The PGA Tour unveiled PGA Tour University today, a new program designed to give the top Division I senior golfers post-college playing privileges on its various developmental tours, including the Korn Ferry Tour. The concept is like a collegiate draft: The top 5 four-year players on the program’s points list after the NCAA Championship will receive their Korn Ferry Tour cards to compete that summer and potentially parlay those starts into a PGA Tour card, while numbers 6-15 will have the option to play full-time on the Mackenzie Tour in Canada, PGA Tour Latinoamerica or PGA Tour China.
