Web.com Tour Qualifying Structure for Awarding 50 PGA TOUR Cards
Beginning in 2013, the Web.com Tour became The Path to the PGA TOUR by awarding all 50 cards for the following PGA TOUR season.
In 2019, the Web.com Tour moved to a points-based system that mirrors the PGA TOUR's FedExCup. The basic structure will remain the same, with the top-25 points leaders from the Regular Season guaranteed PGA TOUR cards for the following season and 25 additional cards available through the three-tournament Web.com Tour Finals.
The field makeup for the Finals also remains the same: the top-75 money leaders from the Web.com Tour at the end of the Regular Season; PGA TOUR members who are Nos. 126-200 on the FedExCup points list following the Wyndham Championship; and non-members who would have earned enough FedExCup points to place them 126-200 on the official FedExCup points list.
How the Qualifying Structure System Works:
1. While the top-25 players from the Web.com Tour Regular Season will earn their PGA TOUR cards, their order of priority won’t be determined until the conclusion of the Web.com Tour Finals. They will carry their points into the Finals, and priority will be established based on the combination of Regular Season and Finals points.
2. Of those players from the Web.com Tour Regular Season top-25 list, the No. 1 player at the conclusion of the Finals based on combined Regular Season and Finals points will receive full exempt status to the PGA TOUR. So any top-25 player can earn the coveted No. 1 position if he performs well enough in the three Finals events. In addition to his PGA TOUR exemption, the No. 1 player receives an exemption into THE PLAYERS Championship for the upcoming season.
A separate points list for the Web.com Tour Finals will determine the final 25 PGA TOUR cards. The player who earns the most money during the three Finals events (if different from the combined money winner) will earn full exemption to the PGA TOUR plus an invitation to THE PLAYERS.
3. The ordering of all 50 players after the Web.com Tour Finals will be done on an alternating basis, with the top position going to the No. 1 player from the combined Regular Season and Finals points list and the second position going to the leading points winner from the four Web.com Tour Finals. The sequence then alternates between the combined Regular Season and Finals points list….e.g., No. 2 on the Regular Season/Finals points list becomes No. 3 in the ordering, No. 2 on the Finals points list becomes No. 4 in the ordering, and so on through the 25th player on both lists.
1. In 2019, there will be a 24-event Regular Season, from January into August, followed by three events in August/September, played in Columbus, Ohio, Boise, Idaho, and Evansville, Indiana.
2. Introduced in 2013 was the “Web.com Tour Qualifying Tournament”, which feeds players directly to the Web.com Tour. The Final Stage is conducted in December. There is no longer a PGA TOUR Qualifying Tournament. Pre-Qualifying, First Stage and Second Stage qualifiers precede the Finals and are played around the United States from September into November, setting the Finals' field of approximately 150 players. In 2016, there were more than 1,200 Qualifying Tournament entries.
