DAVID LEADBETTER PROSPECTS TOUR 2000

 

Following the success of the Junior Golf Tour over the last seven years, as a natural progression of that tournament, the Prospects Tour was set in place during 1999. The tournament has been established to cater for an elite group of young male golfers who have successfully negotiated the junior years of golf and wish to further their amateur careers within a structured framework, without the fear of being balloted out. This allows individuals to make specific plans for the year, knowing that major amateur championships have been carefully avoided.

The patron of the tournament is David Leadbetter, who has hands on involvement with the tour and its development.

At each two day event throughout the year, the Prospects Tour will have sixty competitors. Guaranteed places will be available for those wishing to compete as Regular Members and other places are available for Official Reserves, who may have other commitments. The reserves will be part of the tournament in every respect and will qualify for the prizes on offer. The number of reserves will be restricted.

The tournament itself comprises of ten two-day events with eighteen holes of strokeplay golf each day. The combined scores of each competitor over two rounds of golf at each venue will determine the outcome, the winner being the person recording the lowest aggregate.

A points system will operate and an ongoing order of merit table will keep competitors informed of their position throughout the year. The person who accumulates most points during the year will become Prospects Tour Champion.

The tournament has been made as affordable as possible and prize money is restricted for that reason. Players compete mainly for experience against their peers and it is hoped that the Tour will enable individuals to judge at this new level, whether or not they feel they are ready to pursue a career as a playing professional.
