The 2022 Korn Ferry Tour awarded 50 PGA TOUR cards via multiple Orders of Merit.
Twenty-five PGA TOUR cards were determined via the Regular Season Eligibility Points List (e.g. The 25), with an additional 25 PGA TOUR cards awarded via the three-event Finals Eligibility Points List (e.g. The Finals 25).
Players on The 25 alternate position with those on The Finals 25 to comprise The 50 spots via the Korn Ferry Tour category on the 2022-23 TOUR Priority Ranking.
For players in The 25, their starting position on the 2022-23 TOUR Priority Ranking is determined by their Points List standing upon the conclusion of the Finals-ending Korn Ferry Tour Championship presented by United Leasing & Finance.
The player who earns the most points in the season-long standings and the player who earns the most points across the three-event Finals earn fully exempt status on TOUR and gain access to the 2023 PLAYERS Championship. The season-long points winner is also exempt into the 2023 U.S. Open. These players are not subject to periodic reshuffles.
Justin Suh won the season-long standings and also accrued the most points across the three-event Finals, punctuated with his victory at the Korn Ferry Tour Championship. As a result of "crossing over" and earning the most Finals points, he is the only player of the 50 Korn Ferry Tour graduates to earn the perks of the No. 1 position. (He does not, though, impact the 25 cards awarded via The Finals 25 points list.)
The remainder of the Korn Ferry Tour category will be reshuffled based on position in the FedExCup standings, periodically throughout the 2022-23 PGA TOUR season.
The 2022 season marked the ninth and final iteration of The Finals 25 structure. Beginning in 2023, 30 TOUR cards will be awarded via the Korn Ferry Tour season-long standings, with 10 cards awarded via the DP World Tour, and five cards (and ties) awarded via Q-School.
Here's how the Korn Ferry Tour category is ranked into the 2022-23 PGA TOUR season-opening Fortinet Championship.
