The NGA TOUR has helped hundreds of professionals acquire their PGA TOUR, European, Web.com, and Champions Tour cards. On average over 40% of every PGA TOUR field and over 60% of every Web.com Tour field have played on the NGA TOUR. In fact, NGA alumni have won an incredible Fifteen (15) “Major” Championships.

NGA TOUR alumni include: 2012 Masters champion Bubba Watson; 2011 PGA Championship winner Keegan Bradley; 2010 PGA TOUR Player of the Year and 2003 US Open Champion Jim Furyk; 2009 British Open Champion Stewart Cink; 2009 U.S. Open Champion Lucas Glover; 2007 Masters Champion Zach Johnson; 2003 PGA Champion Shaun Micheel; 2003 British Open Champion Ben Curtis; two-time U.S. Open Champion Lee Janzen; British Open and PGA Champion John Daly; British Open Champion Tom Lehman; PGA Champion David Toms; 2003 Tour Championship Winner Chad Campbell; and recent PGA Tour Champions Michael Thompson, Ted Potter Jr, Gary Woodland, Russell Henley, Mark Wilson, George McNeill, Ted Potter Jr., Scott Stallings, Scott Piercy, and many many more.
