For the Korn Ferry, after Q School, there is a priority list of over 200 golfers that are eligible to play. This year, Taylor Pendrith was roughly in the middle of the list based on his Q School performance and finishing in the Top 5 of the Mackenzie Tour last year. Chase Johnson was near the bottom of that list and likely wouldn’t get any opportunities to play if not for the pandemic keeping many foreign golfers off the Korn Ferry Tour. During the year, they do reordering based on how the golfers actually perform and, hence, if you are doing well, you will get into tournaments and, if you are not, you find yourself going further down the list.

In Taylor Pendrith’s case, getting off to a good (not necessarily great, but good) start is important because you can find yourself too far down the list to get into tournaments by the end of the year. He did and will keep playing. In Chase Johnson’s case, he has to wait until the next reorder (they don’t do this after every tournament) and he’ll be far enough up the list to get into whatever Korn Ferry tournament he wants to. But, for now, he needs to wait. So, after the 2nd place finish, he got into the next tournament based on finishing in the Top 25 (I think that’s the number), the previous week, but, for this week, he was too far down the list and had to try to Monday qualify.

In summary, once they reorder again, Johnson will get to play as much as he wants to for the rest of the year.

great thanks for the information

Place this one under "Wow, just wow."

Taylor Pendrith finished tied for second today. He started the day tied for 20th, way off the pace, but played great golf and drifted up the scoreboard and the leaders drifted down. The only person having a better day was winner Seth Reeves who shot 7 under to sit in the clubhouse for two hours watching everyone else slip under him. This gives Pendrith his third straight second place finish, which I can't remember anyone doing that (and he finished third the week before that). He is 3rd in the Korn Ferry point rankings with the Top 10 getting some standing on the PGA tour next year.

In doing a little research, I found out that the Top 5 at the time on the Korn Ferry Tour will play at the US Open, so we could have three Kent players (Conners, Hughes and Pendrith) there.

I also saw that Conners and Pendrith spent their week off fishing for barracuda.
