His second-round 62 was the lowest 18-hole score in tournament history. The following week he finished runner-up at the ClubCorp Classic after being the 36-hole leader and losing in a sudden-death playoff to Scott Parel. The next week he won for the third time at the Insperity Invitational with rounds of 67-65-66 for a four-shot win over Steve Stricker and Brandt Jobe. At his first Champions Tour major, the Regions Tradition shot a final round 72 to finish T-3rd, seven shots back of winner Steve Stricker.

In the following three majors, he was T-11th at the U.S. Senior Open, T-3rd at the Bridgestone Senior Players, and T-3rd at the Senior Open. He notched top-3 finishes in four of the five senior majors in 2022. His pace slowed a bit until he finished 2nd at the SAS Championship, six shots back of champion Fred Couples. At the Dominion Energy Charity Classic the next week, he birdied three of his last four holes to beat K.J. Choi by a shot. In returning to the Timber Tech Championship, the site of his first Champions win finished T-6th. At the season-ending Charles Schwab Championships, finished 3rd at 19 under par. He led or co-led after each of the first two rounds and went the first 65 holes of the 72-hole event without a bogey or worse. But Padraig Harrington finished with rounds of 62-65 to claim the championship.
2023 Notes: The year started sadly when Alker's caddie Sam Workman passed away on February 6th. The two had been a team since 2019, when Alker played on the Korn Ferry Tour. The two started the season finishing T-2nd at the Mitsubishi Electric Championship at Hualalai, six shots back of winner Steve Stricker. Soon after, Workman was diagnosed with terminal cancer, and a week after Alker found out, Workman died. Alker finished T-8th at the Chubb Classic and then 2nd at the Galleri Classic, four shots back of winner David Toms. That marked his 12th top-2 in his first 36 starts on PGA Tour Champions. In defense of his Insperity Invitational title, Steven's son Ben debuted on Alker's bag as several of Workman's family members, and Workman's friends were on hand for the tournament. Alker didn't miss a beat as he defended his title with Ben on the bag, winning by four shots over Steve Stricker. Missed the cut at the PGA Championship.
