NEWBURGH, Ind. (WEHT) — The three-event Korn Ferry Tour Finals, along with the 26-event 2022 Korn Ferry Tour season, concluded Sunday evening at the Korn Ferry Tour Championship presented by United Leasing & Finance, as the second set of 25 PGA TOUR cards were awarded in a ceremony on No. 18 green at Victoria National Golf Club.

The top 25 players on the Korn Ferry Tour Finals Eligibility Points List earned PGA TOUR cards for the 2022-23 season, which begins Thursday, September 15 at the Fortinet Championship in Napa, California. This year’s Finals 25 is a mix of players earning their first TOUR card and others either retaining or improving their TOUR status for the upcoming season.

The Finals 25 features 12 rookies: Dean Burmester, Eric Cole, Austin Eckroat, Thomas Detry, Nicolas Echavarria, Tano Goya, Brent Grant, Philip Knowles, Matti Schmid, Sam Stevens, Kyle Westmoreland, Carson Young.

Justin Suh, who earned his first PGA TOUR card at the regular season finale three weeks ago, won the season-ending Korn Ferry Tour Championship presented by United Leasing & Finance, vaulting him to No. 1 in both the season-long points race and the Korn Ferry Tour Finals Eligibility Points List. By virtue of sweeping the No. 1 rankings, Suh will have fully exempt status for the 2022-23 PGA TOUR season, an exemption for the 2023 PLAYERS Championship and, for the first time in history, an exemption for the 2023 U.S. Open.

Scroll below to learn about The Finals 25.

No. 1 Will Gordon: Returning to the PGA TOUR after a full season on the Korn Ferry Tour, which saw the 26-year-old close the regular season with back-to-back T5s and win the Albertsons Boise Open presented by Chevron, the first event of the Korn Ferry Tour Finals. Plays out of Davidson, North Carolina but moved to St. Simons Island, Georgia last October and began playing with a group of professionals at Sea Island which includes Class of 2022 Korn Ferry Tour graduate Davis Thompson. First full season on TOUR (2019-20) saw him finish in the Top 125 Non-Member FedExCup Points category.

No. 2 David Lingmerth: Snapped a streak of 117 consecutive PGA TOUR-sanctioned starts without a top-10 with his wire-to-wire victory at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship, which earned him a place in The Finals 25. Bounced between the PGA TOUR and Korn Ferry Tour the last three seasons with only conditional status from his win at the 2015 Memorial Tournament presented by Workday, but now has improved status within the priority ranking via The Finals 25. A 35-year-old native of Tranas, Sweden, played collegiately at University of West Florida (one season) and University of Arkansas (final three seasons).

No. 3 Austin Eckroat: The 23-year-old native of Edmond, Oklahoma began the season with conditional status and, after missed cuts in January and April, earned his third start as the 150th player into the 156-man field for May’s AdventHealth Championship, the first event after the third reshuffle of the season. Facing the prospect of needing four consecutive top-25s to continue earning starts ahead of the next reshuffle, Eckroat rattled off finishes of T23-T23-T25-T25, shuffled up the priority ranking, and eventually finished No. 34 on the Korn Ferry Tour Regular Season Eligibility Points List off the strength of a runner-up finish at the Memorial Health Championship presented by LRS. Earned his first PGA TOUR card with a runner-up finish at the season-ending Korn Ferry Tour Championship presented by United Leasing & Finance. Played collegiately at Oklahoma State University and finished No. 3 in the inaugural PGA TOUR University presented by Velocity Global Class of 2021.

No. 4 Philip Knowles: Entered the regular season finale with two flights booked: one to Boise, Idaho for the first Korn Ferry Tour Finals event, another back to Jacksonville, which likely would have meant a trip to Q-School. Finished T10 in the regular season finale, earning a spot in the Korn Ferry Tour Finals with a No. 67 finish on the Regular Season Eligibility Points List. Held the outright lead through the first three rounds of the Albertsons Boise Open presented by Chevron, but fell into a three-man playoff and settled for T2, still more than enough for a spot in The Finals 25 and his first PGA TOUR card. The 25-year-old University of North Florida alum began the season with conditional status but shuffled in with a T22 as a sponsor exemption at the LECOM Suncoast Classic, played just outside his former hometown of Bradenton, Florida.

No. 5 Michael Gligic: A 32-year-old past Korn Ferry Tour winner who first graduated via the 2019 regular season, earned a place in The Finals 25 for a second consecutive year after a No. 129 finish on the 2021-22 FedExCup Eligibility Points List. Highlight of the Finals was a solo-fourth at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship. Plays from Kitchener, Ontario, Canada.

No. 6 Dean Burmester: The son of a professional cricketer, Burmester capitalized on opportunities at the Genesis Scottish Open (T10) and The Open Championship (T11) while playing the DP World Tour this season. The 33-year-old South African worked his way up from the Sunshine Tour, DP World Tour and, now, the Korn Ferry Tour Finals for his first PGA TOUR card. Maintained a place in the top 100 of the Official World Golf Ranking for all of 2022. Also boasts nine OWGR-sanctioned victories since 2013, most recently the 2021 South African PGA Championship last November.

No. 7 Eric Cole: A 34-year-old mini-tour legend, Cole first earned Korn Ferry Tour membership ahead of the 2017 season, roughly eight years after he turned professional out of Nova Southeastern University (played two seasons from 2006-08), an NCAA Division II program in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Struggled in 2017 and would not return to the Tour until the 2020-21 season, which saw him finish No. 100 on the points list. Earned his way back to Final Stage of the 2021 Korn Ferry Tour Qualifying Tournament and retained membership for 2022, finished No. 39 on the Regular Season Eligibility Points List, and earned his first PGA TOUR card with a T3 at the season-ending Korn Ferry Tour Championship presented by United Leasing & Finance. Has won well over 50 mini-tour events since turning professional. Son of 1973 LPGA Rookie of the Year Laura Baugh and 1977 Buick Open champion Bobby Cole.

No. 8 Joseph Bramlett: Earned a place in The Finals 25 for a third consecutive time, opening the Korn Ferry Tour Finals with a T18 at the Albertsons Boise Open and following with a T6 at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship to easily retain PGA TOUR status. Plays from Las Vegas, Nevada and maintains friendship with fellow Vegas resident and Class of 2022 Korn Ferry Tour graduate Justin Suh.

No. 9 Austin Cook: Earned a spot in The Finals 25 for a second consecutive season after he finished No. 143 on the 2021-22 FedExCup Eligibility Points List.

Played collegiately at the University of Arkansas and plays from Jonesboro, Arkansas. The 31-year-old is a PGA TOUR past champion, as he won the 2017 RSM Classic.

No. 10 Nick Hardy: Battled back from a wrist injury and nearly earned fully exempt status as a PGA TOUR rookie with a late-season charge before he ultimately finished No. 126 on the FedExCup Eligibility Points List. Improves from conditional status for the 2022-23 PGA TOUR season by virtue of earning a spot in The Finals 25. The 26-year-old Northbrook, Illinois native and University of Illinois alum previously graduated from the Korn Ferry Tour last summer following the unprecedented two-year 2020-21 combined season.

No. 11 Henrik Norlander: A two-time past champion on the Korn Ferry Tour who graduated following the 2015 and 2019 regular seasons, secured an immediate return to the PGA TOUR off the strength of a T6 at last week’s Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship.

No. 13 Ryan Armour: The native Ohioan and Ohio State University alum played the 2021-22 PGA TOUR season with conditional status from his victory at the 2017 Sanderson Farms Championship, but will now move up categorically in the priority ranking by virtue of his place in The Finals 25.

No. 14 Nicholas Lindheim: A 37-year-old two-time Korn Ferry Tour and PGA TOUR Latinoamérica winner, earned a return to the PGA TOUR with a T11 at the Albertsons Boise Open and a T17 at the season-ending Korn Ferry Tour Championship presented by United Leasing & Finance.

Won the 2022 Panama Championship, the third start of his rookie season, and narrowly missed out on a TOUR card three weeks ago, as he finished No. 31 on the Korn Ferry Tour Regular Season Eligibility Points List. Grew up playing competitive tennis like his brothers and cousins until he saw a golf course beside the tennis courts and begged his parents to let him play.

No. 17 Thomas Detry: The 29-year-old Belgian capitalized on four PGA TOUR starts and an appearance at The Open Championship this season, recording top-25s in each TOUR event and posting a T34 at The Open.
