PGTI will now play its Pre-Q II on Jan. 24-25, followed by Pre-Q III on Jan. 27-28.

The tournament is played in two stages – Pre-Qualifying & Final stage. Roughly 300 golfers compete in the pre-qualifying stage, with 80 advancing to the final stage. There they are joined by the pros who finished outside the top-60 on the previous year’s Order of Merit.

The final is a 72-hole event and offers players tour cards across four categories:

Category A – Full Card 

Category B – Players who played all four rounds of the Final but do not earn their full card. Players who finished 61-100 on the previous year’s Order of Merit but did not earn their full card for 2022 (To be classified in this category, players must have played in the pre-qualifying event as well)

Category C – Players who played in the final but missed the cut. 

Category D – Players who missed the cut in Pre Qualifying and did not make it to the final event.
