The 2023 Korn Ferry Tour schedule features record prize money and three new events as well as stops in five countries and 18 states across the nation.
The 26-event schedule begins in January and ends in October, where the top 30 players on the Korn Ferry Tour Points List at the end of the season will earn PGA Tour cards. Players will compete for a record $28 million in total prize money, a 37.6% increase over last season ($20.35 million). The player who finishes atop the points list will continue to earn an exemption into the Players Championship and U.S. Open.
The Korn Ferry Tour Finals will expand to the final four events of the season and will include increased purses and points allocations and smaller fields, similar to the PGA Tour’s FedExCup Playoffs.
“The ultimate proving ground, the Korn Ferry Tour continues to identify, prepare and transition golf’s next stars to compete on the PGA Tour,” said PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan. “The success we’ve seen from Korn Ferry Tour graduates Sungjae Im, Scottie Scheffler and Will Zalatoris, the last three recipients of the PGA Tour Rookie of the Year, is indicative of the quality and talent on the Korn Ferry Tour.”
Astara Chile Classic, March 30-April 2, Santiago, Chile
Compliance Solutions Championship, June 22-25, Norman, Oklahoma
Magnit Championship, August 17-20, Jackson Township, New Jersey.
All four Korn Ferry Tour Finals events will be broadcast on Golf Channel, as well as the BMW Charity Pro-Am and Utah Championship.
“Stretching our season into October while maintaining a 26-event schedule allowed us to compose a strong tournament calendar with natural breaks, optimal golf course conditions, as well as providing our 30 graduates with time to prepare for their transition to the PGA Tour, which will begin in January 2024,” said Korn Ferry Tour President Alex Baldwin.
