SALT LAKE CITY – Former BYU and Fremont high school alumni Patrick Fishburn has fallen agonizingly short of receiving a PGA Tour card following the conclusion of the Korn Ferry Tour season.

Fishburn, 30, concluded the 2021/22 Korn Ferry Tour Finals 28th in the standings, the top 25 players all received a PGA Tour card. Fishburn needed a top 30 finish in the final event of the season, the Korn Ferry Tour Championship, but concluded in a share of 39th and will not prepare for the 2022/23 Korn Ferry Tour season with aspirations of graduating to the PGA Tour.

Throughout the opening two rounds at the Korn Ferry Tour Championship Fishburn was on track to graduate to the PGA Tour having carded consecutive days of five under-par, 67, rounds.

However, on day three Fishburn let all of his good work throughout the opening two days slip when he carded a 76, four-over-par, round to drop down the standings.

His final round of three-under-par was not enough to lift Fishburn into the top 30. Unfortunately, Fishburn fell two shots short of making a lifelong dream a reality.

Not all is lost, however, Fishburn managed to post his career-best finish at the Utah Championship in 2021/22 when he concluded the tournament in a tie for second. It was his only top 10 finish on the season. Last year Fishburn managed 3 top 10 finishes.

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.

In high school, Fishburn was a talented basketball player and received college scholarship offers to play basketball but ultimately decided that his future belonged to the game of golf.

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.
