You also need to be at least 50 years of age, or 49 and turning 50 before the date of June 1, 2020. You also must apply online and pay a fee of $3,000. With the application, you will also need two letters of reference from a Class A PGA Pro or Champions Tour Member. You are also required to show a copy of your birth certificate, and results from two tournaments held in the last year.
