Why YOU Should Play
The Minor League Golf Tour
A Lower Cost Alternative
Preparation for Qualifiers
Mission is to provide an affordable, top level professional
golf training ground for
players who aspire to play on the
PGA, Web.com, Champions, and LPGA Tours.
It takes 3, 4, even 5 years for a very good player to
determine if their game can elevate to handle world class competition. By
playing on The Minor League Golf Tour, you will be able to economically
gain the experience you need.
Our fee structure, payout formula and event schedule is what
makes our tour distinctive. The tour was founded in 2004 to help all
aspiring golfers take their best shot at playing professional golf on a major
exempt status tour.
The Minor League Golf Tour is a lower cost alternative to the
developmental-mini tours like the

every player without major tour status will need
to be subsidized to continue chasing the dream.
We pay deep, not top heavy.
It makes sense that the major tours PGA,
Web.com, European, LPGA,
and Champions all pay top heavy. The players earn
and/or keep their status based upon the money list.
A very small group of top players outside of these status based tours earn
enough money playing golf to sustain their dreams on "developmental-mini tours".
While it is good for them, it takes hundreds of players
to support them.
are like Minor League Golf Tour 1-Day events, you need to go low. Of the
approximately 21 annual Web.com Tour Events that you can
qualify for, 15 are in
the United States.
Not only do our 1-Day events help you prepare for Web.com and PGA Tour
qualifiers, they accelerate your development by allowing you to get in the hunt
much more often than you would in multiple day events, helping you learn to handle the pressure of being in
contention and seeing yourself on the leader board.
So if you are in the majority that keep on paying HUGE
dollars for experience, stop wasting your money and come
play with us.
The Road To Exempt PGA Tour Status
The 3 ways to get to the PGA TOUR
1. Earn enough money in Official PGA Tour
events by Monday qualifying or by getting sponsor exemptions
While it is technically possible (Tiger did it), you pretty much have to have
that much game and sponsor recognition. So unless you're Ricky Fowler, it
is truly unlikely. BTW Ricky earned over $500,000 in 2009 via sponsor
2. Earn Status via The Web.com Tour Regular Season (25)
25 PGA TOUR cards are awarded based on the
final Web.com Tour money list.
3. Earn Status via The Web.com
Tour Finals (25)
The final 4 events of the Web.com Tour season
will determine 25 additional PGA TOUR cards,
for a total of 50 to be awarded by the
Web.com Tour each season.
eligible to compete in the Finals are the
top-75 players on the Web.com Tour money
list, those who finished 126-200 on the PGA
TOURs FedExCup points list and non-members
who have earned enough FedExCup points from
their performance on TOUR to place them
126-200 on the official FedExCup points list.
players who earn their membership
will be next in priority for PGA TOUR
tournament fields following the top 125 from
the previous seasons FedExCup Points List and
other exempt eligibility categories.
