Web.com Tour Champ’ship: For 25, a dream came true

Published

on

Golf fans got to see reality television at its best on Sunday at the Web.com Tour Championship at the TPC at Craig Ranch in McKinney, Texas. When the week started, all 60 players in the field had an opportunity to finish within the top 25 on the money list and earn their card for the 2013 PGA Tour season.

No player took more advantage of his opportunity than Justin Bolli. Bolli started the week at No. 44 on the money list and needed a victory to insure himself a spot on the PGA TOUR next year. Bolli started the final round two back but ran the table on Sunday shooting 65 for a two-stroke victory.

The victory moved Bolli from No. 44 to No. 9 on the final money list.

“I can’t say I expected it but it was just one of those days where everything was going my way,” Bolli said. “I was in the zone and stayed out of my own way which was really nice.”

Adam Hadwin missed out on making the PGA Tour in gut wrenching fashion, as a meaningless birdie for James Hahn in the final group on the last hole moved Hadwin out of the top 25.

Hahn started the day in a tie for the lead with Justin Hicks but could only muster a 2-under 69 to finish in second. Hicks shot a round of even-par 70 but earned his card for next year finishing the season in 11th place.

Much of the early final round coverage centered on Camilo Benedetti, who hovered around 25th for much of the day. Benedetti looked to be well on his way to earning his card before hooking his driver into the water down the left hand side of the drivable 14th hole.

At the final hole, the cameras caught Benedetti’s hands shaking as he put down his ball and picked up his ball marker while lining up a three footer for birdie. He made the putt but it wasn’t to be as Benedetti finished the year in 26th place, a paltry $940 away from his Tour card..

Morgan Hoffman had the round of the day, shooting 64 to move up the round leader board and finish the Tour Championship in 3rd place. Hoffman, along with Bolli and Doug Labelle II, were the only three players starting outside the top 25 beginning the week to earn their cards.

Hudson Swafford, Joseph Bramlett, and Benedetti had the dubious distinction of being the only players to drop out of the final 25, leaving where they will play in 2013 in doubt. All three will have full exempt status on the Web.Com Tour but will likely look to Q-School for a second chance at earning their card.

The PGA Tour announced this week that the Valley Course at TPC at Sawgrass will host the fourth and final event of the 2013 Web.com Tour Finals.

Next year’s Tour Championship will finalize the 50 players earning eligibility on the PGA Tour for the 2013-2014 season.  The top 25 leading money winners on the Web.Com Tour and top 25 money winners from the four events in the Tour Finals will earn their cards. The leading money winner during the regular season and the player who earns the most during the Tour Finals will be fully exempt and guaranteed a spot in PGA TOUR events.

10 interesting photos from Tuesday at the Zurich Classic

Published

on

GolfWRX is live from the 2018 Zurich Classic at TPC Louisiana, where, among other things, a giant three-legged crocodile roams.

Now in it’s second year, the tournament’s unique two-man team format has attracted a wealth of top talent, including 10 of the top 14 golfers in the OWGR. We’re on the scene snapping bag pictures and have five galleries from TPC Louisiana’s range Tuesday. We also have a look inside Ryan Ruffels bag, a peek at Jimmy Walker’s putter, a look in Brooks Koepka’s bag, and more!

Let’s dig in.

Well, this certainly is interesting, Xinjun Zhang. Not sure about the context, but not something you traditionally see on a PGA Tour driving range…

Hard not to love Ryan Ruffels’ 009M

Look’s like Michael Greller is enjoying some well-earned relaxation

Ryan Palmer boldly going where few Tour pros dare to: serif font

Roman numeral loft stamping? Savage grind? We like your style, Bud Cauley

Is this a new Wilson Staff PMP wedge prototype or a one-off thing for Ricky Barnes?

Finally, Whitney comes to a wedge

Ham & egg!
