Jack Warfield

PGA TOUR Latinoamérica is a professional golf tour created in 2012 by the PGA TOUR in collaboration with promoters, clubs and national golf federations in Latin America. The inaugural season in 2012 featured 11 tournaments in seven countries.

The PGA TOUR created this region-wide professional golf tour comprised of the best golfers in Latin America and other aspiring International players. PGA TOUR Latinoamérica will provide players in the region a pathway to the Tour, which could in turn lead to access to the PGA TOUR. PGA TOUR Latinoamérica events are 72-hole stroke play tournaments consisting of fields of up to 144 players.

The PGA TOUR recognized the tremendous talent and potential in Latin America and the potential to help foster the further development of elite players across the region. One of the main goals of this Tour is to develop these elite players and provide a potential pathway to the PGA TOUR. The creation of these developmental playing opportunities in the region will allow these players to gain experience and Official World Golf Ranking points.

PGA TOUR Latinoamérica will have 18 events in 12 countries in 2016. The Tour will kick off in March in Colombia and take players through various parts of the region—including Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Uruguay and the United States.
