From Everything.Sucks

The PGA Tour (stylized in all capital letters as PGA TOUR by its officials) is the organizer of the main professional golf tours played by men in the United States and North America. It organizes most of the events on the flagship annual series of tournaments also known as the PGA Tour, as well as PGA Tour Champions (for golfers age 50 and older) and the Korn Ferry Tour (for professional players who have not yet qualified to play on the PGA Tour), as well as PGA Tour Canada, PGA Tour Latinoamérica, and PGA Tour China.

The following piece was written by Tom Owens, who questions the integrity of the PGA Tour on, "However, despite such impressive financial gain, according to an ESPN report, the PGA tour’s U.S based tournaments gave roughly 16 percent of their income to charity, compared to the industry norm of 65 percent. So where is the rest of the money going? Well according to Charity Navigator president Ken Berger, the biggest chunk of the profit pie is “going to big prizes, cash prizes for athletes and all the promotion around it, so it’s really pathetic, actually,” “Every single taxpayer in this country ultimately is bearing the burden of having to pay the taxes for this wildly inefficient organization that’s giving so little to charity.”
