Three European Tour pros have realised a dream.

Numerous European Tour hopefuls descended on the Korn Ferry Tour finals this week in a bid to secure a PGA Tour card for the 2021-22 season.

Most notably, Robert MacIntyre, Christiaan Bezuidenhout, Aaron Rai, Matthias Schwab and Lucas Herbert teed it up at the Boise Open, the first event of the three-week Korn Ferry Finals Tour.

• LPGA star calls for slow play crackdown

Unfortunately, MacIntyre, seeking to build on an impressive season, didn’t see the weekend as the Scot missed the cut – an opening round of 74 largely to blame. 

However, it was better news for his fellow European Tour pros as Rai, Schwab and Herbert all finished inside the top-five to claim a coveted PGA Tour card.

“It definitely hasn’t set in yet,” said Rai, making his Korn Ferry Tour debut. “When I was playing, I was obviously just focusing on the win. And the overriding emotion right now is disappointment after finishing that way.

• Nordqvist claims “most special win”

“It was very tough. But to have status on the PGA Tour after the first event of the Finals is incredible really if I take a step back.”

South African Bezuidenhout just missed out as he had to settle for a T10 finish two shots back.

For MacIntyre, his attention will turn to the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship as he continues to hunt down a spot on the PGA Tour for next season.
