Final 25 PGA Tour cards awarded at Korn Ferry Tour Championship
The start of the new PGA Tour season is only a week away, and 25 additional players from the Korn Ferry Tour will be looking forward to teeing it up at the Greenbrier after punching their tickets to the big tour at the Korn Ferry Tour Championship.
The top 25 Korn Ferry Tour players already locked up their PGA Tour cards back in August at the conclusion of the regular season. The remaining players have been battling it out over a three-tournament Korn Ferry Tour Finals series that began with the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship, then headed to the Albertson’s Boise Open, and concluded with Monday’s final round of the Korn Ferry Tour Championship. Twenty-five additional PGA Tour cards were up for grabs for the top qualifiers throughout the Finals series.
England’s Tom Lewis came into the Tour Championship at T82 in the standings. He needed a high finish to secure his card, and he delivered, winning the tournament by five shots with rounds of 68-66-66-65. Monday’s final round was his best of the week, featuring eight birdies and one bogey. You can find the full list of players who earned their PGA Tour cards in the Korn Ferry Tour Finals series below.
Some notable names who failed to secure their status via a finish in the top 25 in the Finals standings include Peter Uihlein, Ben Crane, Billy Hurley III, Harris English, Stewart Cink, Jose de Jesus Rodriguez, Hunter Mahan, Jamie Lovemark, Morgan Hoffmann, Freddie Jacobson and Johnson Wagner.
