Introduction[edit]

The KeMongSa KPGA Tour Team League was the first Team League and was broadcasted by MBCGame from February 2, 2003 to June 22, in 2003. The league featured 5 Proteams who managed to advance through the Qualifier by defeating one of the other 5 Proteams each. The qualified teams played a Round Robin with the 2nd and 3rd place finisher facing each other in a Playoff Match to determine who faces the Winner of the Regular Season in the Grand Finals. The tournament was at first sponsored by KeMongSa but after they declared bankruptcy LifeZone took over. LifeZone later went on to also sponsor 2003 LifeZone KPGA Team League
