Ladies Asian Golf Tour

The Ladies Asian Golf Tour is a women's professional golf tour that was established in 2005. At that time there were five established women's professional tours in the world, of which two were in Asia, namely the LPGA of Japan Tour and the LPGA of Korea Tour. Japan and South Korea are two of the top three powers in women's professional golf, alongside the United States. The Ladies Asian Golf Tour is effectively a tour for the rest of Asia. This is comparable to the position in men's golf, where Japan has its own Japan Golf Tour and the rest of Asia has the Asian Tour. Most of the players on the tour come from Asia, but there are also representatives of various other parts of the world.

One of the tournaments is co-sanctioned by the LPGA of Korea Tour, and the winner will receive a tour card on that tour.

Famous quotes containing the words ladies, asian, golf and/or tour:

    But there’s another knowledge that my heart destroys
    As the fox in the old fable destroyed the Spartan boy’s
    Because it proves that things both can and cannot be;
    That the swordsmen and the ladies can still keep company;
    Can pay the poet for a verse and hear the fiddle sound,
    That I am still their servant though all are underground.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    If he roars at you as you’re dyin’
    You’ll know it is the Asian Lion.
    Carolyn Wells (1862–1942)

    If there is any larceny in a man, golf will bring it out.
    Paul Gallico (1897–1976)

    Left Washington, September 6, on a tour through Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, and Virginia.... Absent nineteen days. Received every where heartily. The country is again one and united! I am very happy to be able to feel that the course taken has turned out so well.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)
