Wofford grad Andrew Novak knew he would have a new mailing address for his job next year even before the final Korn-Ferry Tour event was played.

The former SCGA Amateur champion will play next year on the PGA Tour after finishing in the Top-25 on the Korn-Ferry Tour this season.

He received his PGA Tour card with the other members of “The 25” after the Korn-Ferry Tour event in Omaha on Sunday.

This will be the first trip up to the big Tour for the Raleigh native.

Novak won the 2020 LECOM Suncoast Classic. He then had a hot streak that put him in position to earn his PGA Tour card.

His best effort of the year came when he reeled off five consecutive top-10s from April through May 2021.

Novak finished the season with 10 top -10s. He also finished solo third twice to earn his first PGA TOUR card.

“This is something I’ve been working for since my days at Wofford,” said Novak. “I’m just so blessed to have made it to the pinnacle of my sport and to have achieved another goal of mine. It’s really cool to be the second Wofford golfer to make it to the tour and I’m looking forward to representing the Terriers on tour,” he said.

Novak joins William McGirt as PGA Tour members.

McGirt is currently playing on a medical exemption following a length recovery from a hip injury.

“I hope to see some Wofford shirts out there next year at some of the tour stops,” said the new PGA Tour member.
