Ever since he posted two top-three finishes within the first 5 tournaments of the Mackenzie Excursion-PGA Excursion Canada season, former BYU golfer Patrick Fishburn has given himself a possibility to advance to the Korn Ferry Excursion in 2020.
Fishburn made it occur Sunday through successful the final of the excursion’s 12 occasions this season. His 21-under-par overall (66-65-64-65) was once excellent for a three-stroke victory within the Canada Lifestyles Championship at London, Ontario.
Fishburn, an Ogden local and Fremont Top Faculty graduate, completed No. five within the season’s Order of Advantage. That’s precisely what he had to earn a place at the Korn Ferry Excursion, which is the main trail to the PGA Excursion within the machine followed in 2013.
“One in every of my giant targets was once to win out right here this 12 months, and I waited till the final one however I used to be ready to drag it off,” Fishburn mentioned. “And clearly, looking to soar into the highest 5 was once a purpose, so I’m overjoyed that I completed my targets.”
Making the highest 5 required some cooperation from Hayden Buckley, who dropped from No. five to No. 6 general through remaining with a 72 and tying for 27th position Sunday. If Buckley had remained within the peak 20 of the match, he would have stored Fishburn from making the 12 months’s peak 5.
Fishburn’s test for $40,500 (Canadian) virtually precisely doubled his winnings for the former 11 occasions. He had made 10 directly cuts ahead of lacking the weekend rounds within the 11th forestall. “Lacking that lower final week may’ve been a excellent factor, to refresh and regroup,” mentioned Fishburn, who will play on this week’s Sand Hole Open in southern Utah.
The Korn Ferry Excursion agenda will get started in January and once more will come with the Utah Championship at Oakridge Nation Membership in Farmington. Because the No. five graduate of the Mackenzie Excursion, Fishburn can attempt to make stronger his precedence score through enjoying within the ultimate level of Korn Ferry Excursion Qualifying in Florida in mid-December. Kyler Dunkle, a former College of Utah golfer, completed 19th within the Order of Advantage. He’s exempted into the second one level of the qualifying match.
