The Web.com Tour Championship is part of the newly created four-event Web.com Tour Finals, and the culminating event of the 2013 Web.com Tour season. All PGA TOUR cards will be finalized at the Web.com Tour Championship, making the Web.com Tour the path to the PGA TOUR.
“We are pleased to be one of the Founding Partner sponsors of the 2013 Web.com Tour Championship,” said Tom Manno, General Manager of The Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa in Ponte Vedra Beach. “Our long-standing relationship with TPC Sawgrass and the PGA TOUR is our most valued asset.

The Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa in Ponte Vedra Beach has undertaken a refresh to enhance the timeless appeal of North Florida’s premier golf, spa and beach destination resort, slated to debut in fall 2013. From revamped Presidential and Villa Suites to re-envisioned restaurants and meeting spaces, the resort-wide project will create a distinct sense of place that embraces its heritage as a leading golf destination that wraps leisure and business travelers in upscale sophistication with an inviting edge. As part of the refresh, the resort will debut a new “TPC Connection” -- an eight-passenger golf cart that will transfer guests staying at The Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa directly from the resort’s new Alice & Pete’s Pub to the TPC Sawgrass Clubhouse.
“The Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa is an active member of the local community and the golf community, and will be a huge asset to the Web.com Tour Championship,” said Matt Rapp, Executive Director of the Web.com Tour Championship. “With The Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa as a Founding Partner, we know the tournament will strengthen its connection to local fans, as well as visitors.”
