PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – The Web.com Tour announced today that Atlantic Beach Country Club, which served as host of the 2016 Web.com Tour Championship, will return to the 2017 calendar as host venue for the Tour’s season-ending event. The tournament, which is the fourth and final event in the annual Web.com Tour Finals, will be held the week of , with Wolfson Children’s Hospital remaining in place as the tournament’s primary charitable beneficiary.
Golf is the funniest of games, and Canadian Mackenzie Hughes’ rise from the brink of Q-School to PGA TOUR winner in the span of five months is the latest example of the sport’s fickleness.
Hughes, who captured the Web.com Tour’s Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper in August, won The RSM Classic on the PGA TOUR in five-man playoff early Monday morning from Sea Island, Georgia.
ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. – Wesley Bryan of Augusta, Georgia was named 2016 Web.com Tour Player of the Year in a vote of his fellow competitors, it was announced Wednesday by PGA TOUR Commissioner Tim Finchem and Web.com Tour President Bill Calfee.
BROOKSVILLE, Fla. – George Bryan is playing Second Stage for the first time, but he is no stranger to the rigors of this pivotal test in the middle of the Web.com Tour Qualifying Tournament, with a Web.com Tour card for next season on the line.
Far from it, in fact. He caddied for his brother Wesley at last year’s Second Stage, where Wesley began the final round on the outside looking in, needing to shoot 2 under to advance to Final Stage and secure a Web.com Tour card for the first time.
Wesley shot 67, advanced, and the rest is history. He earned strong status at Final Stage, won the 2016 money list with three victories, and is now a PGA TOUR rookie.
