The Champions Tour is a golf circuit managed by the Professional Golfers' Association of America for golfers 50 years of age and older. Typically, PGA golfers graduate to the Champions Tour at the age of 50.

The Champions Tour began in 1980 as the Senior PGA Tour. Its name was changed in 2002.

The Champions Tour is has two main differences from the PGA tour in addition to the age restriction. PGA events consist of 72 holes of golf, but most of the senior tournaments are played over only three rounds, or 54 holes. Additionally, there are generally no cuts between any of the rounds. The only exceptions to these two differences are the five senior majors, which have a full 72 holes with a 36-hole cut.

With no events left in 2015, German Bernhard Langer has secured his spot as the money leader for the year. He earned over $2.34 million over the course of 19 events, of which he won two. Between 2008 and 2015, Langer has secured the top spot every year except for 2011, when American Tom Lehman captured the title.
