NEWBURGH, Ind. (WFIE) - Justin Suh was crowned the winner of the Korn Ferry Tour Championship presented by United Leasing & Finance on Sunday evening.

Suh’s victory highlighted an exciting, action-packed afternoon out at Victoria National Golf Course. 25 coveted PGA Tour cards were handed out to the top finishers of the Korn Ferry Finals, as well as the top 25 in the Korn Ferry regular season standings.

Suh finished with a score of 21-under par, besting Austin Eckroat by two strokes at 19-under.

14 Sports spoke with the Korn Ferry Tour Championship winner after winning the title and his tour card, along with some of the other golfers who earned their PGA Tour cards this weekend.

“It’s exciting. I mean it was a long day, so I’m tired now, but I’m sure it’ll all sink in when I get back to my hotel room,” Suh said. “We’ve been playing great all year long, so to finish it off with a win, it feels unbelievable. Especially moving on to the PGA Tour, it’s a big confidence boost.”

“Amazing, now that I’m going into my second season, I’m extremely grateful to be on the PGA Tour. Having been there, it’s definitely the place you wanna be,” said Nick Hardy, a University of Illinois graduate who earned his PGA card. “I’m just grateful to be back, and I definitely couldn’t do it without my fiancee. The last few weeks, it’s been stressful I think. A lot of unknowns and a lot of distractions, but I was really good at navigating that.”

“Man, it’s good. It was a lot less stressful playing this golf course this time around, with it already locked up,” said Canadian Michael Gligic, who already had his PGA card entering this weekend. “So, it was nice playing this week, just trying to win and not being too concerned about locking up my card -- it was already locked up.”
