Welcome to The Thomson Tour
The Thomson Tour is quality winter golf tour for Professionals, assistants and trainees.
The 2010/11 season will comprise of eleven 18 hole stroke play events and culminate in the Thomson Tour Championship..
Each tournament will have a limited field.
The Thomson Tour is open to all declared Professional golfers, regardless of age or gender from the UK and overseas.
a) THE THOMSON TOUR is open to:
PGA Trainees and PGA members and declared Professionals
b) Entry fee per tournament: £40
The Breakdown of this is as follows:
1) Lunch (approx. £8) is included
2) Members pay approx. £30 into main prize fund
3) Trainees pay approx. £20.... into main prize fund and £10 into separate TRAINEE prize fund
If a trainee is a “Main Prize Fund” winner he is entitled to claim the larger prize but cannot claim both.

The Thomson Tour Championship and Order-of Merit
From each prize fund approx 10% will be deducted and 5% will be added to the Championship Prize and 5% will go to an Order-of Merit prize fund. Also half of any fines incurred by the players will be added to fund.
The top 5 players in the final Order-of-merit will receive a % of the fund as follows:
1st-50%, 2nd-30%, 3rd-20%
The Championship Prize Fund could then be larger than normal events
To play in the Championship you will have to have played in 5 events leading up to it.
AlsoThe Tour I would like to see trainees playing again so if the Head Professionals can encourage their trainees to join, the Thomson Tour is sanctioned by the PGA they can use the events to fill in their playing record cards.
Please read rules and regulation carefully especially concerning withdrawals.
We look forward to seeing you in October.
