PGA EuroPro Tour
The PGA EuroPro Tour is a men's developmental professional golf tour. It was created in 2002 by the merger of two development tours, the EuroPro Tour and the PGA MasterCard Tour.
It is based mainly in the United Kingdom, with a few events in other countries. Most of the players are British, with others coming from Ireland, Continental Europe, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. Beginning in July 2015, the four third-level tours will carry Official World Golf Ranking points.
The purpose of the tour is to provide young professional golfers with a platform to launch a tournament career. In 2015, the total prize money rose to over £800,000. Each event saw its prize fund increased by 25% to £50,000 with winner's prize remaining at £10,000. The Tour Championship has a £90,000 prize fund with £20,000 going to the winner
