The PGA TOUR is the organizer of the main professional golf tours in the United States and North America. It organizes most of the events on the flagship annual series of tournaments also known as the PGA TOUR, as well as PGA TOUR Champions and the Web.com Tour, as well as PGA TOUR Canada, PGA TOUR Latinoamérica, and PGA TOUR China. The PGA TOUR is a nonprofit organization headquartered in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.
Originally established by the Professional Golfers' Association of America, it was spun off in December 1968 into a separate organization for tour players, as opposed to club professionals, the focal members of today's PGA of America. Originally the "Tournament Players Division", it adopted the name "PGA TOUR" in 1975 and runs most of the week-to-week professional golf events on the tournament known as the PGA TOUR, including The Players Championship, hosted at TPC Sawgrass; the FedEx Cup, with its finale at The TOUR Championship at East Lake Golf Club; and the biennial Presidents Cup. The remaining events on the PGA TOUR are run by different organizations, as are the U.S.-based LPGA TOUR for women and other men's and women's professional tours around the world.
