Expert picks: Web.com Tour Finals Expert Projected Champion Explanation Jeff Shain Ben
Came on a little too late to catch Michael Putnam for the Web.com Tour money title, but led the circuit in scoring average and the all-around. Seems to fare better on tougher layouts, which should be to his advantage in the Finals.
Sean Martin John Peterson He came within one shot of earning a PGA TOUR card for 2013-14. His steady play this season will pay off in the biggest events. Anne Detlefsen Jamie
The 2010 Web.com Tour Player of the Year showed he was back when he went T7-Win-T6 in a three-start stretch to break into the 25. He's got the game to finish his year on top. Bryan Mullen Chesson
Hadley enters the Finals No. 3 on the money list and won the Rex Hospital Open in late June. He also have four, top-six finishes and won't flinch when the pressure mounts.
Chris Dunham David Mathis Guess this is kind of going out on a limb taking a guy who finished 40 spots out of the FedExCup Playoffs on the PGA TOUR. Mathis had 11 missed cuts and one top-60 finish in his first 17 starts this year but made six of his last seven cuts this year including a T5 at the Reno-Tahoe Open. He's already won once at the TPC Sawgrass Valley course when he desperately needed to and I can see him putting together a few good weeks with an exclamation point at Dye's Valley to secure 2013-14 TOUR status.
