SALT LAKE CITY – Patrick Fishburn is surging towards attaining a PGA Tour card following the opening round of the final Korn Ferry Tour event of the season.

Fishburn began the Korn Ferry Tour Championship ranked 49th in the standings and following his opening round of 67 climbed to 34 in the standings. At the conclusion of the tournament, the top 25 players receive a PGA Tour card.

So far in 2021/22, Fishburn’s best finish came at the Utah Championship when he posted a career-best T2 in his home state. It is his only top 10 finish of the season. Last year, Fishburn managed three top 10 finishes.

Nevertheless, Fishburn’s opening round at Victoria National Golf Club in Indiana consisted of six birdies and just the lone bogey.

The Numbers: Patrick Fishburn

Fishburn averages 323.5 yards off the tee while hitting 71 percent of fairways and 78 percent of greens in regulation.

The putter was on fire for Fishburn throughout the opening round. All but two of his six birdies came following putts of 10 feet or longer. Fishburn looked comfortable on the course and in complete control of his game.

If Fishburn continues his impressive play, he is projected to conclude the season in ninth in the standings and therefore qualifies for the 2022/23 PGA Tour season where he will join the likes of Tony Finau.

Currently, Fishburn finds himself just three shots off the pace entering the second round.

Fishburn turned professional in 2018 following an impressive collegiate career at Bringham Young University. Prior to attending BYU, Fishburn graduated from Fremont High School in Plain City, Utah.

While at BYU, Fishburn concluded his collegiate career with 31 top 20 finishes from 50 events over a three-year span.

During his off-season, Fishburn calls Ogden, Utah home and frequents the Ogden Golf and Country Club where he practices and works on his game.

Tee times and pairings are not yet available ahead of the second round.
