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.

Photos from the 2024 PGA Championship

GolfWRX is on site this week at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky, for the PGA Championship.

While we see fewer equipment changes and new gear seeding at major championships, we get a look at custom gear and looks into the bags of players we rarely see, which is just as exciting. In the case of the PGA Championship, this means a look at the gear some of the PGA Professionals who qualified for the tournament will be gaming, and LIV players, such as Jon Rahm and Patrick Reed.

Check out links to all our albums from Valhalla below and check back throughout the week as we continue to update.

GolfWRX is live this week at the Wells Fargo Championship as a field of the world’s best golfers descend upon Charlotte, North Carolina, hoping to tame the beast that is Quail Hollow Club in this Signature Event — only Scottie Scheffler, who is home awaiting the birth of his first child, is absent.

From the grounds at Quail Hollow, we have our usual assortment of general galleries and WITBs — including a look at left-hander Akshay Bhatia’s setup. Among the pullout albums, we have a look inside Cobra’s impressive new tour truck for you to check out. Also featured is a special look at Quail Hollow king, Rory McIlroy.
