WEB.COM TOUR: UPDATE


Patrick Cantlay was stellar at the 2013 Colombia


Championship, carding four birdies and an eagle in the final round to coast to his first Web.com Tour win.


Joe Durant hits a drive on the eighth hole during the third round of the 2013 Colombia Championship at Country Club de Bogotá.

and it opens it up a little more,” Saunders said. “There’s going to be a different mix of players from the PGA TOUR and the Web.com and we’ll all be fighting for the same thing.” Joe Durant, 49, has played nearly


four


tournaments will be comprised of the top 75 players from the Web.com Tour Regular Season money list (the top 25 can improve their standing in the Finals), the PGA TOUR players who fail to qualify for the FedExCup Playoffs (Nos. 126-200 on the points list) and PGA TOUR non- members who would have earned enough FedExCup points to place them between Nos. 126-200.

something that Saunders says will make it even more competitive. “Guys are talking about how that will


all kind of come together in those four events and I’ll be curious to see how it all plays out,” Saunders said. Saunders said that while it’s important

140 tournaments on the Web.com Tour through the years and more than 400 on the PGA TOUR. “I think guys were a little unsure of


how it was going to be when the season opened but now the guys are warming up to it,” Durant said. Durant has been around long enough

Web.com Tour this season and says he is looking forward to the four Finals events. “I know those four events with a $1


million purse in each one of them is going to make it exciting and I think we’ve kind of figured out that if you aren’t in the top 25 at the end of the regular season you still can get one of the next 25 PGA TOUR cards in those events,” Durant said. “That’s just going to add to a little more to our season.” ■
