Top 10 players with the most PGA Tour starts

Imagine how much golf you have to play at the highest level to reach these kinds of numbers

 

When Bill Haas chose his 68-year-old father Jay Haas to play alongside him at the 2022 Zurich Classic, it pushed him closer to becoming just the second player to make 800 starts on the US circuit.

It got us thinking, so here are the top 10 golfers with the most career PGA Tour starts in its storied history…

1. Mark Brooks

Appearances: 803
Wins: 7

Mark Brooks turned professional in 1983 and won for the first time on the PGA Tour in 1996 – which was a year when he won three times including the PGA Championship. Brooks beat Kenny Perry in a playoff at Valhalla to win his only major title. He went on to win four more times on the circuit and reached 18 in the Official World Golf Rankings.

That’s more than 7,600 appearances for 179 wins – including Bobby Wadkins, who holds the unfortunate record for most PGA Tour starts without a win. (His older brother, Lanny, more than made up for it with 21 wins, including the PGA Championship, and a spot in the World Golf Hall of Fame.)

Golf is hard, folks.
