What is the PGA Tour and how does it operate?
The PGA Tour is the organizer of the main golfing tours and events that primarily take place across North America and the United States of America in general.
It was initially founded in 1929, although there have been various modifications and adjustments to the PGA Tour over the years, with significant changes that have helped turn the sport into one of the most competitive around today.
The PGA Tour schedule typically runs for a full year, with recent editions of the tour having started in September and not finished until the following September. On average, there are approximately 50 different tour events that are competed for by players who hold a Tour Card; typically those who are the best in the world and do not want to play on the other Tours that are available.
