PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – With the awarding of the first 25 PGA TOUR membership cards for 2015-16 last Sunday at the 21st and final Regular Season event on the 2015 Web.com Tour schedule, attention turns to the 2015 Web.com Tour Finals. The four-tournament series will determine who earns the second set of 25 cards as well as set the priority ranking positions for all 50 card earners.
The Finals will launch Thursday, Sept. 10th with the first round of the Hotel Fitness Championship at one of Indiana’s top golf courses, Sycamore Hills Golf Club, in Fort Wayne.
