The PGA TOUR is the world’s premier membership organization for touring professional golfers, co-sanctioning more than 130 tournaments on the PGA TOUR, PGA TOUR Champions, Korn Ferry Tour, PGA TOUR Latinoamérica, Mackenzie Tour-PGA TOUR Canada and PGA TOUR Series-China.
The modern-day PGA TOUR was formed in 1968 when a subset of touring professionals broke away from the PGA of America.
Each PGA TOUR player has earned a position on the priority-ranking system that is used to select full-field open tournaments.
PGA TOUR members hail from around the globe. In 2019-20, there are 93 active international members from 28 countries and territories outside the United States.
Through the world of golf, the PGA TOUR, backed by its network of volunteers, drives positive impact at unprecedented levels to support and improve local communities. The PGA TOUR and its tournaments have donated close to $3 billion to date to support local organizations.

The FedExCup is a season-long points competition offering unprecedented bonus money and culminating with the FedExCup Playoffs in August. TOUR members earn FedExCup points based on their finish at each tournament, with an emphasis placed on wins and high finishes. The FedExCup champion is crowned at the conclusion of the FedExCup Playoffs finale, the TOUR Championship. Visit FedExCup 101 to learn more about the FedExCup.
The FedExCup Playoffs features a progressive cut over three events. Aside from the coveted FedExCup trophy, players compete for their share of $60 million total in bonus money. The first two Playoffs events award 2,000 points to the winner (quadruple points of Regular Season events), while the Playoffs Finale, the TOUR Championship, features a strokes-based system (FedExCup Starting Strokes). The player with the lowest total score will win the FedExCup and be credited with an official victory in the TOUR Championship competition.
