Zero Tolerance - Behavior unbecoming a professional
Players that don't adhere to this policy will face suspension from the Tour
Friday, June 21, 2019

In 2018 the MLGT had 701 members and ran 125 tournaments with one goal. To provide an affordable training ground for golfers to develop their game to try to earn status on a major tour like the Web.com and PGA Tour. The MLGT has 67 venues on it's course list. In 2018 the tour visited 30 of those facilities.

There have been two instances in the past 30 days where a player has damaged golf course property during one of our events. Both resulting in a financial resposibility for the tour and a major strain on the relationship of those two venues. There is and will continue to be a zero tolerance policy for behavior unbecoming a professional. Any player behaving inappropriately will face possible suspension from the MLGT. There is no place for this in professional golf. The majority of the venues that host our events do it as a favor to support tournament golf and help provide an avenue for players to develop their game to hopefully reach the next level. The MLGT and the participants in each event are guests of the host venue and will treat the course and the staff with the upmost respect.

2019 US Open winner Gary Woodland recently said "There are going to be bad things in your life, a lot of ups and downs, but the only thing you can control is your attitude. And if you do that, in the end good things will happen."

Next time you face adversity on the golf course just remember that 700 other people besides yourself rely on the MLGT to compete on and everything you do and say affects the tour's relationship with the host venue. And without host venues there will be no tour.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this matter and play well!
