The 2016 Web.com Tour season has come and gone, and although it came to a somewhat unorthodox conclusion, it was still a season for the books.
We had first-time winners, a three-time winner, veteran winners, American winners, international winners, drama, ecstasy and agony.
We had guys drive thousands of miles, other guys rack up thousands of airline miles, and everyone improving their status on their hotel program of choice.
With the 2016 Web.com Tour season firmly in the rearview, and the 2016-17 PGA TOUR season now underway, the Web.com Tour is proud to announce the following three golfers have been nominated for the 2016 Player of the Year award: Grayson Murray, Wesley Bryan and J.J. Spaun.
Who's your pick for Player of the Year?
2015 Utah Championship Winner and Web Tour Player of the Year, Patton Kizzire Places 2nd at FedEx Cup
Runner up Patton Kizzire may have come up short but - as he did last season with a second place at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open - he has ensured a solid start to his FedExCup tilt. Kizzire won twice on the Web.com Tour in 2015, showing he has the ability to close, but he will no doubt agonize a little over his last seven holes on Sunday.
It wasn’t a Sunday celebration, unbridled, innocent, tear-soaked. It was a formal announcement on a Wednesday from officials that ended the 2016 Web.com Tour season due to Hurricane Matthew.An unfortunate way for an otherwise tremendous, life-changing and exciting season to conclude. But a week later, it’s time for the 2016-17 PGA TOUR season to begin with the Safeway Open in Napa, California.
And with that, there is a fresh crop of Web.com Tour graduates looking to build off the success of the peers who came before them – like Emiliano Grillo and Smylie Kaufman (TOUR winners, both, early last season, and golfers who earned their TOUR spots via the Web.com Tour).
ATLANTIC BEACH, Fla. – It wasn’t the way anyone wanted things to turn out, as the season-ending Web.com Tour Championship was canceled due to the path of Hurricane Matthew, but the 50 PGA TOUR cards awarded via this year’s Regular Season and Finals were finalized on Wednesday afternoon at Atlantic Beach Country Club.
