SAVANNAH, Georgia – 2019 New Jersey Open Champion Chris Gotterup was on a roll at Korn Ferry Tour Q-School this week, competing against some of the most talented in the sport. After an action-packed four days of golf, Gotterup earned himself 12 guaranteed starts through the 2023 season.

His stellar 7-under par 64 third round set him apart from the rest of the pack, landing him in a share for second heading into the final round. In the final round, Gotterup got off to a hot start, carding birdies on five of his first six holes, lifting him into the lead. He proceeded to produce a solid back nine, but a double bogey on No. 15 dropped him back two places in a tie for third.

Finishers 2-10 and ties earned 12 guaranteed starts on the 2023 Korn Ferry Tour. Medalist, Bo Hoag earned fully exempt status for the 2023 season.


After completing his first four years of college at Rutgers University, Gotterup went on to have a standout fifth year at Oklahoma where he received the Fred Haskins Award as the top collegiate golfer in the United States. Following graduation, Gotterup turned pro and made six cuts in his eight start on the PGA Tour. His best finish was at the John Deere Classic where he finished T4.
