The PGA Tour awards tickets to the top 10 players on the European Tour, bringing a direct route back to the PGA Tour via the Q-School.
The changes were outlined Tuesday as part of an expanded partnership between the PGA Tour and the European Tour through 2035. As part of the joint venture, the PGA Tour has increased its stake in European Tour Productions from 15% to 40%.
PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan last week outlined major changes to the schedule, which will span a January-August season beginning in 2024 and will average $20 million across eight elite events.
The recent changes give European Tour players immediate access to the PGA Tour. The top 10 players – excluding those already on the PGA Tour like Rory McIlroy and Jon Rahm – will have their cards full for the following year.
The Tour now offers 25 maps to the top players on the Korn Ferry Tour, with an additional 25 maps from a three-tournament Korn Ferry Tour Finals series.
Beginning in 2023, the top 30 players on the Korn Ferry Tour will move to the PGA Tour. The qualifier offers PGA Tour tickets for the top 5 and ties, while everyone else gets access to the Korn Ferry Tour.
