ORLANDO, Fla. – The PGA Tour policy board approved a new measure to help pave the way for top college players to earn status on various tours.

According to a source familiar with the policy board’s meeting Tuesday at Bay Hill, the new program, called PGA Tour University, will grant players status on the Korn Ferry Tour based on a college ranking system. Only seniors who have completed their college eligibility will be considered.

The top 5 eligible players in the ranking will earn Korn Ferry Tour status following the conclusion of the NCAA season.

College players ranked below the top 5 will also have the chance to earn varying degrees of status on the Mackenzie Tour, PGA Tour Canada, PGA Tour Latinoamérica and PGA Tour Series-China based on their ranking.

The policy board gave preliminary approval last fall and the program is scheduled to begin in Summer of 2021.
