Golf Visions Thailand
The All Thailand Golf Tour (or simply as ATGT) is the main professional golf tour played by both men and women in Thailand. All Thailand Golf Tour office is headquartered in Bangkok, Thailand. Originally the "TPC Tour", it adopted the name "All Thailand Golf Tour" in 1999.
The tour is open to professionals and amateurs. Each tournament is a stroke play event held over four days of approximately 72 holes with the cut being made after two days after approximately 36 holes.
The tour began in 1999 and was advanced by the first chairman of Asian Tour, Supphaphorn Marphongphong, who further gathered more support from other professional golfers in Thailand and correspondingly became All Thailand Golf Tour's first commissioner. Boonchu Ruangkit, professional golfer, has been the Chairman of All Thailand Golf Tour Tournament Player Committee (TPC) since 1999 and is still actively involved with ATGT's development.
In 2018, the OWGR announced that the All Thailand Golf Tour would be added into the world rankings starting in 2019.
