What next for Paul Barjon after the loss of his card on the PGA Tour?

Paul Barjon will not be at the start of the 1st FedEx Cup Playoffs tournament next week but his month of August promises to be busy with 3 decisive tournaments for the rest of his immediate career.

After the loss of his right to play and his 161st place in the FedEx ranking, the future of Paul Barjon is written for the moment in dotted lines.

To try to at least benefit from not too degraded playing rights next year, the former TCU player will be, like the 75 players ranked from 125th to 200th place overall on the PGA Tour, at the start of the 3 last tournaments of the Korn Ferry Tour grouped under the label “Tour Finals”.

They will take place from August 18 to 20 in Idaho, then from August 25 to 28 in Columbus, Ohio and the high point will be the Korn Ferry Tour Championship in Newburgh, Indiana from September 1 to 4.

As in 2021

In this field of players completed by the 75 best players of the Korn Ferry Tour 2022, the promotion circuit of the PGA Tour, he will try to win one of the 25 playing rights at stake. The first 25 promoted from the KFT will be known. in 15 days after the Pinnacle Bank Championship but the three Tour Finals tournaments that follow are of colossal importance with 25 other places at stake.

It will therefore be necessary for Paul Barjon to finish in the first 25 of this mini-championship called The Finals 25. The classification is established by removing the 25 already qualified via the regular season of the Korn Ferry Tour. He will therefore literally have 124 opponents and a goal of finishing at least in the 25, and a fortiori as high as possible to have a better chance of entering a few tournaments in the 2023 season.
