PGA Tour University changes eligibility rules as first LIV Golf event approaches

By Adam Woodard

Greg Norman has said that amateurs would be able to play in his Saudi Arabia-backed LIV Golf Invitational Series, but those in the top 15 of the PGA Tour University Ranking who are considering the rival golf entity may want to think otherwise.

The Tour has previously stated that it “reserves the right to make final determinations regarding a player’s eligibility in PGA Tour University,” and Wednesday Golfweek learned of two amendments, effective immediately.

Players who finish inside the top 15 of the final ranking will be ineligible for PGA Tour University, “and may not accept the performance benefits associated with a top-15 finish (in the current season and subsequent seasons) if such player competes in any professional golf tournament that is not ranked by the Official World Golf Ranking, excluding such events that have been previously approved by the PGA Tour.”

If a player is deemed ineligible or decides not to accept the benefits, they will be offered to the next eligible player in the final ranking. The first LIV Golf Invitational Series event is scheduled for next month, June 9-11, in London. As of now, the LIV Golf events do not offer OWGR points.

The PGA Tour University Ranking is based on results and level of competition. After the 2022 NCAA Men’s Golf National Championship ends June 1, the top‐15 players in the Class of 2022 will earn status on the Korn Ferry Tour or a PGA Tour international tour.
