The Korn Ferry Tour announced Wednesday the introduction of the Korn Ferry Tour Points System, a season-long system in which players accumulate points in each eligible official money event. The Korn Ferry Tour Points System shall be set forth annually by the PGA TOUR Policy Board.
Korn Ferry Tour Points Distribution will be set as follows.
• Official Korn Ferry Tour events each award 500 points to first place.
• The final Regular Season event will award 600 points to first place.
• All Korn Ferry Tour points will be calculated out to three decimals.
The table below shows the specific number of points awarded to each position in each of the two types of Korn Ferry Tour events.
Korn Ferry Tour points are distributed to players earning official money. Amateurs are not eligible to earn Korn Ferry Tour points.
• Example: If an amateur finishes third at an event and a professional finishes fourth, the professional receives fourth-place points. Third-place points will not be awarded at all.
Korn Ferry Tour points are awarded at official Korn Ferry Tour events where official money is earned.
• Example: If an event is shortened to 36 holes, it is listed as an unofficial victory but awarded official money, so Korn Ferry Tour points are awarded.
At the conclusion of the Regular Season, the top-75 players in Korn Ferry Tour Points plus ties will be eligible to play in the Korn Ferry Tour Finals.
Additionally, players ranked Nos. 126-200 on the PGA TOUR’s Official FedExCup Points List (as well as Non-members who would have earned, if they were members, enough FedExCup Points from their performance in official-money PGA TOUR events in the current season to place them within Nos. 126-200 on the Official FedExCup Points List following the conclusion of the event immediately preceding the first FedExCup Playoffs event) will be eligible to compete in the Korn Ferry Tour Finals.
The top-25 players from the Official Korn Ferry Tour Regular Season Points List at the conclusion of the final Regular Season event will carry all points earned via the Korn Ferry Tour Regular Season through the Korn Ferry Tour Finals.
The Korn Ferry Tour Finals events will award 1,000 points to the player finishing first, with the remaining points distributed as shown below.
