COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio natives and former Ohio State golfers Daniel Wetterich and Will Grimmer have already secured spots on the Korn Ferry Tour for the 2020 season and this week will compete in the Korn Ferry Tour Q-School finals to find out exactly what their status will be for next year.

By making it through the second stage to the final, all 154 players in the field, including Wetterich and Grimmer, will have the opportunity to play on the Korn Ferry Tour next season but their placing in the final will determine their exemption or conditional status for the season.

The four day 72-hole tournament will traverse the Orange County National Panther Lake Course in Winter Garden, Fla. A 6,800-yard track that with its rolling fairways, native heather and contoured greens, has been recognized as one of the top courses in Orlando.

The potential exemptions/conditional status to be earned are as follows:

  • Winner and ties are exempt for full 2020 season.
  • Players finishing 2nd through 10th (and ties), are exempt until the third periodic re-order* of the 2020 season.
  • Players finishing 11th through 40th (and ties), are exempt until the second periodic re-order* of the 2020 season.
  • Players finishing after the 40th and ties position receive conditional status for the 2020 season.

* Periodic re-ordering happens after roughly every four or five events on the Korn Ferry Tour and re-ranks players based on their current season performance and could change players status depending on how their ranking changes.

Wetterich punched his ticket to the finals finishing tied for 14th at eight-under par in McKinney, Texas at TPC Craig Ranch on Oct. 29-Nov. 1. To get to the second stage, he won his pre-qualifier in Nebraska at the end of August and followed it up with a third-place finish of 20-under par in the first stage of qualifying in North Carolina.

Grimmer earned his spot by shooting nine-under par to finish tied for 13th on the Plantation Preserve Golf Club in Plantation, Fla. on Nov. 5-8. He played at the Woodlands Country Club on Sept. 24-27, finishing tied for 8th at nine-under par to make it to the second stage.
