Australian Harrison Endycott has won the 2023 PGA TOUR Q-School final stage to earn full tour membership for the USPGA Tour 2024 season. Endycott converted a two-stroke 54-hole lead into a four-stroke victory with final-round 3-under 67 at Dye’s Valley. A nervous night’s sleep prior to the final round became two after wild weather and rain delayed the start by 24 hours.
It was a fine front running effort with Endycott sharing the lead after 18 and then 36 holes, before he was the outright 54-hole leader by two strokes.
On his way to victory in the final round, Endycott made five birdies (Nos. 1, 5, 11, 13, 17) against two bogeys (Nos. 4 and 18), finishing the event with just three bogeys across 72 holes (no other player in the field had fewer than six scores of bogey or worse across 72 holes).
The Australian is now the fourth medallist in records dating back to 1985 (Brett Ogle/1992, Neale Smith/1992, Steve Allan/2000).
Endycott earned exemption to Final Stage of PGA TOUR Q-School presented by Korn Ferry by finishing No. 139 on the 2022-23 FedExCup Playoffs & Eligibility Points List as a PGA TOUR rookie. He earned first PGA TOUR card via the 2022 Korn Ferry Tour Points List, finishing No. 21 off the strength of a victory at the HomeTown Lenders Championship in what was his second season on Tour
The win marked his third career appearance at Final Stage of Q-School, having finished T41/2019 and T80/2021 at Final Stage of the Korn Ferry Tour Qualifying Tournament (now PGA TOUR Q-School presented by Korn Ferry).
America’s Trace Crowe finished second, Blaine Hale Jr. finished third and Mexican Raul Pereda and Hayden Springer (US) shared T4 to also earn cards or 2024.
