Golfers With the Most Vardon Trophies

By Ryan Watson

White Golf Ball on Field

The Vardon Trophy is awarded to the golfer with the lowest scoring average at the end of each year's PGA Tour. Named for the great Harry Vardon, a golfer who won the British Open an unmatched 6 times, it was first awarded in 1937. 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 13 gofers have managed to win multiple times.
