Web.com Tour to offer 50 PGA Tour cards
Ponte Vedra Beach, FL (Sports Network) - The PGA Tour announced on Tuesday the details of the qualifying structure that will offer tour cards through the Web.com Tour, starting with the 2013 season.
The Web.com Tour will award 25 PGA Tour cards based on the 2013 Web.com Tour regular-season money list. Cumulative earnings during the Web.com Tour's Finals, which are season-ending tournaments beginning in September, will award the final 25 cards.
Players eligible for the Finals will be the top-75 players on the Web.com Tour money list, golfers who finished 126-200 on the PGA Tour's FedExCup points list and non-members who have earned enough FedExCup points from their performance on tour to place them 126-200 on the official FedExCup points list.
"With the Web.com Tour becoming the pathway to the PGA Tour, it was important to continue rewarding season-long performance on the Web.com Tour," said PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem. "In addition, we wanted to create a system that would award additional PGA Tour cards based on a player's performance in a series of season-ending tournaments. We wanted it to be objective and equitable to all competitors and be easy to understand for players, fans, television viewers, sponsors and the media alike. This structure accomplishes that and will no doubt result in an exciting, compelling conclusion to the Web.com Tour season."
