Wayne Player, Tour Com­mis­sioner of The Player Tour LLC, an­nounced the launch of the Player Am­a­teur Tour and the Player Cor­po­rate Cup at the PGA Show in Or­lando. Pre­sented by Ti­tle Spon­sor, OnCore Golf, it is open to mil­lions of am­a­teur golfers in the U.S., re­gard­less of their hand­i­caps or gen­ders.

Wayne’s fa­ther, leg­endary golfer Gary Player, said that “I am very proud of Wayne for con­tin­u­ing the fam­ily legacy of en­cour­ag­ing golfers of all abil­i­ties to en­joy the com­pet­i­tive­ness of the game and wish him great luck with this ex­cit­ing new ven­ture”.

The Tour con­sists of a sep­a­rate men and ladies Tour, its unique for­mat al­low mem­bers to se­lect their own time and lo­ca­tion to play a round of golf – en­abling play­ers of each gen­der to com­pete against each other de­spite not be­ing able to play at the same time/event or venue.

“We have cre­ated a plat­form for golfers of

all skill lev­els to com­pete in a va­ri­ety of flights and di­vi­sions, from USGA® - af­fil­i­ated mem­bers and to even play­ers with no of­fi­cial golf club af­fil­i­a­tion or hand­i­cap” said Wayne Player.

Top per­form­ing golfers will be­come el­i­gi­ble to com­pete in Re­gional tour­na­ments, all-ex­penses paid, with the top six play­ers from each of the var­i­ous flights and di­vi­sions qual­i­fy­ing for a six-day, all-ex­penses paid trip to Las Ve­gas to com­pete in the sea­son-end­ing OnCore Mil­lion Dol­lar Cham­pi­onship at TPC® Las Ve­gas – fea­tur­ing $1,075,000 hole-in-one cash prizes.

“To­gether with our Spon­sors - OnCore Golf, Ar­golf Put­ters, Skimp, Easy Glove, Nu­calm and Par Bar, we have taken the time to cus­tom­ize unique ex­pe­ri­ences for our mem­bers, it’s all about their ben­e­fits, in­ex­pen­sive mem­ber­ship fees, un­matched re­wards, un­par­al­leled golf­ing trips and an op­por­tu­nity for am­a­teurs to win $1,075,000 cash. Ev­ery­thing we do is tai­lored to meet our mem­ber’s ex­pec­ta­tions”.

“This dis­tinc­tive for­mat for the masses will not only rev­o­lu­tion­ize the way golfers from across the United States can com­pete, but will also serve as an out­stand­ing plat­form for rais­ing funds for the JDRF Foun­da­tion, the lead­ing global or­ga­ni­za­tion fund­ing type 1 di­a­betes, a dis­ease that I have suf­fered from my­self for many years” said Wayne Player.

“Type 1 di­a­betes is an au­toim­mune dis­ease that strikes both chil­dren and adults sud­denly. It has noth­ing to do with diet or life­style. There is noth­ing you can do to pre­vent it. And, at present, there is no cure.”

Coin­cid­ing with the launch of the Player Am­a­teur Tour, Wayne Player also an­nounced the launch of the Player Cor­po­rate Cup pre­sented by OnCore Golf.
