed the line ahead of Jasper Philipsen and then jumped into the arms of a teammate.

Two-time champion Tadej Pogacar retained the race leader’s yellow jersey, but the day belonged to Cavendish.

He equaled Merckx’s mark of 34 wins during the 2021 Tour and went close to No. 35 in the seventh stage last year when he was narrowly beaten to the line by Philipsen. He then crashed a day later and broke his right collarbone.

Merckx, the Belgian considered the most dominant rider in cycling history, won his 34 individual stages at the Tour from 1969-75.

Cavendish’s decision to give it one more shot paid off.

“I just wanted to get the run-in to do it. I’m a little bit in disbelief. Astana put a big gamble on this year to make sure we’re good at the Tour de France,” Cavendish said. “We’ve done it.”

With his 2023 race ending early, Cavendish decided to put off retirement by a year and came back to try again.

Finally, Cavendish made cycling history — 16 years after winning his first Tour stage back in 2008.

Other riders were happy for Cavendish, with several stopping to speak with or hug him after the 177.4-kilometer (110-mile) leg from Saint-Jean-De-Maurienne to Saint-Vulbas

Merckx amassed his wins in the 1960s and 70s, an era during which his domination was such that he earned the nickname “The Cannibal.” Unlike Merckx, who won a record five Tours, Cavendish, who specializes in the sprints, has never won the overall title.

But Cavendish’s speed, prowess and longevity among his fellow sprinters have no equal at the Tour.

Cavendish won the Tour de France best sprinter’s green jersey twice. He also has won stages at all three Grand Tours — Tour de France, Giro d’Italia, Spanish Vuelta — and became a world champion in 2011.

Cavendish joined Astana after his contract with Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl expired and he was overlooked for the 2022 edition of the Tour.

Mark Cavendish claims record-breaking 35th career Tour de France stage win

Mark Cavendish crosses the finish line and raises a fist in the air

SAINT-VULBAS, France — Mark Cavendish wrote a new chapter of Tour de France history in what is expected to be his last appearance at cycling’s biggest race.

The veteran Isle of Man sprinter broke Eddy Merckx’s long-standing record for most career  Tour de France  stage wins with his 35th victory on Wednesday.

The 39-year-old Cavendish sprinted for the win in the fifth stage of the Tour, pulling away some 100 meters from the line despite being bunched in. He crossed the line ahead of Jasper Philipsen and then celebrated with teammates.

Norwegian rider Alexander Kristoff, who had crashed earlier, finished third. They were given the same time of 4 hours, 8 minutes, 46 seconds.

Sixteen years after his first Tour stage win, Cavendish spoke of his constant hunger for victory.

“I always needed to win one more,” said Cavendish, who was joined by his children on the podium. “It takes a lot to get there every year. I’ve got incredible people around me.”

Two-time champion  Tadej Pogacar  narrowly avoided a crash and finished nestled in the main pack in 35th place. While Pogacar retained the race leader’s yellow jersey, the day belonged to Cavendish.

He  equaled Merckx’s mark  of 34 wins during the 2021 Tour and went close to No. 35 in the seventh stage last year when he was narrowly beaten by Philipsen. He crashed a day later and broke his right collarbone.

Merckx, the Belgian considered the most dominant rider in cycling history, won his 34 individual stages at the Tour from 1969-75.

Cavendish’s decision to give it one more shot paid off.

“I just wanted to get the run-in to do it. I’m a little bit in disbelief. Astana put a big gamble on this year to make sure we’re good at the Tour de France,” Cavendish said. “We’ve done it.”

With his 2023 race ending early, Cavendish decided to put off retirement by a year and came back to try again.

Finally, Cavendish made cycling history, after winning his first Tour stage back in 2008.

Other riders were happy for Cavendish, with several stopping to speak with or hug him after the 177.4-kilometer (110-mile) leg from Saint-Jean-De-Maurienne to Saint-Vulbas

Merckx amassed his wins in an era during which his domination was such that he earned the nickname “The Cannibal.” Unlike Merckx, one of four riders to win the Tour five times, Cavendish has never won the overall title, or come close.

But Cavendish’s longevity among his fellow Tour sprinters has no equal.

He won the Tour de France best sprinter’s green jersey twice. He also won stages at all three Grand Tours — the others are the Giro d’Italia and Spanish Vuelta — and became a world champion in 2011.

Cavendish joined Astana after his contract with Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl expired and he was overlooked for the 2022 Tour.

Cavendish had faced a difficult start to this Tour. During the first stage, he appeared to struggle with stomach and heat issues.

“I know how it works, my trainer and everyone around me knows how it is,” Cavendish said. “I’ve done 15 Tours de France. I don’t like to have bad days, I don’t like to suffer but I know it’s just in the head and to push through it.”

Meanwhile, Pogacar has another flat stage to get through safely Thursday, having  reclaimed the leader’s jersey  Tuesday with a brilliant attack near the top of the race’s first big mountain pass.

On Wednesday, he was simply relieved to avoid crashing.

“We were in the bunch and then suddenly something came up in the middle from nowhere. The guys in front of me braked and we touched wheels a little bit, but luckily I escaped,” he said. “I reacted on instinct and was very lucky.”

The 25-year-old Slovenian  leads overall by 45 seconds  from Tour debutant Remco Evenepoel, the Vuelta and world champion in 2022. Pogacar is 50 seconds ahead of two-time defending champion  Jonas Vingegaard  — the Danish rider who was badly injured in  a high-speed crash  at the Tour of Basque Country in early April.

Pogacar is aiming for the rare Giro-Tour double, and for his third Tour title after wins in 2020 and 2021. The last rider to win the Giro and the Tour the same year was the late Marco Pantani in 1998.

Wednesday’s stage saw Clement Russo and Matteo Vercher forming a breakaway after 35 kilometers (22 miles).

Given that French riders won the first two stages through  Romain Bardet  and  Kevin Vauquelin , this may have motivated them. With rain falling, Russo and Vercher were caught with 36 kilometers (22 miles) left.

Stage 6 on Thursday is again suited for sprinters, going through vineyards to Dijon on a mainly flat trek of around 100 miles. The first individual time trial is on Friday.

COLOMBEY-LES-DEUX-EGLISES, France — Eritrea's Biniam Girmay has won a second stage at the Tour de France when he edged a sprint. Two-time Tour champion Tadej Pogacar kept the yellow jersey on Saturday. Girmay, who became the first Black rider to win a Tour stage earlier this week, timed his effort perfectly at the end of the lon stretch of road leading to the finish of Stage 8. The false flat finish suited his style, and he made the most of it to edge Jasper Philipsen and Arnaud De Lie. There was no major change in the general classification. Pogacar kept a 33-second lead over Remco Evenepoel, with two-time defending champion Jonas Vingegaard in third place, lagging 1:15 off the pace.

Many of the world’s best players are across the pond this week for the 2024 Genesis Scottish Open, but there’s a field of PGA Tour players headed to Kentucky for the ISCO Championship at Keene Trace Golf Club. Arguably the biggest storyline heading into the tournament is amateur Luke Clanton, who last week became the first amateur to finish inside the top 10 in back-to-back Tour starts — T-10 at the Rocket Mortgage Classic, T-2 at the John Deere Classic — since Billy Joe Patton in 1957.

Incredibly, with names like Joel Dahmen, Cameron Champ and Sam Ryder in the field, Clanton is the betting favorite to win the ISCO Championship at +900 (9/1). The next closest is Michael Thorbjornsen, another rising Tour star, at +1400 (14/1). Thorbjornsen, like Clanton, was a runner-up at TPC Deere Run last week.

Thanks to his amateur status, Clanton, a sophomore at Florida State, lost $804,776 in earnings over the last two weeks.

LIV Golf’s Richard Bland Wins U.S. Senior Open for Second Major Title of 2024

John schwarb | jul 1, 2024.

Richard Bland is 2-for-2 in senior majors in 2024.

Richard Bland’s remarkable late-career surge in golf can now be called historic.

The Englishman won the weather-delayed U.S. Senior Open on Monday at Newport (R.I.) Country Club, finishing off a final-round 66 in the morning and then defeating Hiroyuki Fujita on the second sudden-death playoff hole to claim the most prestigious 50-and-over title in golf.

He also won in May at the Senior PGA Championship. Bland, 51, is the first player to win his first two senior starts and both be major titles.

“I’m just thrilled beyond words,” Bland said on the 18th green at Newport CC after outlasting Fujita.

The Japanese player had led all week after an opening-round 63 but was caught by Bland in the final round, shooting 66 to Fujita’s 71. That forced a two-hole aggregate playoff, where both players parred the 10th and 18th holes.

That meant sudden-death golf at the tough 466-yard par-4 18th for as long as necessary. The players tied with bogeys on the first go-round, then on the second trip through the 18th Bland nearly holed out from a greenside bunker, hitting the flagstick. It was his first par save from a bunker all week.

Fujita failed to get up-and-down for par from short of the green, and Bland was a major champion for a second time.

“I was just thankful to get into the playoff,” Bland said. “The trap shot was one of those you could be really aggressive with. I was trying to get inside (of Fujita’s shot), put the pressure back on him.”

Bland won for the first time on the DP World Tour at age 48—in his 478th start—and signed with LIV Golf for its inaugural 2022 season. In 2023 he registered to compete in the Senior British Open, for which he had an exemption as a former DP World Tour winner being 50 years old, but was denied the chance to compete due to outstanding fines relating to his departure for LIV.

He accepted an exemption from the PGA of America to this year’s Senior PGA Championship, and in winning became eligible for the U.S. Senior Open.

He’s not eligible to play on the PGA Tour Champions as a LIV Golf member, though his two major wins count as Champions wins and makes for interesting social media posts from the Tour, especially with Bland wearing his Cleeks GC hat from LIV Golf.

The U.S. Senior Open was championship No. 1,001 for the United States Golf Association. Its 1,000th was in June at the U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2, which was also won by a LIV player, Bryson DeChambeau .

Jasper Philipsen bags Tour de France stage win as Tadej Pogačar stays in control

Sport Jasper Philipsen bags Tour de France stage win as Tadej Pogačar stays in control

Jasper Philipsen  pumps his fist on his bike as he celebrates winning Tour de France 10th stage.

Jasper Philipsen won the 10th stage of the Tour de France in a sprint finish.

Biniam Girmay and Pascal Ackermann were second and third in the stage respectively.

What's next?

Tadej Pogačar will continue to wear the yellow jersey in the 11th stage as the overall leader on the general classification standings.

Belgian Jasper Philipsen finally claimed a win in this year's Tour de France when he took out the 10th stage with a textbook sprint in Saint-Amand-Montrond.

Philipsen, who won four stages in last year's Tour de France, benefited from a perfect lead-out by Alpecin-Deceuninck teammate and world champion Mathieu van der Poel to prevail after 187.3 kilometres from Orleans.

Eritrean Biniam Girmay, who has already won two stages in this edition, took second place, with German Pascal Ackermann coming home third.

Jai Hindley and Jack Haig were the best-placed Australians in 37th and 41st respectively.

Slovenian Tadej Pogačar retained the overall leader's yellow jersey after an uneventful day as the peloton gears up for a tricky mountain stage in the Massif Central on Wednesday.

The peloton stayed compact throughout the stage amid a few rain showers, but everyone stayed quiet after Monday's rest day.

Agitation came in the final 5km with the sprinters' teams looking to get the best position.

Van der Poel crushed the pedals with 300 metres to go, leaving Philipsen to finish it off comfortably for his seventh career stage win on the Tour.

It was a big relief for the 26 year-old, whose best result in this year's race was a second place since the start in Florence.

"We came on the Tour de France with a strong lead-out train and it paid off today," Philipsen said.

"The mark is checked, now we can continue the Tour with more confidence.

"We just had to keep believing, but every time you waste an opportunity, it's gone, and chances are limited."

The only bad news for Philipsen is that he did not regain much ground on Girmay as his rival stayed firmly in control of the points classification.

Girmay has 267 points to Philipsen's 195.
