The Asian Tour


A Brief History Of The Asian Tour

The Asian Tour is the principal men's professional golf tour in Asia except for Japan, which has a separate tour.
The Asian PGA was formed in July 1994 at a meeting in Hong Kong attended by PGA representatives from eight countries and the first season was played in 1995. In 1998 the Asian Tour became the sixth member of the International Federation of PGA Tours. In 2004 the tour was taken over by a new organisation established by the players and official money events on the tour count for World Golf Ranking points.
