Paul Barjon won the no-cut, 72-hole Korn Ferry Tour Championship on Sunday and now he’s getting a promotion.
In fact, he’s one of 30 golfers who locked up a 2024 PGA Tour card after the conclusion of the final KFT event of 2023.
Barjon shot 72-70-64-68 at Victoria National Golf Club in Newburgh, Indiana, to finish at 14 under and win by three shots over Fabian Gomez. Joe Highsmith and Mac Meissner tied for third at 10 under.
The KFT Championship was the 26th and final event of the 2023 season. Heading into the finale, 16 cards had already been locked up but there was intense battle for the remaining 14.
Barjon was among those chasing one of those 14 spots, as he started the week at No. 45 but his victory vaulted him all the way to No. 8.
Players who finished Nos. 31-60 on the KFT points list have earned exemptions to Final Stage of PGA Tour Q-School, where the top five finishers and ties will earn their 2024 PGA Tour card.
