Right *at* 30 years old when USDGC started.

I don't think it's a lot missing, but one big omission for sure is National Doubles. I know Climo played that a bunch and won it at least a couple times, and it was probably one of the higher paying events on tour at the time. I don't think those missing numbers amount to a lot Even if they were included, McBeth probably still eclipses Climo's raw total by mid-summer.

The larger point is the one that you flesh out, and that's that purses are bigger and tournaments are more plentiful. You don't have to win 23 of 28 events to top the yearly earnings list these days. Just consistent top 5 finishes and select wins at the right events should do it.

It's a cool stat. It just doesn't tell much of a story about the players. More about the state of the sport during each's career.

Did Climo have to win 23 of 28 to top the yearly earnings list?
