Who is the oldest PGA Tour winner?

Davis Love III is the third-oldest PGA Tour winner, taking the 2015 Wyndham Championship at the age of 51 years, 4 months for his 21st career PGA Tour win. However, at the 2017 Greenbrier Classic, Love III has the potential to become the oldest PGA Tour winner in history.

Sam Snead is the oldest PGA Tour winner. He accomplished this feat in 1965 at nearly 53 years old when he won the then-Greater Greensboro Open for the seventh time. 1956 for his final PGA Tour win and seventh win in his event.

In the history of the PGA Tour, just seven players have managed to win past the age of 50. Before Craig Stadler took the 2003 B.C. Open, it had been 28 years since a 50-plus player had won on the PGA Tour.
