It's final exam time for the Web.com Tour, but only the top 60 on the money list get to take the test.
The Web.com Tour Championship at TPC Craig Ranch in McKinney, Texas will begin Thursday with just 60 players in the field. They'll compete for the most lucrative purse of the season with the winner taking home $180,000 of the $1 million at stake.
What makes the final tournament of the season so big is only the top 25 on the money list on Sunday night will get PGA TOUR cards for the 2013 season. There will be plenty of scrambling on the weekend of this tournament, which doesn't have a cut.
There's a lot on the line as players just inside the top 25 on the money list will try to hold their positions while others are hoping for a hot week to move inside the top 25.
Here are the Power Rankings for this week's Web.com Tour Championship at TPC Craig Ranch:
