With the final 25 PGA Tour cards for the 2022-23 season being handed out upon conclusion of the Korn Ferry Tour Championship, the list of 50 Korn Ferry Tour graduates for the Class of 2022 are set.

Justin Suh, the four-time All-American at USC who turned pro in 2019 and last month clinched one of 25 Tour cards available via the regular-season KFT points race, won Sunday at Victoria National to finish as the top point-getter in combined regular-season and KFT Finals points. The designation earns Suh fully exempt status for his rookie season on Tour, plus spots in The Players and U.S. Open next year.

Will Gordon, who won the Finals opener two weeks ago, was T-26 at the KFT Championship to finish No. 1 in Finals points and also earn fully exempt Tour status as he returns to the Tour after a season on KFT.

Both Suh and Gordon will not be subject to the reshuffle, which will occur within the KFT graduate category five times throughout next season and for the first time following the fall.

Here is the complete initial priority ranking for the 50 KFT grads entering the new PGA Tour season, which begins in two weeks in Napa, California:
