The Web.com Tour Championship has been canceled and will not be rescheduled.
This was the last chance for players to earn PGA Tour cards for the new season, but with a major hurricane taking aim at the Florida coast, a mandatory evacuation had been ordered of the beaches east of Jacksonville, Fla.
Having peaked at a category 5 hurricane, it is expected to be category 3 when it hits the north Florida coast, packing winds 111-130 mph.
What does this mean for players?
The top 25 money winners from the regular season had already secured their PGA Tour cards for the 2016-17 season, although their order of priority was still being determined by the Web.com Tour finals.
More significantly, 25 more cards were still at stake via the four-tournament finals. This was to be the last of those four events. As a result, the current top 25 after three events will now receive PGA Tour cards and all priority status will be assigned according to this list. (Scroll down to see list of 25 players below)
The top 25 players on the Web.com Tour money list had already secured their Tour cards.
“I know the players who came here needing a good finish to get their cards are very disappointed,” said Web.com Tour president Bill Calfee. “We’ve never had a situation like this before. The community and the Atlantic Beach Country Club worked very hard to bring this tournament off and it would have been a great week had it not been for the weather.”
These are the 25 players locking down their PGA Tour cards today (*note: No. 1 Grayson Murray was already qualified, so players ranked 2-26 each earned PGA Tour cards.)
