With the 2023 DP World Tour season now complete, we now know the identity of the ten players who have secured PGA Tour cards for next season.
Introduced ahead of the 2023 season, the ‘Ten Cards initiative’ was designed to give the leading ten players (not already exempt) on the season-ending Race to Dubai rankings playing rights on the US-based circuit for 2024.
The DP World Tour’s equivalent to the FedEx Cup, the 2023 Race to Dubai concluded with the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai, won by Ryder Cup star Nicolai Hojgaard.
Hojgaard’s joy was in stark contrast to the disappointment of his twin brother Rasmus who finished 11th on the PGA Tour card list having been inside the top-10 for most of the season. South African Thriston Lawrence – the winner of the South African Open and BMW International Open this year – finished 12th.
The list of those ‘graduating’ to the PGA Tour is eclectic, featuring golfers from nine different countries. Seven of the ten have won on the DP World Tour this season.
So, without any further ado, here are the lucky ten…
The 10 DP World Tour players who have earned a 2024 PGA Tour card
The 32-year-old Pole, who was controversially overlooked for a place on the European Ryder Cup team this year, won twice on the DP World Tour in 2023.
The big Kiwi sustained the superb form he showed in 2022 into 2023, winning the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.
The Dundee-based French golfer sealed his third victory on the DP World Tour back in January, with a win in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship.
A Ryder Cup winner in 2018, Danish golfer Olesen rediscovered his best form in 2023 and earned his seventh DP World Tour title at the Thailand Classic in February.
Whilst he failed to add to his solitary DP World Tour victory, the 33-year-old Swede has had an exceptional season, posting nine top-10 finishes.
The 25-year-old Finn – the DP World Tour’s ‘Rookie of the Year’ in 2020 – is PGA Tour-bound after a strong season in which he added a second title to his resumé at the Qatar Masters.
Another former ‘Rookie of the Year’, the Scot came within a whisker of winning the lucrative Scottish Open in July and was rewarded for an ultra-consistent season with a Ryder Cup debut in October, where he was one of only three players to go unbeaten.
The second of the Frenchmen to bag a PGA Tour card, 31-year-old Pavon had a strong finish to the season, highlighted by his win in the Spanish Open in October. Fun fact: his father is former French footballer Michel Pavon
The winner of the Magical Kenya Open in March, the 37-year-old Spaniard is the oldest of the ten players to have earned at a PGA Tour card.
Last but by no means least, Japanese 21-year-old Hisatsune won the Open de France in September. Get this – Tiger Woods had already won eight of his 15 majors by the time Ryo was born in September 2002.
