Remembering Miller Barber

Barber, who won 11 times on the PGA TOUR, passed away Tuesday.

Miller Barber, who made a record 1,297 combined starts in PGA TOUR and Champions Tour history and was a dominant player after turning 50, died Tuesday at the age of 82.

"We are saddened by the passing of Miller Barber," PGA TOUR Commissioner Tim Finchem said in a statement released Wednesday. "He was a wonderful player who made his mark on the PGA TOUR with 11 victories and then really excelled on Champions Tour becoming one of its best players in the Tour's formative years.  Miller and the Champions Tour's other early stars helped establish the Tour and make it the tremendous success it has become. Golf has lost a great man and competitor."

Barber made 694 starts on the PGA TOUR, winning 11 times. He then made 603 starts on the Champions Tour, winning 24 more times.
