PGA Tour Records: Consecutive Years Winning Same Event

By

Young Tom Morris

Young Tom Morris was the first golfer to record four straight wins in what is now recognized as a PGA Tour event.

The record for most wins in a row in the same PGA Tour tournament is four, shared by four golfers. One of those golfers accomplished the feat twice.

4 Wins in a Row in Same Tournament
• Young Tom Morris, British Open: 1868-70 (no event 1871), 1872
• Walter Hagen, PGA Championship: 1924-1927
• Gene Sarazen, Miami Open: 1926 (no event 1927), 1928-1930
• Tiger Woods, Bay Hill Invitational: 2000-2003
• Tiger Woods, Buick Invitational: 2005-2008

Of course, the British Open in the 1860s and 1870s wasn't part of the PGA Tour - the PGA Tour didn't exist for decades to come. But the modern PGA Tour counts all past major championship victories as official PGA Tour wins, so Young Tom's feat counts.

There have been 21 other streaks of three straight years winning the same tournament, most recently accomplished by Steve Stricker at the John Deere Classic in 2009, 2010 and 2011.
