is an ongoing promotion where players compete in tournaments all
around the Phoenix area and are rated for overall performance during a three
month stretch of events. The winner of a given session will win a cash prize,
have his/her name immortally embroidered on the official "Phoenix Tour
Champion" jacket, and be given temporary ownership of the jacket
until another player takes away his/her title.
Runs for 3 months at a stretch, with 1 month in between each
"tour". (3 tours per year.)
There are two main prizes for each session - one for the
overall champion, and another for the highest placing rookie†. Each earns the
