The PGA Tour kicked off tournament week with the first Executive Women's Day hosted by the John Deere Classic.

More than 100 accomplished local women came out to the golf course for a behind-the-scenes look at how the tournament operates.

Guests toured the club house, media center and other tournament venues.

It's all part of the PGA Tour's Women's Initiative, designed to inform women about important health and wellness issues, as well as learn about the game of golf.

Donna Fiedorowicz, a member of the PGA Tour staff, explained the idea behind the Women's Initiative.

"Most of the women don't play golf. It's a wonderful opportunity for them to learn a little bit more about what is our passion, which is charity. We're just shy of $2 billion to charity at the PGA Tour with the John Deere Classic close to $6 million this week in giving back."

The PGA Tour's Women's Initiative plans to be at 17 tour events this season and 35 tournaments by 2015.
