Description

    The Canadian Tour heads into the 2002 season hoping to ride an unprecedented wave of momentum that has garnered attention worldwide. Showcasing men's professional golf in Canada and abroad, the 2002 Tour season will feature 19 events in four countries and a record purse of more than $3.2million CDN.

    From the early 1970's right through 1977, Canada's top touring professionals plied their trade on what was known as the Peter Jackson Tour, and continued to play in various provincial Open championships until the mid 1980's. In 1985,shortly after the formation of the Tournament Player's Division of the Canadian Professional Golfer's Association, a young pro named Bob Beauchemin wrote in the initial media guide "the tournament players of Canada are coming into an exciting era of development in professional golf across Canada." The statement was certainly a sign of things to come. Thanks to the tireless of efforts of Beachemin, along with others that included Canadian golfing standouts Dave Barr, Dan Halldorson, Rick Gibson and Jim Rutledge, the Canadian Tour was born as an official not-for-profit entity in 1989, and to this day is fully owned by its member players. Beauchemin, the first Commissioner of the Canadian Tour, remains a Tour member to this day, as does Barr, Halldorson, Gibson and Rutledge.

    Over the years, the Tour has changed with the times and today finds itself at a plateau never before seen. The Canadian Tour has been lifted to a new level, punctuated by record crowds at events in Canada, the initial venture into the United States and, along with it, the ten-year agreement with The Golf Channel that will see a minimum of six-events televised annually on television's premier golf source. Former Commissioners Beauchemin, Dick Grimm and Jacques Burelle have collectively put the Tour on the world map, something Commissioner-elect Ian Mansfield stresses must be built on.

    "This Tour is continuing to evolve and has taken a new direction than it did in my era," says Beauchemin. "The way the world Tours are truly becoming global, it makes sense. The affiliation with The Golf Channel is the biggest step the Canadian Tour has ever taken. I am proud of what we did when we began, and am proud of how this Tour has developed."

    All of Canada's top professionals have played on the Canadian Tour, including PGA Tour winners Barr, Halldorson, Mike Weir and Richard Zokol. More than 100 others have used the Canadian Tour as a springboard to international stardom, among them Steve Stricker, Notah Begay III, Scott McCarron, Stuart Appleby Chris DiMarco and Kirk Triplett. Through the end of the 2001 season, the top 20 Canadian Tour grads had won more than a combined $75 million on the PGA Tour.

    The Canadian Tour has close to 200 members from several countries. Fields at Canadian Tour events feature an international mix of up and coming stars and established veterans. A little less than half of the membership is Canadian, and the rest is made up of international players. As an associate member of the International Federation of PGA Tours, winnings at official Canadian Tour events are included in the World Golf Rankings. The top 30 players from the Canadian Tour Order of Merit are exempted into the final stage of Qualifying for the following year's British Open and, for the first time beginning in 2002, the top two players will receive exemptions into the second stage of PGA Tour Qualifying.

    The Canadian Tour is often incorrectly referred to as the CPGA Tour or the Canadian PGA Tour. The Canadian Tour and the Canadian PGA (CPGA) are two distinct organizations. Generally speaking, the CPGA is the governing body of golf club professionals in Canada, while the Canadian Tour is comprised of touring professionals.

    The commissioner of the Canadian Tour is Ian Mansfield.
