Endycott Claims Title in PGA Tour School by Four Strokes Over Crowe

Harrison Endycott of Australia missed the cut in 20 events on the PGA Tour in 2023, but not this time.

The 27-year-old Endycott closed with a three-under-par 67 to beat Trent Crowe by four strokes in the PGA Tour Q-School Finals Presented by Korn Ferry on Dye’s Valley Course at Sawgrass Country Club in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.

The final round was washed out by a huge rainstorm on Sunday and postponed until Monday.

“I’m very proud of myself,” said Endycott, whose only previous pro victory came in the 2022 Huntsville Championship on the Korn Ferry Tour. “It’s funny, but when you have a bit of a tough year, and you have conditional status, you kind of look at it a little bit like a disappointing year.

“But now with a win, what do I look at? Is it a good year or a tough year? No, there are lots of positives. I’m looking forward to a fresh start to the season on the PGA Tour again.”

Endycott made three birdies on the back nine in the final round to stay out in front and posted a 72-hole score of 15-under-par 265, while Crowe had three straight birdies on the back nine in another 67, and Blaine Hale Jr. had four birdies in a 71 and was six down in solo third.

Raul Pereda of Mexico made three birdies on the back nine in a 69 and finished seven back in a tie for fourth with Hayden Springer, who made three birdies on the front nine in another 69.

The top five players earned unconditional status on the PGA Tour for next season, while the next 40 and ties have full status on the Korn Ferry Tour in 2024.

Satoshi Kodaira of Japan, who has won 10 times as a pro including the 2018 RBC Heritage on the PGA Tour, made four birdies on the front nine and was eight shots behind in solo seventh, while Doc Redman claimed the last of his five birdies on the final hole for a 66 and wound nine back in a tie for eighth with Patrick Cover, who eagled the 16th hole in a 68, and Danny Walker, who birdied No. 18 for a 70.

Kramer Hickok birdied two of the last three holes to cap a 66 and finished 10 strokes down in a tie for 10th with Roberto Diaz of Mexico, who had four birdies on the front nine in a 67, Fred Biondi of Brazil, who birdied three of the first seven holes en route to a 68, and Spencer Levin of Sacramento and UCLA, who began the final round in third place cut struggled to a 73.
