About the PGA TOUR
The PGA TOUR is a tax-exempt membership organization of professional golfers. Its primary purpose is to provide competitive earnings opportunities for past, current and future members of the PGA TOUR, Champions Tour and Nationwide Tour; to protect the integrity of the game; and to help grow the reach of the game in the U.S. and around the world.
In 2008, the three Tours will compete in 108 events for approximately $355 million in prize money. Tournaments will be held in nine countries outside the U.S. and in 37 states. In addition to providing competitive opportunities for its membership, TOUR events also generate significant funds for local charities. In fact, the three Tours have surpassed the $1 billion mark in overall charitable contributions. The PGA TOUR's web site address is http://www.pgatour.com/ and the company is headquartered in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL.
SMJ operates and manages new media businesses in Japan, including mobile and PC sites for the NFL, NBA, NHL, WWE, Wimbledon, ATP Tennis Masters Series, LPGA and Serie A Soccer.
