Hey guys, hopefully you guys can answer my question.


I am trying learn about the game of golf here and was wondering.

  1. How do you get into PGA Tour
  2. What steps do I need to take to obtain a PGA Tour Card
  3. What is Korn Ferry
  4. How do I qualify for Korn Ferry
  5. Are there other ways to get a PGA Tour Card other than Q-School
  6. Is Q-School mandatory thing to go through to even get a foot in the door
  7. How do you become an amateur golfer status
  8. How do people pay for Q-School

If you guys can answer these questions for me it would be of great help.


Thank you ~ !!

    Does placing high enough or winning on the Korn Ferry get you any kind of status on that tour? The Nashville Open has a Monday qualifier for it at the course I used to play in a league at.

    Shoot even park at Jackson Park in Seattle, but you need to tee it up in the rough behind the blue tees are far as you can.

    I totally forgot that a top 10 in a PGA Tour event gets a non-exempt player into the next event without needing to Monday qualify. So you don't need to win after you Monday qualify--just make top 10's to keep it going to earn enough to get your card. Or you could win. That, of course, is the easiest way to earn a tour card.

    Top 25 finish will get you into the next event. Winning or a really high finish would get you enough points to get even better status but not sure on the exact details there.

    Win 3 times and you get the in-season promotion up to the PGA Tour. With the pandemic putting new tour cards on hold, that's the only way to get there in 2020.

    Here’s a better question. So if you dont have a tour card, never had one, and dont have any fedex cup points how do you get to qualify for all these tours?

    We don't just give secrets like that away to anyone. Come back when you shooting sub 68 like clockwork on multiple courses rated 75+. Until then post your swing on YouTube so we can give you pointers.

    Lmaoo all these sour failed golfers whose dreams were crushed that they never made PGA. 😂😂😂 I dont have a dream of making PGA at all. I literally just picked up the game about 2 months ago and wanted to know more info and more about the game and how people actually get there. I guess everyone here is too salty about their own game to even help out new golfers expand their knowledge of the game rather then help and share the knowledge. Welp I got my answers from a friend so thanks guys! Good luck on your lives Sheldons~!

    You created an account on a web forum just to ask a question that can be easily answered with google....

    If you don't understand why some people will give you obvious comedy answers, then I send you my thoughts and prayers.

    Anyone can declare themselves a professional golfer. If you want to get a job as a teaching or club pro, you generally need to earn credentials from an organization such as the PGA (not the PGA Tour). If you want to be a tournament pro, then you need to get status on one of the many professional tours throughout the world. The PGA Tour is the top pro tour, followed by the Euro Tour and the Korn Ferry Tour. If you have success on the Korn Ferry or Euro tours, it will give you some access to the PGA Tour. There are many, many lesser pro tours sprinkled throughout the world. Young players who have turned pro out of college generally turn to these if they can't work their way onto the Korn Ferry Tour or the Euro Tour. I have a friend who had some success on the MENA Tour, which got him some starts on the Euro Tour and a PGA Tour event.

    Hope this helps.

    Ohhh I see, so its the small little Tours that eventually get you a chance to go on the PGA Tour. Also fo those small Tours, do you also need a Tour Card? Or are those small Tours more for Amateurs Trying to get there foot in the door?

    The smallest tours I am aware of are regional tours that anyone can play. Just pay your entry fee and tee it up. As the stature of a tour increases, so do it's barriers to play.

    I can’t believe anyone taking this entire thread seriously. Trolling efforts have really gotten weak around here.

    Stick with the Under The Bridge Tour.
