Twenty-Five players secure 2016-17 PGA TOUR membership at WinCo Foods Portland Open

Additional 25 cards and positioning at stake in upcoming Tour Finals


NORTH PLAINS, Ore. – The first 25 of 50 available PGA TOUR membership cards for the 2016-17 season were secured on Sunday at the Tour’s final Regular Season event, the WinCo Foods Portland Open presented by Kraft Heinz, contested on the Witch Hollow Course at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club.

Former Michigan State golfer Ryan Brehm, who spent 2014-15 on the Mackenzie Tour – PGA TOUR Canada before earning his Tour card via a T5 finish at the 2015 Qualifying Tournament, won the WinCo Foods Portland Open by one shot over Mark Anderson with a final-round 68 that propelled him from No. 30 to No. 4 on the money list.

Brehm, who briefly worked as an assistant coach and interim head coach at Michigan State following his college golf career, will be a rookie on the 2016-17 PGA TOUR.

An additional 25 cards will be awarded following the conclusion of the four-event Tour Finals, which begin the week of September 5-11 with the inaugural DAP Championship, to be held at Canterbury Golf Club in suburban Cleveland. The second 25 cards will be based on money earned solely in the Finals.

Wesley Bryan, who collected three wins on his way to earning the Three-Victory Promotion to the PGA TOUR earlier this month, earned the most money during the Regular Season ($449,392) and carries his earnings, as do the other 24 card earners, over to the Finals, where positions on the priority ranking list, used to set PGA TOUR fields each week, will be finalized.

Joel Dahmen earned the 25th and final card with $150,267 in earnings this year, which provided a $975 cushion over Xander Schauffele. Dahmen, who won the Order of Merit on the Mackenzie Tour in 2014, was 16th on the money list before falling nine spots with missed cuts over his final three starts of the Regular Season.
