Davis Thompson will be the newest University of Georgia golfer to join the PGA Tour, the 16th member of UGA golf coach Chris Haack’s program to earn a PGA Tour card.
From Steven Colquitt, UGA Sports Communications…
Thompson, who completed his collegiate career in 2021, improved to seventh on the Korn Ferry Tour’s points list on Sunday. The top 25 at season’s end will earn 2022-23 PGA Tour cards, and Thompson has crossed the fail-safe points threshold with four regular-season events remaining.
Thompson won the REX Hospital Open last month and has four top-10s in 16 starts.
The Korn Ferry Tour schedule resumes July 14-17 with the Memorial Health Championship presented by LRS in Springfield, Ill.
Georgia head coach Chris Haack has produced 16 golfers, including Thompson, who have combined for 44 PGA Tour and 24 Korn Ferry Tour victories. Bubba Watson, Harris English, Chris Kirk, Kevin Kisner, Brian Harman, Russell Henley, Hudson Swafford, Brendon Todd, Keith Mitchell, Sepp Straka, and Ryuji Imada are Haack’s proteges with PGA Tour wins.
