Two players have earned special temporary membership on the PGA Tour following solid results at the PGA Championship this week in Rochester, New York.
Australia's Min Woo Lee and New Zealand's Ryan Fox both needed top finishes this week in order to earn the temporary membership.
Lee, 24, needed at least a solo-27th, while Fox, 36, needed a two-way tie for 59th or better.
Lee shot rounds of 73 and 67 over the first 36 holes at Oak Hill Country Club this past week to make the cut at even par.
He followed it up with a third-round 71 and was in a good position to achieve the temporary membership, which is based on passing a FedEx Cup points threshold, heading into the final round.
Fox, for his part, shot rounds of 68, 73, and 71 for a 2-over par total heading into Sunday.
Both Lee and Fox play on the DP World Tour, where Fox has three career wins and Lee has two.
Fox has played in seven PGA Tour events so far this season, though he withdrew from the RBC Heritage before it began. His best finish so far has been a tie for 14th at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in March.
Lee has played in eight PGA Tour events, with his best finish being a tie for sixth at The Players Championship, also in March.
Pending special temporary PGA Tour membership, both players delivered on Sunday.

And now you can expect to see them over on the PGA Tour more than ever with their newly granted temporary memberships for the remainder of the 2023 season.
