NEWBURGH, Indiana — Tom Lewis carded a final-round 65 to win by five strokes at the Korn Ferry Tour’s season-ending Korn Ferry Tour Championship presented by United Leasing & Finance. Lewis joined 24 other players in earning 2019-20 membership through the Korn Ferry Tour Finals.
The Korn Ferry Tour awarded the first set of 25 PGA TOUR cards for the 2019-20 season at the conclusion of the WinCo Foods Portland Open presented by KraftHeinz in August, with a second set awarded this week after the conclusion of the Finals.
University of Texas alum Scottie Scheffler earned the top spot on both The Finals 25 and the combined points list after a T7 finish. Scheffler becomes the first player to top both lists since Chesson Hadley in 2017.
“It's always been a dream of mine to play on the PGA TOUR,” said Lewis. “Obviously I've achieved some good things on the European Tour and hopefully I can achieve better things on the PGA TOUR. I'm looking forward to the year I've got ahead, just to see what the future brings.”
Four of the 25 players who secured their PGA TOUR cards solely through the Korn Ferry Tour Finals will be rookies during the 2019-20 season. Meet the top 25 here.
