Japan Golf Tour
The Japan Golf Tour is a prominent golf tour. As of 2004 it offered the third highest annual prize fund out of the men's professional tours after the PGA TOUR and the PGA European Tour. However since the early 1990s, the growth in prize money has not kept pace with that on the two larger tours . Official events on the Japan Golf Tour count for World Golf Ranking points, and success on the tour can also qualify members to play in the majors.
Most of the leading players on the tour are Japanese, but players from many other countries also participate.
