Sydney’s Harrison Endycott has taken an important step towards earning a PGA TOUR card in 2022 after finishing tied for fourth at the Korn Ferry Tour’s Visit Knoxville Open in Tennessee.

Endycott was the only Aussie to finish inside the top 10 on any of the world tours this week and as a result has moved up 16 spots on the Korn Ferry Tour money list to sit 61st and in position to push for a promotion to the PGA TOUR next year.

Fifth in his first start of the year at the Chitimacha Louisiana Open in March, Endycott has logged two further top-20 results before the Knoxville Open, where he sat near the top of the leaderboard from the opening round.

A second consecutive 5-under 65 on Friday and a Saturday 66 had Endycott five shots off the lead heading into the final round, his 2-under 68 not enough to keep pace with winner Greyson Sigg, but good enough to be the best Aussie performer of the week.

Zurich Classic winner Marc Leishman tuned up for this week’s US PGA Championship with a solid performance at the AT&T Byron Nelson in Texas, Min Woo Lee made a strong return to the European Tour with a top-25 finish at the British Masters, while Gabi Ruffels continued her progression towards the LPGA Tour with a tie for 17th at the Symetra Tour’s Symetra Classic in North Carolina.
