“We congratulate the Class of 2014 graduates and wish all 50 much success on the PGA TOUR in 2014-15,” said Web.com Tour president Bill Calfee. “It is an excellent group, 24 of whom will be first-time members of the PGA TOUR. We know they will enhance the Web.com Tour tradition of having impact on the PGA TOUR and increase the 391 alumni wins that have already been collected on TOUR by the likes of 2013 graduates Chesson Hadley, Brendon Todd and Seung-Yul Noh.”
The 50 cards were earned by players who competed on the Web.com Tour, PGA TOUR or a combination of both tours this past year. The Web.com Tour season consisted of 21 Regular Season events, which ended last month and identified the first 25 cards based on earnings. The second set of 25 cards was available in the four-event Web.com Tour Finals that concluded today. The Finals featured the top-75 Regular Season money winners off the Web.com Tour and Nos. 126-200 from the PGA TOUR’s FedExCup points list (including non-members and medicals, and excluding those who already had PGA TOUR exemptions).
For Priority Ranking purposes, the players are merged, with those who earned 2014-15 PGA TOUR cards via the Regular Season being seeded with odd numbers based on their cumulative Regular Season / Finals earnings (3, 5, 7…45, 47, 49) and the second set of 25 being seeded with even numbers (4, 6, 8…46, 48, 50) based on their earnings in the four Finals events only. The respective leading money winners received No. 1 seeds.
This is only the second year in which all 50 PGA TOUR cards came through the Web.com Tour. Prior to 2013, 25 cards were available through the Web.com Tour and another 25 through the PGA TOUR Qualifying Tournament. The PGA TOUR Qualifying Tournament was replaced by the Web.com Tour Qualifying Tournament, which feeds all of its Final Stage participants to the Web.com Tour.
The season culminated today with Derek Fathauer capturing the Web.com Tour Championship by one shot over Utah’s Zac Blair and two over Jason Gore. The Championship was held at Dye’s Valley course at TPC Sawgrass, which is home base for the PGA TOUR.
