Last Chance to Get a Tour Card

Well, it's finally here. The Tour Championship, the final event of the playoffs, the one that will determine who gets on the PGA Tour and who goes back to the Tour, starts today. It's being played at the Dye’s Valley course at TPC Sawgrass, which some folks say might actually be harder than TPC Sawgrass itself.

I've also printed the rankings for the Top50 entering this final week below. You can find more detailed info on this page.

Rank Player
1 Carlos Ortiz
1 Adam Hadwin
3 Bud Cauley
4 Justin Thomas
5 Colt Knost
6 Andrew Putnam
7 John Peterson
8 Zack Sucher

28 Cameron Percy
29 J.J. Henry
30 Jonathan Randolph
31 Oscar Fraustro
32 Max Homa
33 Tyrone Van Aswegen

35 Hudson Swafford
36 Mark Hubbard
37 Nick Taylor
38 Kyle Reifers

43 Dicky Pride
44 Bill Lunde
T45 Will Wilcox
T45 Carlos Sainz Jr.
47 Roger Sloan
48 Fabian Gomez
49 Vaughn Taylor
50 Patrick Rodgers

You'll note that there are two players at #1. That's because Ortiz won the #1 ranking at the final event of the Tour's regular season and Hadwin is ahead in the 4-event Finals. Both of the top players get a fully-exempt Tour card when this is all over, as well as an invite to the 2015 THE PLAYERS. Ortiz, plus the other 24 players who got their cards in the regular season, are simply trying to improve their status this week. Hadwin's #1 position is still up for grabs until the end of this event.

Meanwhile, #50 is only $703 ahead of #51. Think there's a little pressure this week?

GC's broadcast begins at 2pm ET today, with a rebroadcast at 8pm ET.
