MCKINNEY, Texas -- Twenty-five members of the Web.com Tour were awarded 2013 PGA TOUR cards today at the Web.com Tour Championship at TPC Craig Ranch near Dallas based on their season-ending finish on the money list.

Former University of Georgia Bulldog Justin Bolli claimed a two-shot victory over James Hahn at TPC Craig Ranch. Bolli made the second biggest leap in Tour history to earn a card the last week of the season, jumping from 44th to 9th. In 2009, Matt Every moved from 49th to 10th when he won the Championship.

Two other players who began the week outside the top 25 in earnings secured their PGA TOUR cards -- Morgan Hoffmann (31st to 19th) and Doug LaBelle II (26th to 24th). The week's casualties were Camilo Benedetti (25th to 26th), Hudson Swafford (23rd to 27th) and Joseph Bramlett (24th to 28th).

Jim Herman hung on to grab the 25th and final spot by just $940 over Camilo Benedetti.

Eight of the top-10 graduates will be first-time members of the PGA TOUR, and 15 in all.

Casey Wittenberg captured the money title with earnings of $433,453. The 27-year-old from Memphis, Tenn. becomes fully exempt on the PGA TOUR in 2013 and receives an invitation to THE PLAYERS Championship in May.
