In the Hunt Again

Colorado Golf Hall of Famer Brandt Jobe adds yet another top-12 PGA Tour Champions finish to his ever-growing total

By Gary Baines – 10/17/2021

Six years ago this week, Colorado Golf Hall of Famer Brandt Jobe made his debut on PGA Tour Champions.

The former Kent Denver golfer ended up finishing 12th on Sunday in the SAS Championship in Cary, N.C., another strong — but not unusually so — showing for Jobe.

In fact, it was his 36th career top-12 finish on PGA Tour Champions. Given that it was his 118th Champions tournament, that means that Jobe has placed in the top 12 more than 30 percent of the time he’s teed it up. That includes two victories in senior events.

To put that into perspective, the all-time gold standard for PGA Tour Champions, Colorado Sports Hall of Famer Hale Irwin, has placed in the top 12 in a remarkable 46.8 percent of his Champions starts. Of course, Irwin has won a record 45 times on PGA Tour Champions.

Jobe, 56, posted rounds of 70-69-69 for an 8-under-0par 208 total at the SAS Championship, where he ended up four strokes behind champion Lee Janzen.

In the 2020-21 combined season, Jobe owns seven top-10s and two top-5s in 31 starts.

Jobe lived in Colorado from 1970 to ’99.
