On the Road with the Korn Ferry Tour: John Pak at the Vertix Bank Championship in Texas

For easy watching, comfortable galleries and friendly pro golfers, the Korn Ferry Tour is an incredible fan experience. It’s often suggested that the PGA Tour and Korn Ferry Tour could send their respective top 125 off the first on a Thursday and a Korn Ferry pro would win. These (Korn Ferry) guys are good–no doubt about it.

The PGA Tour’s developmental league was in Arlington, Texas this week at the Texas Rangers Golf Club. This Major League Baseball-themed golf course was exploited. Tyson Alexander won the event for a second consecutive year with a score of 22-under despite wind gusts over 25 mph at times.

We caught up with PGA and Korn Ferry Tour rookie John Pak after his second round, and at the time of our conversation he was 7-under par and tied for 30th. He made the cut, made a few bucks with a T66 finish. Pak won every award there is to win as a senior at Florida State University and is playing a mesh schedule this season. He has full status on the Korn Ferry Tour and because of an elite college career–he receives a few select exemptions to select PGA Tour events such as the Arnold Palmer Invitational, Charles Schwab Challenge and the Memorial Tournament.

The Korn Ferry Tour is off for the weekend of April 21-24 while the PGA Tour is in New Orleans. The Korn Ferry Tour resumes April 28 at the Huntsville Championship in Huntsville, Alabama.
