MIZUNO’S GREYSON SIGG SECURES PGA TOUR CARD WITH KORN FERRY TOUR VICTORY
GREYSON SIGG WON THE VISIT KNOXVILLE OPEN ON THE KORN FERRY TOUR AND IS NOW ASSURED OF A FULL PGA TOUR CARD
Mizuno staff player Greyson Sigg continued his climb up the professional ranks by claiming his first Korn Ferry Tour win and earning playing rights on the PGA Tour.
26-year-old Greyson Sigg, a former University of Georgia standout, produced a remarkable four-round total score of 20-under-par to win the Visit Knoxville Open on the Korn Ferry Tour. It was his first victory on the circuit.
Sigg opened the week with a course record tying 61 and closed with a 66 at the Donald Ross designed Holston Hills Country Club.
With eight top-10 finishes this season, Sigg has moved to No. 2 in the Korn Ferry Tour points standings. With a season total of 1,934 points, Sigg has crossed the 1,700-point threshold the PGA Tour is using as its fail-safe number for players to finish inside the top 25. Sigg is now certain of a full PGA Tour card.
“It’s hard to do. I mean, you see it every week where guys struggle to get there. Good players who I feel like should be there, aren’t,” said Sigg, who played on the Forme Tour from 2017-2019. “I’ve been doing it my whole life to get there and today I solidified it, so today it’s a pretty special moment for me.”
Sigg is part of a younger looking Mizuno tour team, as the Japanese manufacturer looks to the future. Fellow Mizuno player Keith Mitchell, who finished runner-up in the 2021 Wells Fargo Championship, recently named Sigg as the next most likely Mizuno PGA Tour star and described him as, “the most talented ball striker I have ever seen.”
Mizuno’s Chris Voshall pointed to Sigg’s clear ability to shoot exceptional scores. “Greyson stood out for us with his ability to go really low. He caught our attention by shooting a 59 on the McKenzie Tour,” he said. “That’s not normal and demonstrates a really unique mindset. Most players would see a barrier but that clearly doesn’t exist for Greyson. He has the game to win against anyone on any layout and we’re really excited to see what impact he makes on the PGA Tour.”
In winning the Visit Knoxville Open, Sigg played Mizuno the Mizuno ST200 driver with HZRDUS Smoke Black RDX 60 TX, JPX919 Hot Metal Pro #3 iron and JPX921 Tour irons from #4-PW with Dynamic Gold Ti S400 Black shafts.
Founded in Osaka, Japan in 1906, Mizuno has long held an enviable industry-wide reputation for crafting the finest irons on the market and being at the forefront of technological innovation.
