CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – With five top-10 finishes on the PGATour this season, most recently a seventh-place showing at the Travelers Championship, former UVA golfer Denny McCarthy has grabbed a lot of attention on this year’s Tour. It’s looking like he will have some familiar faces join him next season.

Following Sunday’s win at the Korn Ferry Tour’s Compliance Solutions Championship in Norman, Okla., former Virginia golfer Jimmy Stanger jumped up to fifth place on that tour’s points list. With 11 events left on the Korn Ferry Tour schedule, Stanger is in great shape to be one of 30 players to secure a PGATour card at season’s end.

Currently sitting atop that points standings is former Cavalier Ben Kohles, who has two Korn Ferry Tour victories this year and two other top-10 outings.

Stanger’s win in Oklahoma was a long time coming. The event was his 120th on the Korn Ferry Tour. He shot 22-under 266 to claim the win with a birdie on the final hole.

He led the field with just two bogeys through 72 holes at the Compliance Solutions Championship and didn’t have any during Sunday’s final round.

Through 120 Korn Ferry Tour events, Stanger has come runner-up twice and third twice. Stanger came into the tournament just inside the top-30 (29th place) on the Korn Ferry Tour Points List, which is the ranking needed in order to secure a PGA Tour card.

With Sunday’s win, Stanger is now fifth on the list and is in a great position with 11 events left in the season. He also earned $180,000 of the $1,000,000 prize purse with the win.

Stanger’s enjoyed a successful Korn Ferry Tour career since earning membership ahead of the 2018 season. He posted finishes of 78th, 41st, 50th, and 40th in the Korn Ferry Tour standings. But he was never able to break through with a win until Sunday.

“I can’t put it into words, I’m so beyond thankful,” Stanger said.
