PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – Everyone who played Final Stage of PGA TOUR Q-School presented by Korn Ferry hoped to reach the top five and earn a TOUR card.
But with 165 players in the field, another threshold was on the minds of many.
Following the top five finishers and ties, the next 40 finishers and ties earned exempt status through multiple reshuffles of the 2024 Korn Ferry Tour season. The first 25 finishers and ties were guaranteed 12 starts and will be subject to the third reshuffle. Any remaining finishers – up to the top 40 and ties – earned eight guaranteed starts and will be subject to the second reshuffle.
With a majority of the field having limited status on any tour for 2024, that was the more attainable goal. And while it meant their PGA TOUR dreams would be delayed, it kept them alive and with a place to play for 2024.
Five players – Harrison Endycott, Trace Crowe, Blaine Hale Jr., Hayden Springer and Raul Pereda – earned TOUR cards, with 53 players earning Korn Ferry Tour exempt status.
Here’s a breakdown of who earned Korn Ferry Tour status through the Final Stage of Q-School:
