New Faces on Tour: Who Earned Their PGA Tour Cards Through the Korn Ferry Tour?


The Korn Ferry Tour, formerly known as the Tour, is the PGA Tour’s developmental tour. The tour has replaced the Q-School as a direct pathway for professional golfers to the PGA Tour. This can happen a couple of ways, with the rarest being the “battlefield promotion” that awards any player who wins 3 events immediate promotion to the PGA Tour for the rest of the year and the following year. The other PGA Tour cards are available for the top-25 golfers in the Korn Ferry Tour regular season points list, as well as the top-25 on the season ending Tour Finals. The Tour Finals is a series of 3 events open to the the top-75 on the Korn Ferry Tour’s regular season standings, as well as members and non-members of the PGA Tour who finished the regular season ranked 126-200 on the FedEx Cup points list.
