The landscape of professional golf continues to shift. On Tuesday morning, the PGA Tour sent the following letter to its membership. Here are the key changes coming to the top levels of professional golf:
– The partnership between the PGA Tour and DP World Tour (formerly known as the European Tour) extended until 2035.
– The PGA Tour increases its ownership stake of the Euro Tour from 15% to 40%.
– The Korn Ferry Tour will return to a calendar year schedule like the PGA Tour beginning in 2023.
– The KFT Finals will now be four events with increased purses and points. These events will be just for KFT members. Thirty PGA Tour cards will be awarded (up from 25) from the final KFT points list.
– The top ten on the Euro Tour’s Race to Dubai points list will be awarded PGA Tour cards.
– The top five (plus ties) at PGA Tour Q-school will now get Tour cards, beginning in 2023.
