2006 Nationwide Tour

The 2006 Nationwide Tour season ran from January 26 to November 12. The season consisted of 31 official money golf tournaments, three of which were played outside the United States. The top 22 players on the year-end money list earned their PGA Tour card for 2007.


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.
