PGA Tour of Australasia
Most of the leading players on the tour are Australian, with a smaller domestic contingent from New Zealand, but players from many other countries all over the world also participate. The very best Australasian players devote most of their time to the PGA Tour or the PGA European Tour, typically returning home for two or three events each year or even not at all. Therefore Australasian Tour is a feeder for the larger tours. Four or five of the leading events of each season are co-sanctioned by PGA Tour or the PGA European Tour in order to encourage higher ranked players to enter and to attract more sponsorship. Players with a background on the tour who have reached the world top 20 since the turn of the Millenium include Steve Elkington and Adam Scott.
The leading tournaments on the tour include the Australian Open, the ANZ Championship and the Heineken Classic .
The PGA Tour of Australasia's development tour is the Von Nida Tour which features around ten events with purses of around one hundred thousand Australian Dollars each.
