About the Senior Tour
Many of the pioneering champions, whose ambitions in the last three decades of the 20th century led to the creation of the European Tour, are now developing the European Senior Tour with equal success. Included in that number are past Ryder Cup Captains and players, Major Champions and countless winners on the European Tour.
From a starting point of only one significant over 50s event – the PGA Seniors Championship – the European Senior Tour comprises a schedule of 14 tournaments throughout Europe and beyond in 2017, as the boundaries of the game continue to be reshaped.
The introduction, in 1987, of the Senior Open Championship and a Neil Coles victory over five former Open champions, led two years later to more than 60 professionals calling for a European Senior Tour to be formally structured.
In 2003, the Senior Open Championship was officially recognised as a Senior Major, incorporated into the European Senior Tour and PGA TOUR Champions schedules. Swift progress through the nineties produced one of the most impressive success stories in the 20th century’s final decade of sport. Tournaments were staged in ten countries and on three different continents during 2016, while a Qualifying School is employed to identify each season’s new intake.
