Korn Ferry Tour Championship Series

The Korn Ferry Tour Championship presented by United Leasing & Finance has traditionally served as the final event Korn Ferry Tour season that awards the top-25 players within the Finals their PGA TOUR cards. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 season has been combined with the 2021 season, postponing PGA TOUR promotion until the end of the 2021 season. In 2020, the three-event Korn Ferry Tour Finals has been replaced by the Korn Ferry Tour Championship Series.

Similar to the traditional Korn Ferry Tour Finals, the Korn Ferry Tour Championship Series will continue to have elevated purses and points. But instead of competing for PGA TOUR cards, the Korn Ferry Tour Championship Series centers around two main incentives:

  • The top-10 players in the Korn Ferry Tour points standings at the conclusion of the Korn Ferry Tour Championship presented by United Leasing & Finance will earn entry into the PGA TOUR’s additional events (also known as opposite-field events) during the 2020-21 season. 
  • The top-five players (not otherwise exempt) on a three-tournament points list encompassing Albertsons Boise Open presented by Kraft Nabisco, Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship and Korn Ferry Tour Championship presented by United Leasing & Finance will receive exemptions into the 2020 U.S. Open at Winged Foot.

With U.S. Open exemptions and entry into the PGA TOUR’s additional events on the line, the Korn Ferry Tour Championship presented by United Leasing & Finance will continue to provide dramatic storylines down the stretch at Victoria National.
