What Does PGA Mean in a Text?

The Professional Golfers' Association (Great Britain and Ireland) was established in 1901. Originally, it was a combined organisation for club professionals and tournament professionals. However, with the advent of the financial boom in tournament golf in the 1970s, a separate tournament division (with its headquarters at Wentworth Club) was established. The two Branches separated in 1984, and the PGA European Tour was created.

Similarly, The Professional Golfers' Association (America) was founded in 1916. This too formed its own tournament players’ division, in December 1968, which adopted the name PGA Tour in 1975. The PGA of America is the largest working sports organization in the world, comprised of more than 30,000 men and women working to develop the game of golf. The PGA Tour manages the majority of the high-profile professional golf events, including the Players’ Championship.
