Web.com Tour and PGA TOUR Players to Compete for TOUR Cards and Positions
Over Four Events in Fort Wayne, Charlotte, Columbus and Ponte Vedra Beach

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (September 5, 2015) – With the awarding of the first 25 PGA TOUR membership cards for 2015-16 last Sunday at the 21st and final Regular Season event on the 2015 Web.com Tour schedule, attention turns to the 2015 Web.com Tour Finals. The four-tournament series will determine who earns the second set of 25 cards as well as set the priority ranking positions for all 50 card earners.

The Finals will launch Thursday, Sept. 10th with the first round of the Hotel Fitness Championship at one of Indiana’s top golf courses, Sycamore Hills Golf Club, in Fort Wayne.

On Aug. 30th, 25 cards were locked up in Portland by the Regular Season’s 25 leading money winners. Twenty-five more cards will be determined at the Finals based on earnings in the four events. The all-important positioning of players within the Web.com Tour graduates’ category on the PGA TOUR’s eligibility list (assigning of Nos. 1-50) will also be determined.

All 50 card earners will be officially recognized and receive their 2015-16 PGA TOUR membership cards at a ceremony following the Web.com Tour Championship at TPC Sawgrass on Oct. 4th.

2015 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 2015 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 have already earned their PGA TOUR cards, their order of priority won’t be determined until the conclusion of the Web.com Tour Finals on Oct. 4th. They will carry their earnings into the Finals and priority will be established based on their Regular Season and Finals earnings combined.
  • 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 a full exemption to the PGA TOUR. Therefore, any Regular Season 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 Regular Seasons/Finals money winner) will earn a 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. 23rd. Those with existing PGA TOUR exemptions may not compete.
  • All four Finals events will feature $1 million purses.
  • All four will air on Golf Channel in the United States. They will also be available in 192 countries and territories via the PGA TOUR’s international broadcasting operation.
  • The 2015-16 PGA TOUR season begins with the Frys.com Open Oct. 15-18.


The 2015 Web.com Tour Finals will take place as follows:

  • Sept. 10-13 – Hotel Fitness Championship / Sycamore Hills Golf Club / Fort Wayne, Iniana.
  • Sept. 17-20 – Small Business Connection Championship at River Run / River Run Country Club / Davidson, N.C. (Charlotte)
  • Sept. 24-27 – Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship / Ohio State University Golf Club / Scarlet Course Columbus, Ohio
  • Oct. 1-4 – Web.com Tour Championship / TPC Sawgrass / Dye’s Valley Course / Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. (Jacksonville)


About the Web.com Tour
Founded (1990), owned and operated by the PGA TOUR, the Web.Com Tour continues to identify those players who are ready to compete and win on golf’s biggest stage. In 2013, the Web.com Tour became The Path to the PGA TOUR with all 50 available PGA TOUR cards coming through the Web.com Tour and the season culminating at the four-event Web.com Tour Finals. Web.com became the Tour’s umbrella sponsor on June 27, 2012. A 10-year agreement (through 2021) is in place. The Tour is about to complete its 26th year of competition in 2015. Three out of four PGA TOUR members are Web.com Tour alumni. Tour alumni have won 418 PGA TOUR titles, including 21 majors and five PLAYERS Championships. The PGA TOUR, through the efforts of its tours and their tournaments, sponsors, players and volunteers, surpassed $2 billion in charitable giving in Jan. 2014.
