PGA TOUR University on TOUR: Sam Choi moves to No. 1 in Fortinet Cup on PGA TOUR Canada

    Written by Staff @PGATOUR

    PGA TOUR Canada

    Sam Choi finished third last week at the CentrePort Canada Rail Park Manitoba Open and improved to No. 1 in the Fortinet Cup with two events remaining in the PGA TOUR Canada season. A four-year letterman at New Mexico before transferring to Pepperdine, Choi has one win and seven top-six finishes this season, and he leads the tour in Scoring Average (67.16) and Birdie Average (5.44).

    Tommy Kuhl finished T13 in Manitoba, his third top-15 finish of the season, and improved four spots to No. 18 in the season-long points race. He joins Choi, John Pak (5th) and Connor Howe (14th) as PGA TOUR U alumni in the top 20. After this week’s CRMC Championship presented by Gertens, the top 60 players will qualify for the season-ending Fortinet Cup Championship (September 7-10).

    The top Fortinet Cup points-earner gains membership to the full 2024 Korn Ferry Tour season, while the second through fifth finishers earn conditional membership in the 2024 season. All top-five finishers are also exempt into the Final Stage of 2023 PGA TOUR Q-School presented by Korn Ferry.
