While the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup Playoffs officially wrapped with the conclusion of the Tour Championship in August, the Korn Ferry Tour still had several tournaments left on the docket, leading up to the season’s grand finale, the Korn Ferry Tour Championship in Newburgh, Ind.

The tournament presented the final opportunity for players to earn their way onto the PGA Tour in 2024, as 30 cards were awarded to the players who finished among the Top 30 on the season-long Korn Ferry Tour points list.

Five players who were outside of the Top 30 at the start of the week played their way to a Tour card: Tournament winner Paul Barjon moved from No. 45 to No. 8 with his second win of the season, while Mac Meissner, Wilson Furr, Josh Teater and Roger Sloan made smaller moves that proved to be significant.

Of the 30 Korn Ferry players who earned their cards on Sunday, 18 will be PGA Tour rookies in 2024.
