  1. ROBERT GAUTNEY: Field of 49 determined for Web.com Tour

    There were a total of 49 players that earned some form of exemption in the Web.com Tour Qualifying Tournament at PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens this week. Local pro Bhavik Patel wasn't one of them, but more on him a bit later.

    After six grueling rounds (and qualifying through First and Second Stage events), the 49 players can look forward to playing on the Web.com Tour in 2015.

    Brad Fritsch of Ottawa, Canada, won medalist honors by shooting 27-under-par for 108 holes of golf. That was seven strokes better than the runner-up, Andrew Landry from Austin, TX and it earned him the only fully exempt status for 2015. Oh, and it made him $25,000 richer which will help for tour expenses.
