THE Australian PGA Seniors Tour has been renamed the PGA Legends Tour.
PGA Australia says the new name was approved at a recent board meeting and the move will also see the tour introduce a new logo.
The PGA Legends Tour, for PGA Members over the age of 50, has approximately 30 events per year.
The biggest event on the tour, which features the likes of golfers Wayne Grady, Rodger Davis and David Merriman, is the Polygiene Australian PGA Seniors Championship which will take place from December 11-14 in Byron Bay.
The Byron Bay event will have a total prize pool this year of $80,000, reflecting the increasing interest and popularity of senior golf.
The 2009 PGA Seniors Qualifying School will be played from January 11 – 14 January at Camden Lakeside Country Club in New South Wales.
