Seedless: Tour Finals will determine status on money earned

Since 2007, the Tour has offered PGA Tour cards to the top 25 on their season-ending money list. That will remain true as a three-tournament series combining and PGA Tour players is set to begin in September 2013.

The PGA Tour announced Tuesday how it intends to dole out 50 PGA Tour cards offered in what has been dubbed the Tour Finals.

The top 25 finishers on the Tour money list before the series begins will be offered PGA Tour cards. That will leave another 25 cards up for grabs in the three-event series with a mixed field from both tours.

The top 75 on the regular season money list and Nos. 126-200 on the FedEx Cup regular season points list, as well as non-members whose performance would have earned them a spot based on FedEx Cup points, will combine for the three events. All are expected to offer purses of $1 million.

There will be no seeding ahead of the series; all players will start at zero. Money earned in the three events will determine the 25 PGA Tour cards for those who did not finish in the top 25 on the Tour regular season money list. The final money list will determine the priority order for all 50 players to earn cards.

The leading money winners from the Tour regular season and the finals series will be fully exempt on the PGA Tour and earn an invitation to The Players Championship.

The 2013-14 season for both the PGA and Tours will begin in October.
