The path to the PGA Tour just got an overhaul.

Starting in 2023, 30 Tour cards will be up for grabs via the Korn Ferry Tour, up from 25 in year’s past. The Korn Ferry Tour Finals will no longer offer cards, either, with the final four events of the season now only offering elevated points and purses.

The top 30 on the points list at the conclusion of the year — regular season + finals — will earn promotions to the PGA Tour.

“Increasing from 25 to 30 PGA Tour cards annually awarded to our membership through the Korn Ferry Tour season is yet another sign our mission to produce the next generation of PGA Tour stars is working,” said Korn Ferry Tour President Alex Baldwin in a statement.

The PGA Tour also announced that 10 cards will be awarded to the top finishers on the DP World Tour (formerly the European Tour).

Additionally, the top five finishers (and ties) at Q-school will now earn Tour cards. This marks the first time since 2012 that Q-school will provide a path directly to the PGA Tour.

“Bringing back the awarding of PGA Tour cards at Q-school will be exciting for our fans, membership, and potential new membership,” Baldwin said.

Tour cards available through Q-school and the DP World Tour will first be awarded at the conclusion of the 2023 season, with membership for the following season.

“The additional Tour cards available and reimagined Korn Ferry Tour Finals will properly reward more players for season-long success,” Baldwin said.
