About The GOLFslinger.com Tour
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.
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.
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 GOLFslinger.com Tour, you will be able to economically
gain the experience you need.
your money and come gain experience with us!
A Lower Cost Alternative
The GOLFslinger.com Tour is a low cost alternative to the
developmental-mini tours like the
E-Golf Tarheel, Golden Bear, and
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.
The economics of professional golf are very harsh.
every player without major tour status will need
to be subsidized to continue chasing the dream
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.
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
There are three 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
Finish the year inside the top 25
players on the Web.com Tour money list
Obviously to finish in the top 25 on the
Web.com Tour money list you need to play in Web.com Tour events.
