About the Legends Tour
Formerly known as the European Seniors Tour and the Staysure Tour, the Legends Tour is the men’s professional golf tour for members aged 50 and older. Five years after the first edition of The Senior Open, won by Neil Coles in 1987, more than 60 professionals called for a formally structured Tour, which was then created in 1992. Many of the pioneering champions who played on the European Tour during the 1970s, 80s and 90s make up the Legends Tour’s active membership.
In September 2020, Ryan Howsam, Staysure Group CEO, acquired a majority equity share in the Tour in a ground-breaking joint venture with the European Tour, a unique structure whereby an individual has the majority ownership in a professional tour. In 2022, the Legends Tour created new partnerships with a group of notable ambassadors that include former Ryder Cup captains and Major winners including: Paul McGinley, Paul Lawrie, Michael Campbell, Mark James, Ian Woosnam, Thomas Bjorn, Tom Lehman and Jean van de Velde.
Colin Montgomerie, Sam Torrance and Woosnam are among the winners of the John Jacobs Trophy, which is awarded to the golfer who finishes first on the Legends Tour Order of Merit presented by Rolex each season.
The Legends Tour provides unmatched playing experiences for amateur golfers at its Alliance Series and Celebrity Seriesevents. These experiences provide golfers with unique once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to rub shoulders with and play alongside legends of the game at competitive events hosted at world-class golfing destinations.
The Legends Tour supports the European Tour in ‘Driving Golf Further’ through the guiding principles of being innovative, inclusive and global.
