PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – The third of four 2014 Web.com Tour Finals’ events is now complete, with Justin Thomas capturing the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship in Columbus, Ohio, on Sunday. The following is the list of 50 players who make up the priority ranking order for 2014-15 on the PGA TOUR with one event remaining this week.
The Web.com Tour Finals will culminate at the 25th and final event of the 2014 season, the Web.com Tour Championship at the newly renovated Dye’s Valley course at TPC Sawgrass.
The 50 PGA TOUR cards for the upcoming season and the priority ranking order will be finalized when play ends on Sunday at the home of the PGA TOUR. The priority ranking is used to form PGA TOUR fields.
Just $15,736 separates No. 1 Carlos Ortiz and No. 2 Adam Hadwin.
The two players who earn the most money on both the combined Web.com Tour Regular Season / Finals money list and the four-event Finals money list will be fully exempt on TOUR in 2014-15 and receive an invitation to the 2015 PLAYERS Championship.
In the event that a player who earned one of the 25 cards via the Regular Season is the leading money winner in the Finals but his combined Regular Season and Finals’ money does not surpass the leading money winner among the 25, that player would improve his position and reap the same benefits of being No. 1 in the Finals (full exempt status, PLAYERS invitation). Hadwin is on track to earn that promotion.
The competition for the final remaining available card is extremely close, with $703 the margin between No. 50 Patrick Rodgers and No. 51 Tag Ridings.
