TPC Sawgrass Valley to host '13 Web.com finale
The PGA Tour has announced that the Dye’s Valley course at TPC Sawgrass will host the final event of next year’s Web.com Tour Finals, which will debut in 2013. The Web.com Tour Championship will be played Sept. 26-29, and is the final event in the four-tournament series.
The Dye’s Valley course, located at PGA Tour headquarters in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., hosted the Winn-Dixie Jacksonville Open from 2010 through 2012. In 2011, it produced the highest winning score among the 26 tournaments on the Web.com schedule that year.
The Web.com Tour Championship will finalize the 50 players who earn PGA Tour playing privileges for the 2013-14 season and their eligibility positions under the Tour’s new qualifying system, which makes the Web.com Tour the pathway to the PGA Tour.
“The new Web.com Tour Finals will create a unique and exciting four-week finale to the Web.com Tour season, beginning in 2013, with everything playing out at the last event at TPC Sawgrass,” said PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem. “Hosting the culminating Finals event at the home of the PGA Tour and in Web.com’s hometown of Jacksonville will be a perfect way to conclude the first year of the Web.com Tour Finals.”
The rest of the Web.com Tour Finals lineup includes the Hotel Fitness Championship in Fort Wayne, Ind., (Aug. 29-Sept. 1), the Chiquita Classic in Charlotte, N.C. (Sept. 5-8) and the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship in Columbus, Ohio (Sept. 12-15).
