Looking to 2020: Starts on the West Coast Swing
As we approach 2020, I wanted to share what my early season schedule might look like! Qualifying for each event is different, due to a range of field sizes and how many top players play, so what we have listed below is the PGA Tour schedule and my prospects for playing each event.
Each qualification takes into account where I stand on the Korn Ferry Reshuffle (KFT) Category, #16 out of 50. Typically, tournament winners followed by the top finishers in the FedEx Standings in 2019 are the first invited to each event, and then other factors (Monday qualifiers, sponsor exemptions, etc.), followed by the KFT reshuffle determine qualification. Also, each event field is different, ranging from 120-156.
The West Coast swing will take us into mid-February, a seven week stretch in Hawaii, California, and a stop in Arizona. There will be a re-ranking after the Genesis Open for the Florida swing to follow.
Thanks for all your support in 2019. This will be fun!
