The success of the PGA Tour lies in the compelling storylines of the golfers’ individual quests for achievement—making the tournament cut, winning a tournament, qualifying for the FedEx Cup Playoffs, and the ultimate challenge of making it onto the Tour, where victory is often determined by a single stroke.
While some golfers make the cut, others miss it. Making the Cut: Life Inside the PGA Tour System, written by John A. Fortunato, Ph.D., documents the stories of golfers on both sides of the dividing line. It explains the complex qualification system of the PGA Tour and depicts a series of compelling stories about professional golfers and their personal experiences and challenges.
Based on interviews with more than 20 professional golfers—including multiple-tournament winners Xander Schauffele, Kevin Kisner, and Jim Herman—Making the Cut: Life Inside the PGA Tour System provides new insight into the PGA Tour system, the events affecting tournament outcomes, and the career-changing opportunities that result.
