PGA Tour champions

The PGA Tour is an organization headquartered in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, USA. The PGA Tour should be distinguished from other PGA organizations. Since 1968, it has been completely separate from the Professional Golfers’ Association of America (“PGA of America”), which is now primarily an association of club professionals. (Prior to 1968, it was the PGA of America’s Tournament Players Division.) The PGA of America, not the PGA Tour, runs the PGA Championship and the Senior PGA Championship and co-organizes the Ryder Cup with the PGA European Tour. The PGA Tour does not run the women’s tours in the USA, which are controlled by the independent LPGA. The governing body of golf in the USA is the USA Golf Association.
