NGA Tour takes game to Tift County
The PGA tour is for the professionals. The NGA tour is for aspiring golfers with hopes of one day being a professional at the highest level.
The tour makes a stop in Southwest Georgia this week, at Spring Hill Country Club in Tifton. Players completed round two on Friday after poor weather postponed play on Thursday.
The NGA is one of just a few tours below the Web.com tour. If players can make it to the Web.com, the next step is the PGA.
"There's a lot of good talent out here," golfer Kyle Ellis said. "I think it's the best third-level tour there is."
Players can only qualify for the next tour through q-school or Monday qualifiers. But in the meantime, it's a chance to get better.
"It gives them a place to play," said tour director Jeff Harlow. "A chance to maybe make some money."
