NGA Pro Golf Tour
The National Golf Association Pro Golf Tour (formerly the NGA Hooters Pro Golf Tour) is a developmental men's professional golf tour in the United States. It includes approximately twenty 72-hole Pro Series events and three 54-hole Qualifying School Prep Series events each year throughout the US South and Midwest. The NGA Pro Golf Tour is a private company founded by T.C. "Rick" Jordan in 1988 and later sold to Hooters restaurant chain owner Robert H. Brooks in 1994. Hooters was the title sponsor from 1988 through 2011. The Tour was sold to Robin Waters of Loris, SC in 2011. The Tour is headquartered in Longs, South Carolina. The NGA Pro Golf Tour, established in 1988, predates the PGA Tour-owned Web.com Tour as the longest running developmental tour in the United States.

“Do you know I believe that [William Jennings] Bryan will force his nomination on the Democrats again. I believe he will either do this by advocating Prohibition, or else he will run on a Prohibition platform independent of the Democrats. But you will see that the year before the election he will organize a mammoth lecture tour and will make Prohibition the leading note of every address.”
—William Howard Taft (18571930)

And a thousand lost golf balls.”
