The Web.com Tour presses on with this week's playing of the Price Cutter Charity Championship Presented by Dr. Pepper, and the biggest question surrounding the Web.com Tour is ... can anybody slow down Ben Kohles?


Kohles, who has been a pro for all of two weeks, has won the last two Web.com Tour tournaments and has risen to No. 2 on the money list.

This week's stop is at Highland Springs Country Club in Springfield, Mo. The purse totals $625,000, with $112,500 going to the winner.

If Kolhes can win this week, he secures an immediate spot on the PGA TOUR.

Power Rankings: Price Cutter Charity Championship
Rank   Player Comment
With two victories in two tries since turning professional, there's been nobody hotter in all of golf. In his eight rounds on the Web.com Tour he is 36 under. All he did on Sunday to win again was fire a 62. And to think, the 22-year-old still lives at home in Cary, N.C.
All the South African did on Sunday was shot 60 to race up the leaderboard to finish second to Kohles. He started the day in a tie for 34th, but now he's has his best finish of the season. He's played in seven tournaments this season on the Web.com Tour and has made six cuts but only has one top-10 finish.
He has one win this season already, and he also won Price Cutter Charity Championship in 2006. He won the Utah Championship in July, and since then, has a tie for 14th and a tie for 39th. Heading into this week's tournament, LaBelle is a comfortable 16th on the money list.
The defending champion is back in this year's field after dominating last year's event. He opened the tournament with a 62 and never looked back, as he won by five shots. He's struggled this season with one top 25 finish in 15 tournaments. He missed the cut last week playing in his home state at the Cox Classic.
The Web.com Tour veteran, who played on the PGA TOUR last season, tied for third on Sunday with a final-round 64. He is ranked 13th on the money list heading into this week's tournament. He's been steady with the driver averaging 308.5 yards (11th best on tour) and is hitting plenty of greens in regulation (12th on tour).
