McKINNEY, Texas – Tag Ridings entered the Web.com Tour Championship ranked No. 51 on the money list.
And with the top 25 earning PGA Tour cards for next season at the event’s conclusion, Ridings will have to win at TPC Craig Ranch in order to obtain a card.
He got off to a good start in achieving that goal, shooting 6-under 65 on Thursday to end the first round in a six-way tie for the lead. Also sharing the lead are Justin Bolli (No. 44 on money list), Cliff Kresge (No. 38), Michael Putnam (No. 30), Justin Hicks (No. 11) and Brad Fritsch (No. 21).
Luke Guthrie and Philip Pettitt Jr. are one shot back after opening-round 66s.
