PGA International Tours launch new series

The PGA Tour's International Tours have announced a new US-based, eight-tournament series starting next month in Georgia with the prize of sponsor exemptions into a 2021 PGA event.

The first seven events of the series, designed for golfers who compete on developmental tours, will be 54-hole stroke-play tournaments played in the south eastern US.

The series-ending October 26-30 tournament, a 72-hole event, will be held at a site to be determined.

The champion of the final tournament and the top two players on the series-long points list will receive sponsor exemptions into a 2021 PGA Tour tournament.

"We have so many gifted, hard-working players who were anxious to play this season on their respective Tours before the affects of COVID-19 caused us to change our plans," Rob Ohno, PGA Tour Senior Vice President, International Tours, said in a news release.

"To be able to provide this series and these quality playing opportunities is very gratifying."

The series - which will contested by members from PGA Tour Latinoamerica, Mackenzie Tour-PGA Tour Canada and PGA TOUR Series-China - begins in the first week of August with three events in Georgia. The fourth tournament will be in Alabama, while the next three are scheduled in Florida.
