Their web registration is currently broken (or my VPN is blocking it). Anyway the Philadelphia chapter has a full 2021 schedule posted. This tour as far as I can tell has no fee (but that may be revealed during the registration). However to play in a Tournament at a course that costs $99 on the weekend, they are charging $154. I would assume this covers some of the overhead as well as prize money. But no where do I see any mention of prizes/payouts etc.

The US Am Tour appears to be a re-branded Golf Channel Am Tour.

I've not heard of it, but the US Am Tour is significantly bigger.

 

 

Appreciate both of these posts.  I had played in the golf channel am tour a few years back and just recently started thinking I wanted to get back to competing again but then learned golf channel folded.  These are both perfect and in my area, (la/Orange County) the tours look like perfect compliments to each other.  Similar schedules, but US seems to be more in the fall and Premier is more tournaments coming up in the spring.  I may to give them a shot!

Thanks guys.

They come no where near me. Even the Metro New York Schedule starts in Florida.

    • Great fact based no BS commentary. Sounds like she filtered out a series of different and significant injuries. He was well above average fit and hopefully will recover and return to a normal life.
    • Thanks for your story. Seems like a realistic timeframe for me, too - as I read that in other posts as well. Maybe I am too optimistic to achieve that in only one year. I see. That's another factor which I will have to face. I broke 90 on my home course. I will probably get a reality check after I play more on other, perhaps more difficult courses. Thanks for your input! That is very interesting. I like the breakdown of what worked for you. My coach and I are working on a playbook for me and have set out specific goals to shave off strokes in particular areas of my weakness. Thanks for sharing your story.
    • I am just over 40 and I used to be quite athletic (2nd league pro in another sport). Besides my humble brag here, I feel the athletic stance and have the 4-5 hour cardio and mental focus - however my putting and driver technique cause me at around 10 extra strokes together. Yeah, I basically break 90 now: - OB driver shots, and barely over 200 yards - Above average iron shots (short and long) - making up for my driver; quite accurate and distances are by the book - 3-4 putts (messing up my score)
    • Thank you for the stats chart, that's worth gold! Yes, I have a golf coach and I keep a hand-written log in my scorebook. I am embarrassingly bad at putting (3-4) and my driver shot is not accurate and the distance is well below my age. However, my iron game is above average in terms of full swing mechanics, distance and accuracy - that was pretty much the only thing I practiced until I met my coach. The goal is to reduce by 5 putts in the short term. Thank you for your feedback. Yeah, Iooks like if I improve my putting and driving (among other aspects) to the same level as my iron skills I could be a more consistent 90s player. Come on! The putting struggle is real and tracked in my book.
    • Good luck! Let's ping each other by the end of the year again. I see that you that you also worked on your putting and short game. Good to have stretch-goals.  My golf coach guides me. Before I met him I practiced my iron game so much and completely neglected putting over that period. Genuinely, my iron game is quite accurate and the iron (short, long) distances I shoot are above average. However, I often end up doing 3-4 putts and my driver shot goes barely over 200 yards and is not accurate either. If I can shave some off those putts that could be 5-7 strokes right there.
