    For the first time since 2012, PGA TOUR cards are available via Q-School.

    The top five and ties at PGA TOUR Q-School presented by Korn Ferry's Final Stage will earn 2024 PGA TOUR membership, resurrecting a cherished holiday golf tradition from the days of yore. Final Stage will be contested Dec. 14-17, across 72 holes, with the field playing two rounds at TPC Sawgrass' Dye's Valley Course and two rounds at Sawgrass Country Club (there will be no cut).

    After the top five and ties who earn TOUR cards, the next 40 finishers and ties will earn guaranteed starts on the 2024 Korn Ferry Tour. The following 20 finishers and ties will earn guaranteed starts on 2024 PGA TOUR Americas. The remainder of finishers will hold conditional status on the Korn Ferry Tour and PGA TOUR Americas.

    PGA TOUR Q-School by Korn Ferry began at pre-qualifying in September (eight sites), followed by First Stage in October (13 sites), then Second Stage in November (five sites). Click here for results from all stages and sites.

    The field at Final Stage will feature 167 players. Seventy-nine players advanced via Second Stage, with the remainder of the field gaining direct access to Final Stage via various exemption categories.
