·2 min read

On Monday the final stage of Korn Ferry Tour Qualifying School wrapped up play, with one player earning fully exempt status for the 2022 season, nine earning 12 guaranteed starts and a whopping 39 earning eight starts.

Zack Fischer, the 32-year-old Texas grad who missed the cut in his lone start on the KFT last season, made a birdie on his final hole at the Landings Club in Savannah, Georgia, to secure medalist honors by one shot over rookie Jonathan Brightwell. Fischer was one of just four players to shoot in the 60s in all four rounds of the final stage, which was delayed a day by inclement weather.

Joining Brightwell at 13 under were Vincent Norrman and Andre Kozan. Michael Feagles and Sam Stevens finished T-5 at 11 under followed by Grant Hirshman (-10), Andrew Yun (-9), Conner Godsey (-7) and Tain Lee (-6). All will have 12 starts next season.
