What is the AGT?        The Accelerated Golf Tour (AGT) is a series of two–day tournaments designed for male and female collegiate and advanced high school golfers that began in the St. Louis metro area in the summer of 2011. The AGT consists of a series of tournaments during June, July and, in some years, the first week of August. The tournaments are conducted on challenging courses in the greater St. Louis metro area.
   
Why is the AGT?        After talking with many college coaches, Carol Fromuth, AGT Tour Administrator, realized there was a void in golf programs for collegiate and advanced high school players. The AGT has filled that void, providing a higher level of competition. The two-day tournaments offer an opportunity for coaches to observe players’ skills and temperament for consistency over a two-day event.

Thank You!
       Bridgestone will be offering a ball fitting session at an event this year. When that information is available, it will be announced here. Check the Sponsor page link above to see why ball fitting is so important to the game of golf.
     The following companies have donated golf balls that will given to players on the first day of each event: Bridgestone, Callaway, Srixon, Taylormade, Titleist and Wilson.
Scholarship Seminar Information        The FREE scholarship seminar we conducted in 2015 was a success. The attendance was more than we anticipated; Ping Golf Guide offered a discount to those who attended; coaches and contributors were very pleased with the questions and the interest shown by both the parents and the golfers.
     Therefore, the AGT will offer a FREE 2016 scholarship seminar on Saturday, November 5 at St. Joseph Academy. Registration is not required. The seminar is open to all college bound students, not just golfers. Coaches on the panel represent Division I, II, III, NAIA and Junior Colleges.
