The top-10 players in the Korn Ferry Tour points standings at the conclusion of the 2020 Korn Ferry Tour Championship presented by United Leasing & Finance earned entry into the PGA TOUR’s additional events (also known as opposite-field events) during the 2020-21 season.
The top-five players (not otherwise exempt) on a three-tournament points list encompassing the 2020 Albertsons Boise Open, Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship and Korn Ferry Tour Championship received exemptions into the 2020 U.S. Open.
