Jacob Bridgeman, the No. 2 player in the PGA TOUR University Class of 2022, finished T18 at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship and was declared #TOURBound with one event remaining in the Korn Ferry Tour’s 2023 season.
The Clemson product has 13 top-25s and six top-10s this season, and at No. 15 in the current standings, he is assured of a spot in the top 30 at the end of the Korn Ferry Tour Championship presented by United Leasing & Finance, Oct. 5-8.
“I see myself out there (on TOUR) for years to come,” Bridgeman said. “It’s just exciting to be out there competing against the best players in the world and that’s what all of us dream to do to – test ourselves against the best in the world and (the TOUR) is the best place to do it. I’m excited for that.”
Bridgeman joins Pierceson Coody (No. 1, Class of 2022) and Adrien Dumont de Chassart (No. 2, Class of 2023) as players named #TOURBound before the season finale. Four other members of the Class of 2022 are in the top 30 with one event to play: Parker Coody (20th on points list), Chris Gotterup (25th), Joe Highsmith (27th) and Jackson Suber (30th).
Highsmith made the biggest move last week, finishing a career-best T2 and improving 21 spots to No. 27. Patrick Welch also rose to the occasion in Columbus, as he improved five spots to No. 74 after finishing T24. By moving into the top 75, Welch earned a spot in the season finale and is exempt on Korn Ferry Tour for 2024.
In all, 13 PGA TOUR University alumni qualified for the 75-player field at the Korn Ferry Tour Championship presented by United Leasing & Finance.
