PGA Tour acquires Canadian Tour
October 19, 2012

The PGA Tour has acquired the Canadian Tour, giving it smaller circuits north of the border and in South America as a potential starting point to eventually reach the big leagues.

Web.com Tour cards will be awarded to the top five players on what now will be called ''PGA Tour Canada,'' with the next five players given exemptions into the final stage of qualifying school for the Web.com Tour. The Canadian circuit will have at least eight tournaments next year, each with prize money of about $150,000.

The tour previously started the PGA Tour Latinoamerica, which began in September and features 11 tournaments.

Each tour will have separate Q-schools for potential members.

The PGA Tour this year provided funding and other services to the Canadian Professional Golf Tour.
