Report: KFT Pro Suspended From Tour In Middle Of Event For “Expletive-Filled Outburst”

Alejandro Tosti may have secured his PGA Tour status for next season with his great play on the Korn Ferry Tour this season, but he was unable to finish his latest KFT event.

At the Albertson’s Boise Open, Tosti shot a first-round 67 before he was forced to withdraw. The withdrawal reason was given as a “disciplinary matter.” 

Per PGA Tour policy, the details of the issue and any related disciplinary action will be handled internally. When asked by, a communications official said there would be no additional comment, and that no one would be made available to speak.

However, Ryan French of is reporting that the “disciplinary matter” is actually a suspension. 

Tosti, a 27-year-old pro from Rosario, Argentina, has played in four PGA Tour events since turning pro in 2018, and he has locked up status for 2024 through his ranking this year on the Korn Ferry Tour’s season-long points standings. In that series, he has nine top 10s this season, including a victory earlier this month at the Pinnacle Bank Championship in Omaha, Nebraska, that secured his PGA Tour privileges. 

“Korn Ferry Tour member Alejandro Tosti was withdrawn from the Albertsons Boise Open presented by Chevron following the first round of competition, due to a disciplinary matter,” the Tour said in a statement. “Tosti entered the week ranked fourth on the Korn Ferry Tour Points List. Per PGA Tour policy, the details of the issue and any related disciplinary action will be handled internally.”

French reported further on the suspension.

“The PGA Tour’s highly unusual action was the result of multiple reported incidents that culminated with an expletive-filled outburst on Thursday on his group’s last hole of the day,” French wrote. “The most recent incident came after a backup on the par-4 9th hole at Hillcrest Country Club. After playing partner Kyle Westmoreland hit his tee shot into the trees and took some time to play his next shot, Tosti ‘exploded,’ according to multiple people including fans and volunteers, launching into an expletive-filled outburst over the length of time Westmoreland was taking.

“It occurred in front of players, volunteers and numerous fans, who reported the incident to the Tour. One volunteer described the outburst as ‘really embarrassing.’ Westmoreland declined to comment, saying only, ‘He’s a great player, and I hope he learns from this.’

“After the round, Tour officials approached Tosti, and he was removed from the event before his Friday morning tee time. This incident was the latest of many leading up to the disciplinary action handed out this week. “

Earlier this season, Tosti and five other pros were involved in a rule’s incident involving a shuttle at the Korn Ferry Tour’s Lecom Suncoast Classic. There, the grouping of Tosti, Mason Andersen, and Wilson Furr, and the grouping of Ashton Van Horne, Boo Weekley, and Jared Wolfe took unauthorized shuttle rides from a green to a tee box.

Each golfer was penalized two strokes due to a violation of Model Local Rule G-6. 

The next Korn Ferry Tour event is the Simmons Bank Open in three weeks, and it is unknown whether or not Tosti will participate.
