Steve Stricker has been the hands-down best player on the circuit in 2023, winning six times, most on the tour, with three of those wins coming in the senior majors. He has five runner-up finishes in 16 events and his tie for 15th two weeks ago, on the heels of a returning from the Ryder Cup in Rome where he was a vice captain, was his lone finish outside the top 10 all season.

Oh, and he’s banked $3,986,063, the most in a single season, a total that is nearly double of the guy who’s No. 2 on the money list. Another $14,000 in earnings this season and he’ll be the Champions tour’s first $4 million man.

He’s been so good, he’s openly talked about returning to the PGA Tour.

“If it takes a couple of tournaments and I play horribly, that may be it,” Stricker said. “But if I play a couple of tournaments and play decent, or play well in one or two of them? I had a chance to win Phoenix two or three years ago.”

He knows for sure he’ll enter the Players Championship and the PGA Championship in 2024, having earned a spot in those after winning the senior versions of those majors.
