ALKER LOOKING TO MAKE IT A TRIO ON THE PGA TOUR

15/08/2019

Steve Alker is looking to get off to a hot start on the Korn Ferry Tour finals series in his quest to join Danny Lee and Tim Wilkinson on the PGA Tour.

Alker tees it up in the first tournament of The Finals series at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship in Ohio, starting in 49th position in The Finals points race.

With the first lot of Korn Ferry Tour graduates already decided, Alker can still be one of the 50 people who earn PGA Tour cards for next year.

The 25 graduates from The 25 will be re-ranked through The Finals series, and another 25 PGA Tour cards will be given out to the next 25 players who qualify through The Finals 25.

Alker tees off at 6.13 tomorrow morning.

Having already earned his PGA Tour card through The 25, Wilkinson is also playing in this week’s event on the Korn Ferry Tour as he looks to improve his playing status for next year.

Wilkinson will start the week in 24th position in The 25, with the aspirations of improving his ranking to improve his playing rights on the PGA Tour for next year.

Wilkinson tees off at 5.29am.

Josh Geary is making the jump up to European Tour this week as he pegs it up in the D+D Real Czech Masters in Prague.

Geary is looking to improve his Challenge Tour Order of Merit ranking as he looks to sew up a European Tour card for next year, and what better way to do it with a start on Europe’s main tour.

He’s sitting in 37th place on the European Challenge Tour rankings, with the top 15 all earning status on the European Tour for next year.

Geary tees off at 11.25 tonight.

Michael Campbell also tees it up in Europe this week at the Scottish Senior Open on the Staysure Tour.

His tee time is 9.50 on Friday night.
