NOTES:
The Web.com Tour travels to Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, this week for the Winn-Dixie Jacksonville Open. The top 43 players on the money list are scheduled to compete. Following this event, the top 60 players on the money list will qualify for next week's Web.com Tour Championship. Jeff Gove is currently in 60th place on the money list, just $343 ahead of two- time U.S. Open champion Lee Janzen. Casey Wittenberg leads the money list by $24,990 over Luke Guthrie.

This tournament will be played at Dye's Valley Course at TPC Sawgrass. The course was designed by Pete Dye, Jerry Pate and Bobby Weed and opened for play in 1987. The 2010 tournament marked the first time that the Web.com Tour played an event at TPC Sawgrass, home of the PGA Tour. Dye's Valley Course is situated adjacent to the world renowned PLAYERS Stadium Course. Dye's Valley hosted the 1988 and 1989 Senior Tournament Players Championship, won by Bill Casper and Orville Moody. It has also staged the Cadillac NFL Golf Classic. Tiger Woods competed in qualifying rounds of the U.S. Amateur Championship at Dye's Valley in 1994 before winning his first of three consecutive U.S. Amateur titles at the PLAYERS Stadium Course.

Champions Tour player Fred Funk is also in the field this week. Funk, who lives close to TPC Sawgrass, has won twice on the Champions Tour this year and is fourth on the money list. He is coming off a win last week at the Greater Hickory Classic at Rock Barn. Duffy Waldorf, who finished second to Funk last week, is also in the field.

Last year, Gavin Coles jumped to the top of the leaderboard with a 64 in the second round and went on to win by one stroke over Jonas Blixt. Coles finished at 6-under-par 274, good for his fifth Web.com Tour title.

Coles will not be on hand to defend his title, as he earned his PGA Tour card for 2012 and is playing at The McGladrey Classic on the PGA Tour. Coles will have to finish the season strong to keep his card for 2013, as he is 179th on the PGA Tour money list. Blixt captured his first PGA Tour title last week at the Frys.com Open and is 35th on the PGA Tour money list.

The Web.com Tour closes out the 2012 season in Texas next week for the Web.com Tour Championship at TPC Craig Ranch in McKinney, where Ken Duke won last year.
