The 46-event 2020-21 Korn Ferry Tour season came to a close at the Korn Ferry Tour Championship presented by United Leasing & Finance in Newburgh, Indiana. Joseph Bramlett won the season-ending event, firing a 7-under 65 with a bogey-free 6-under 30 on the back nine for a four-stroke victory.
The second set of 25 PGA TOUR cards was awarded to The Finals 25 on the 18th green of Victoria National Golf Club, as the three-event Korn Ferry Tour Finals concluded Sunday evening. The first set of 25 PGA TOUR cards was awarded following the Pinnacle Bank Championship presented by Aetna, the 43rd and final event of the regular season, three weeks ago.
Bramlett finished atop the Korn Ferry Tour Finals points standings via his victory Sunday evening, a T20 in the Albertsons Boise Open presented by Chevron, and T27 in the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship. Stephan Jaeger, who skipped the Korn Ferry Tour Championship presented by United Leasing & Finance, finished No. 1 in the season-long points standings for The 25.
By virtue of winning those respective points standings, both Bramlett and Jaeger will have fully exempt status for the upcoming 2021-22 PGA TOUR season, which begins in two weeks at the Fortinet Championship in Napa, California. Additionally, Bramlett and Jaeger earned an exemption into the 2022 THE PLAYERS Championship.
A complete recap of the Korn Ferry Tour Championship presented by United Leasing & Finance will be available later this evening, while the finalized priority ranking for the 50 players who earned PGA TOUR cards via the 2020-21 Korn Ferry Tour season will follow this week.
