The PGA Tour has announced they will be merging PGA Tour Canada and PGA Tour Latinoamerica to create PGA Tour Americas.
The new tour is set to operate from February 2024 and will feature 16 events across Canada, America and Latin America, with pathways available to the Korn Ferry Tour, the feeder tour for the main circuit.
PGA Tour Canada has been a fixture since 1970, previously operating under the name of the Mackenzie Tour, while PGA Tour Latinoamerica has been running since 2012.
However, 2023 is set to be the final year the tours will operate.

The new tour will begin next February, with the top 60 finishers from both the Canadian and Latin American circuits eligible for the first part of the new tour, the Latin American swing. Other routes into the tour include from PGA Tour Q-School, the Latinoamerica Dev Series, and from the Advocates Professional Golf Association (APGA).

Following the first run of tournaments in Latin America, there will be mid-season Q-School, with qualifiers joining those who finished in the top 60 from the first wave of tournaments to play in a North America swing.
At the end of the tour’s season, those finishing in the top ten will receive Korn Ferry Tour cards. Those who perform well in each individual swing of the tour will also be awarded with playing opportunities on the Korn Ferry Tour.
“As we build on the rich golf history across Latin America and Canada, we are thrilled about PGA Tour Americas and the role this tour will play in preparing players for the next step in their professional golf journey,” said Alex Baldwin, who oversees PGA Tour Americas, the Korn Ferry Tour, PGA Tour Q-School presented by Korn Ferry and PGA Tour University.
“PGA Tour Americas will be an extremely competitive tour aimed at identifying, developing and transitioning top-performing players to the next level as they ascend through the ranks and strive to reach the highest level of professional golf, the PGA Tour.”
