Another University of Alabama product poised to make the leap, Davis Riley managed to turn no status into a full Korn Ferry Tour card for 2020.
Riley, a Crimson Tide alum, had only one top-10 finish in 2019, but, he missed just five cuts. His steady play all season got him to 70th on the Regular Season Points List.
The 23-year-old will now embark on his first full Korn Ferry Tour season.
Riley was a three-time All-American at Alabama and parlayed that collegiate success playing alongside Korn Ferry Tour alum Robby Shelton into some solid early results as a professional.
Riley played in two PGA TOUR events this fall, making the cut in both.
He finished 18th on the Korn Ferry Tour in scoring average, and if he can continue his solid play again in 2020, he’ll be just another in a long line of Alabama alums to make their mark on the PGA TOUR.
