  • Priority Ranking Order – see paragraph below on how the 50 cards will be sequenced.

REGULAR SEASON 25

FINALS 25

1 – Carlos Ortiz 1 – Bud Cauley
2 – Adam Hadwin 2 – Colt Knost
3 – Justin Thomas 3 – John Peterson
4 – Andrew Putnam 4 – Richard Sterne
5 – Zack Sucher 5 – Tom Hoge
6 – Blayne Barber 6 – Sam Saunders
7 – Tony Finau 7 – Greg Owen
8 – Derek Fathauer 8 – David Lingmerth
9 – Alex Cejka 9 – Whee Kim
10 – Jason Gore 10 – Tom Gillis
11 – Steven Alker 11 – Sean O’Hair
12 – Andres Gonzales 12 – Jim Herman
13 – Jon Curran 13 – Scott Pinckney
14 – Daniel Berger 14 – J.J. Henry
15 – Cameron Percy 15 – Oscar Fraustro
16 – Jonathan Randolph 16 – Tyrone Van Aswegen
17 – Max Homa 17 – Hudson Swafford
18 – Steve Wheatcroft 18 – Nick Taylor
19 – Mark Hubbard 19 – Greg Chalmers
20 – Kyle Reifers 20 – Roberto Castro
21 – Ryan Armour 21 – Dicky Pride
22 – Byron Smith T22 – Will Wilcox
23 – Bill Lunde T22 – Carlos Sainz, Jr.
24 – Roger Sloan 24 – Vaughn Taylor
25 – Fabian Gomez 25 – Patrick Rodgers

 The priority rankings are used to form fields on the PGA TOUR.

The two players who earn the most money on both the combined Web.com Tour Regular Season / Finals money listand the four-event Finals money list will be fully exempt on TOUR in 2014-15 and receive an invitation to the 2015 PLAYERS Championship.

At the conclusion of the Finals, the players will merge, with the 2014 Web.com Tour “Regular Season 25” (left column) being seeded with odd numbers based on their cumulative Regular Season / Finals earnings (3, 5, 7…45, 47, 49) and the “Finals 25” (right column) seeded with even numbers (4, 6, 8…46, 48, 50) based on their earnings in the four Finals events only. The two leading money winners will both be seeded No. 1.

In the event that a player who earned one of the 25 cards via the Regular Season is the leading money winner in the Finals but his combined Regular Season and Finals’ money does not surpass the leading money winner among the 25, that player would improve his position and reap the same benefits of being No. 1 in the Finals (full exempt status, PLAYERS invitation).

With only the Web.com Tour Championship remaining, Patrick Rodgers has a $703 advantage over Tag Ridings for the last available spot on the “Finals 25” list.
