The Korn Ferry Tour has announced additional modifications and details regarding the restart of the 2020 schedule and a fall calendar of events that will be part of a one-time, combined 2020-21 Korn Ferry Tour season.
The announcement of a fall schedule comes after the PGA Tour announced last week that, due to circumstances related to the Covid-19 pandemic and the cancelation or postponement of 13 events from the 2019-20 tour season, eligibility has been extended for exempt 2019-20 PGA Tour members for the 2020-21 season.
These adjustments will result in the Korn Ferry Tour not having a graduating class in 2020.
However, the tour has established a performance benefit for the top 10 from the Korn Ferry Tour points list following the conclusion of the 2020 Korn Ferry Tour Championship. Those players will be granted access into all PGA Tour additional events for the 2020-21 season.
The newly created 2020-21 Korn Ferry Tour schedule that will bridge two seasons will conclude with 25 PGA Tour cards awarded at the 2021 WinCo Foods Portland Open, with an additional 25 cards awarded at the conclusion of the 2021 Korn Ferry Tour Finals.
With six events completed through the El Bosque Mexico Championship, the remaining 2020 schedule – subject to change – now consists of 23 events. Korn Ferry Tour events to be contested in 2021 as part of the combined 2020-21 schedule will be announced later this year.
While we won’t have the opportunity to graduate a Korn Ferry Tour Class in 2020, we feel our reimagined wraparound schedule with newly created playing opportunities is the best solution to our season that has been disrupted by the COVID-19 crisis,” said Korn Ferry Tour president Alex Baldwin.
