The European Tour was created by the England-based Professional Golfers Association, with responsibility for its management transferred to the independent PGA European Tour in 1984. Most tournaments on the three European Tour circuits are held in Europe, but in recent years an increasing number have also hosted various tournaments in other parts of the world.
The PGA European Tour is a player-controlled organization whose main objective is to maximize the financial income of professional players who participate in tournaments. It is privately owned and run by professionals, but controlled by the players through a 12-member board chosen from current and former players, and a committee that oversees tournaments of 14 current players.
Since 2007, the chairman of the board is Neil Coles, while the chairman of the committee is Thomas Bjørn. Almost all of the tournaments are played in Western Europe with the most lucrative being those held in the UK, Ireland, Germany, France and Spain.
Only one tournament is held in Eastern Europe behind the former Iron Curtain, the Russian Open. The PGA European Tour also organizes the Ryder Cup in collaboration with the PGA of America.
