Every week can be a life-changing week when you’re a professional golfer. You’re always 72 holes away from a victory that provides more spoils than refrigerators after a hurricane.

But the next three weeks will be crucial for three golfers with Treasure Coast and Space Coast connections: Billy Kennerly (Stuart), Nick Lindheim (Satellite Beach) and Joey Garber (Vero Beach).

The trio qualified for the Korn Ferry Tour Finals, a three-tournament series that determines if they can play next year on the main stage of the PGA Tour or remain on golf’s second tier.

It’s an annual rite, but this year, because of COVID-19, it carries double importance. With many events canceled last year because of the pandemic, Korn Ferry officials decided to freeze the usual promotions/demotions and so players have been compiling points for two seasons.
