The PGA and ALPG have joined forces to create a new innovative tournament series called The Players Series.
The series is being described as a world-first joint tournament partnership and will see the creation of new events on the ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia and ALPG Tour schedule.
The Players Series will see both men and women compete in the same field for the same prize purse with one Order of Merit.
The Player Series will also look to the future of amateur golf by including juniors to the weekend play to rub shoulders with the professionals.
The Players Series’ primary goal is to provide quality playing opportunities and genuine pathways for Australia’s next generation of male and female professionals that complement the existing events on both tours.
More details are expected to be released in the coming weeks.
