Professional golfers who compete on the PGA TOUR’s international tours received good news.
The TOUR confirmed via email, which was obtained by GolfChannel.com, that it will conduct a series of eight tournaments, beginning in August, in order to provide playing opportunities to members of the Mackenzie Tour, PGA TOUR Latinoamerica and PGA TOUR China – all tours that had their seasons either canceled or altered because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 54-hole tournaments will feature 144-player fields, 36-hole cuts to the top 55 and ties, and minimum $100,000 purses with a winner’s share of $16,000. The entry fee per event is $675.
