PROS FORE PROS TOUR
We are Skyler Finnell and Sean Walsh; two professional golfers from California and Texas pursuing our dreams of playing on the PGA Tour. When COVID-19 suspended a majority of our playing opportunities across the country, we decided to pull the trigger on an idea we had been joking around about for a few years; our own professional mini-tour. The original plan was to strictly follow the Korn Ferry Monday Qualifiers, but soon found that we could be much more. This began our pursuit of becoming the most pro-friendly mini-tour that has ever been created. We then began creating events that would be in convenient locations, at convenient times, and with fair entry fees and payouts based on these principles:
- If you finish in the top third of a field, you deserve to AT LEAST make your entry fee back
- Providing competitive reps is why we started PFP, so we will NEVER have a cut at our events
- Creating challenging course setups (yardages/conditions/pins) that will sharpen our participants’ games
- Payment via ACH Direct Deposit, ensuring earnings are in our players’ accounts ASAP
We understand that there are an incredible amount of options out there when it comes to mini-tour golf, but we would not have decided to start the Pros Fore Pros Tour if we didn’t think we could make a difference in players’ ability to chase the dream, the dream that we are all chasing (including ourselves).
With that being said, we would like to welcome you to the Pros Fore Pros Tour. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us via our contact info listed below. We are very happy to have you, and are excited to see you at a future event.
