2008 Nationwide Tour

The 2008 Nationwide Tour season ran from January 24 to November 9. The season consisted of 30 official money golf tournaments, five of which were played outside the United States. The top 25 players on the year-end money list earned their PGA Tour card for 2009.


The table below shows the Nationwide Tour's 2008 schedule.[1] 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.
