The top 5 college seniors will earn status on the Korn Ferry Tour, according to a report by GolfChannel.com’s Rex Hoggard
Approved: By the PGA Tour Policy Board, a pathway for the top college golfers to earn status on the Tour’s developmental circuits, GolfChannel.com’s Rex Hoggard reported, citing sources familiar with the move. The program, to be known as PGA Tour University, will award status on the Korn Ferry Tour to the top five seniors who have completed their college eligibility based on their play during the past two seasons. A ranking system that is under development will be used to determine the qualifiers, who would be eligible for the KFT after the NCAA tournament finishes in early June. College players ranked Nos. 6-15 will earn access to the Latinoamerica or Canadian tours, GolfDigest.com’s Ryan Herrington reported. The program would take effect after the 2021 spring college season. The PGA Tour reportedly will introduce the program this spring.
