The Web.com Tour regular season is a third over (8 of 24 events), and a streak has just begun of 20 tournaments in 20 weeks through the conclusion of the Finals on Labor Day. They’ve switched to points this year; the first 23 events have the standard FedEx Cup distribution (500 to the winner), while the final regular-season event gets the major distribution (600), and the Finals events offer twice the points of a regular event (1000).
Maybe it’s because of the new distributions that the top of the standings have been very volatile so far. Tyler McCumber, who hasn’t won a tournament, rocketed from 10th to 1st by tying for third yesterday. Fellow non-winners Zhang Xinjun and Scottie Scheffler are 2nd and 3rd, but the eight winners take up spots 4-11.
The rest of the season should be exciting (as always!)
