What's at Stake in the 2020 Korn Ferry Tour Schedule

The Korn Ferry Tour is the developmental tour, or feeder tour, to the PGA Tour. The PGA Tour is top-level, the Korn Ferry is the second level of men's professional golf in the United States.

So, in a broad sense, what's at stake are the futures of the golfers playing the Korn Ferry Tour: Those who perform best in 2019 have the best chances to move up to the PGA Tour and, therefore, to begin what will possibly be long careers as touring golfers. More specifically, what's at stake are 25 spots on the PGA Tour for that tour's 2019-20 season.

The golfers who finish the year in the Top 25 on the tour's money list are guaranteed PGA Tour cards for the following season.
