List of golfers with most PGA Tour of Australasia wins

This is a list of golfers who have recorded the most tournament wins on the PGA Tour of Australasia since it was established in 1911. It is currently known as the PGA Tour of Australasia. It was previously named the Australian Tour from 1973 to 1991. This list contains golfers who have won any number of events that are and/or have been recognized as professional golf events in Australia. There are some complications in preparing such a list, and different publications have produced different numbers.

The PGA Tour of Australasia is based in primarily in Australia with a few events held in neighbouring countries including New Zealand, China and Korea. Originally known as the Australian Tour, the tour was known simply as the Australasian Tour, or Australasian PGA Tour, until it was rebranded as the PGA Tour of Australasia.

The number of wins a player can accumulate on the PGA Tour of Australia depends in part on how many years he devotes to the tour. There have always been some leading Australian players or Australian Tour members from outside Australia who have gone on to play part or full time on the U.S.-based PGA Tour and cut back their commitments in Australia, and this seems to be an increasing trend.

Many of the players on the list have won many events on other tours and unofficial events. The numbers in the "Majors" column are the total number of major championships the player won in his career whether or not he was a member of the Australian Tour at the time. U.S. Major Championships are not counted as Australian Tour victories, and do not count towards the Order of Merit. Players under 50 years of age are shown in bold.

Members of the World Golf Hall of Fame are annotated HoF.

This list is up to date through 2014 season.
