2013 Web.com Tour Finals Overview

  • The Web.com Tour is the path for the PGA TOUR’s 50 membership cards for the following season.
  • The 2014 Web.com Tour season consists of 21 Regular Season events, followed by four Finals events.
  • While the top-25 players from the Web.com Tour Regular Season will earn their PGA TOUR cards, their order of priority won’t be determined until the conclusion of the Web.com Tour Finals. They will carry their earnings into the Finals and priority will be established based on the combination of their Regular Season and Finals earnings.
  • Of those players from the Web.com Tour Regular Season top-25 list, the No. 1 player at the conclusion of the Finals based on combined Regular Season and Finals earnings will receive full exemption to the PGA TOUR. So any top-25 player can earn the coveted No. 1 position if he performs well enough in the four Finals events. In addition to his PGA TOUR exemption, the No. 1 player receives an exemption into THE PLAYERS Championship for the upcoming season.
  • A separate money list for the Web.com Tour Finals will determine the final 25 PGA TOUR cards. The player who earns the most money during the four Finals events (if different from the combined money winner) will earn full exemption to the PGA TOUR plus an invitation to THE PLAYERS.
  • The fields for the four Web.com Tour Finals events will combine the top-75 money winners from the Web.com Tour’s Regular Season and Nos. 126-200 from the PGA TOUR’s FedExCup points list (including non-members), plus medical exemptions, at the conclusion of the Wyndham Championship on Aug. 17th.
  • All four will feature $1 million purses.
  • All four will air on Golf Channel in high definition.
  • The 2014-15 PGA TOUR season begins with the Frys.com Open Oct. 9-12.

The Web.com Tour Finals will take place as follows:
