As the PGA TOUR previously announced in June 2022, the top five finishers and ties at Final Stage of 2023 PGA TOUR Q-School presented by Korn Ferry will earn PGA TOUR membership for the 2024 season.
The field at Final Stage of PGA TOUR Q-School presented by Korn Ferry will feature players who advanced through the various stages of Q-School – including Pre-Qualifying, First Stage, Second Stage – and others who automatically qualify for Final Stage by meeting the criteria of at least one exemption category.
In addition to awarding PGA TOUR cards, PGA TOUR Q-School presented by Korn Ferry will determine Korn Ferry Tour and PGA TOUR Americas eligibility for the 2024 season:
- Top five finishers and ties at Final Stage will earn PGA TOUR cards
- The next 40 finishers and ties at Final Stage will earn exempt status through multiple reshuffles of the 2024 Korn Ferry Tour season, with the first 25 finishers and ties being subject to the third reshuffle, and any remaining finishers within the category being subject to the second reshuffle
