2005 Nationwide Tour

The 2005 Nationwide Tour season ran from January 27 to October 30. The season consisted of 31 official money golf tournaments, five of which were played outside the United States. The top 21 players on the year-end money list earned their PGA Tour card for 2006.


The number in parentheses after winners' names show the player's total number of wins on the Nationwide Tour including that event. No one accumulates many wins on the Nationwide Tour because success at this level soon leads to promotion to the PGA Tour.
