(The farther back one goes in golf history, the sketchier the record-keeping becomes. For that reason, there are some lists of all-time wins on the web that differ very slightly for some golfers, particularly those below 30 wins, from this list. For example, some sources show Cary Middlecoff with 40 wins and Leo Diegel with 30. However, the numbers in our list above are the official win totals as recognized by the PGA Tour.)
