PGA TOUR vs. PGA


Did you know the PGA and the PGA TOUR are not the same? 
The PGA TOUR is a membership of professional golfers. The PGA is the Professional Golfers’ Association of America, a membership organization for club professionals. The PGA TOUR should not be referred to as the PGA. While the two organizations work closely together, the PGA TOUR and the PGA of America are separate entities with different logos.

Did you know that the PGA TOUR does not own a major on TOUR? 
The Masters is owned and operated by Augusta National, U.S. Open by the USGA, the PGA Championship by the PGA of America, and the British Open by the Royal and Ancient. 

Did you know the PGA TOUR owns and operates 13 tournaments? 
The Championship Management department of the PGA TOUR has a satellite office to run each of these events including the Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS Championship. Most golf events you see on TOUR are owned and operated by their own foundation. The other events operated by Championship Management are: Hyundai Tournament of Champions, Northern Trust Open, Mitsubishi Electric Championship at Hualalai, the World Golf Championships (Cadillac Championship, Dell Match Play & Bridgestone Invitational), The Barclays, TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola, The Presidents Cup, Dominion Charity Classic, Charles Schwab Cup Championship, CIMB Classic, and THE PLAYERS Championship.
