PGA TOUR EXPANDS OPPORTUNITIES FOR NON-MEMBERS
Published August 30, 1995
The PGA Tour Tournament Policy Board voted yesterday to expand the number of tournaments available to "nonmembers" from five to seven, Because the Players Championship, the NEC World Series of Golf and the three U.S. majors do not count against the limit, the change will allow international players who are members of another circuit access to a total of 12 Tour events. The Board also has made it "easier" for graduates of the Qualifying School to get into tournaments, by reducing the number of spots reserved for PGA of America members, amending the medical exemption category and reserving the top 125 exempt list to Tour members only. These changes "should allow" all Q School grads the chance to compete in 26 or 27 events (N.Y. TIMES, 8/30).
