The marathon that has been the 2020/2021 Korn Ferry Tour Season, a forty-six event wrap around schedule due to COVID-19, comes to a close this weekend in Evansville, Indiana at the Korn Ferry Tour Championship Presented by United Leasing which is played on arguably the most difficult course the Tour sees all year at Victoria National Golf Club.
Through the first two rounds, Justin Lower has positioned himself to be in contention for a PGA TOUR card in the final weekend of the season. Lower’s 2020/2021 season has been highlighted by two second place finishes in 2021 and a 4th place at the 2020 Boise Open. The runner-up finishes came to 4-Time PGA TOUR winner Chris Kirk at The King & Bear Classic at World Golf Village and at the BMW Charity Pro-AM to Mito Pereira who notched three wins on the Korn Ferry Tour in the marathon schedule to earn an immediate promotion to the PGA TOUR.
Lower’s start in Evansville, two rounds of two under par 70, position him in a tie for 13th on the Leaderboard. He is tied for second in the field for most birdies made through 36 holes with 14 and is 5th in the field for putts per green in regulation. However three double bogies, two of which have come on the 17th hole have kept him out of the tournament lead. At the mid-way point of the Tour Championship, Lower is projected 26th on the Points List and the Top 25 at week’s end will earn their PGA TOUR membership.
