1999 Nike Tour

The 1999 Nike Tour season ran from January 7 to October 24. The season consisted of 30 official money golf tournaments. The top 15 players on the year-end money list earned their PGA Tour card for 2000.


The number in parentheses after winners' names shows the player's total number of wins on the tour including that event. No one accumulates many wins on the tour because success at this level soon leads to promotion to the PGA Tour. All the official tournament names began with "Nike", for example Nike South Florida Classic: these are eliminated here for brevity.
