Justin Suh wins 2022 Korn Ferry Tour Championship but also earns exemptions into Players, U.S. Open in 2023

·1 min read

What a week for Justin Suh.

Suh shot a 64 on Saturday to take the outright lead at 17 under, setting the 54-hole mark at Victoria National in Newburgh, Indiana.

He didn’t go as deep Sunday but didn’t need to, as his final-round 68 gave him the win in the Korn Ferry Tour Championship at 21 under—his first Korn Ferry Tour win—and the No. 1 ranking in the season-long points race.

And to the winner goes the spoils.

The 25-year-old former USC golfer gained full status for the 2022-23 PGA Tour season for winning the points. But wait, that’s not all. Suh is also exempt in the 2023 Players Championship and the 2023 U.S. Open, the first year that perk was on the line at the KFT finals.

The Finals 25 was determined after Sunday’s round, finalizing 25 PGA Tour cards for next season. Here’s a look at who’s heading to the Tour:
