Named for the great Harry Vardon, a golfer who won the British Open an unmatched 6 times, it was first awarded in 1937 to the golfer with the PGA Tour's lowest scoring average. Since 1987, golfers must have competed in at least 60 rounds of golf on the PGA Tour in order to be eligible to win the trophy. It is incredibly difficult to earn one Vardon Trophy, but remarkably 14 gofers have managed to win multiple times. The golfer with the most Vardon Trophies is living legend Tiger Woods with an unrivaled 9 wins.
