Who is the next dominant player on the Champions Tour?

It started with Hale Irwin, then the torch was passed to Bernhard Langer. Langer is still winning, so not done by any stretch, but who is the next dominant player to hit the over 50 circuit? It may not happen right away, but some day in the near future. I would imagine it has to be a closer, nearing or already in his 40's.

I was going to go with either Furyk or Stricker. Strick has shown he can win on the champions tour, but also still enjoys playing the PGA from time to time as well as having a pretty relaxed schedule.

I should have added the caveat about the upper tier players of the last 20 years or so, like Ernie Els. I think they have so much money now and are probably sick of the travel, I doubt they would be out in the Champions Tour, save the occasional event. Guys like Irwin and Langer were pre-Tiger, so basically pre-big money in pro golf.

I would pick Furyk. He will be able to play regular tour for a while still which could slow him from dominating Champions.

But as of now doesn’t have the 20 wins, so could turn to champions at some point, and he can score

 

Don’t think stricter will ever play the schedule to rack up Lange/Irwin numbers

I think Phil is going to play zero or less events on the Champs Tour, and it’s tough to dominate that way.

Maybe, but you still see Els traveling to play. Personally, I don't think he would dominate, but I do think that a lot of the guys enjoy the competition and comradeship of being out on tour...maybe not 30 weeks a year, but at least some.

Shouldn't you have said, "you're"? Your is the second person possessive adjective, used to describe something as belonging to you. Your is always followed by a noun or gerund.

If it is going to be anyone, it is going to be Fuyrk.

 

Playing well enough to finish 2nd at Sawgrass earlier in the year and he's never been reliant on distance to golf his ball better than almost everyone. I can see him picking fields apart by hitting every fairway, every green and putting even half decent for him.

    • Sony Open Pics from January 11, 2022 Part 1
      I was able to get out to the Sony Open today to take a few pics.  I guess due to Covid precautions they kept the spectators pretty far from the players.  Also due to camera restrictions they've put in place, I wasn't able to bring the big lens like I normally do. Hopefully they'll ease up on the ropes and I'll be able to get more pics tomorrow!
