It’s all go for January after the R&A and USGA published their finalised Rules of Golf. So what’s coming in? Steve Carroll outlines the changes.
Svoboda Storms To Money List Summit
Andrew Svoboda has soared to the top of the Web.com Tour Finals money list after securing victory in the Chiquita Classic.
The Tour Finals will be played out over four weeks with players all vying for PGA Tour cards for 2014. 25 cards will go to the top 25 on the Web.com Tour's regular season money list, and 25 more will go to the top 25 on the cumulative money list over the four Tour Finals.
Svoboda's, who had already earned a tour card courtesy of his 25th placed finish on the regular season money list, is now playing for position in the priority rankings, which he now sits atop of. He isn't alone there though as for company at he has former Masters champ Trevor Immelman, and Web.com regular season money list winner Michael Putnam.
Svoboda's win this week came in last gasp fashion as he fended off the challenge of Will MacKenzie in a play-off, but last gasp triumphs seems to be becoming something of a speciality.
Svoboda only made the Tour Finals courtesy of a last gasp win at the in the Price Cutter Charity Championship, which he wasn't even planning to take part in.
Svoboda instead was set to fly home after missing the Reno Tahoe Open cut, but the huge cost of the flight that changed his mind.
So Svoboda stayed on, played in Springfield, and won in Springfield. This win secured his place in the finals, and boy will he now be happy it did.
Two wins in a matter of weeks has put Svoboda in a great position to tee it up with a high priority PGA Tour card for next season, and he'll be hoping to continue to make the most of this twist of fate.
