Japan Golf Tour


A Brief History Of Japan Golf Tour

The Japan Golf Tour was founded in 1973 and as of 2006 it offers the third highest annual prize fund out of the regular men's professional tours after the PGA TOUR and the European Tour. Official events on the Japan Golf Tour count for World Golf Ranking points, and success on the tour can also qualify members to play in the majors.

Most of the leading players on the tour are Japanese, but players from many other countries also participate. The tour is currently run by the Japan Golf Tour Organisation (JGTO), which was established in 1999.
