MASTERS CONNECTIONS – This week’s Masters Tournament features 17 first-time invitees. The list includes a past, present and future of sorts for the Web.com Tour. Why? Among this list of first timers are Ted Potter, Jr. (2011 Web.com Tour Grad), Russell Henley (2012 Web.com Tour grad) and John Peterson (2013 Web.com Tour Member). The Web.com Tour proves once again that it is grooming tomorrow’s TOUR champions–and they will be in Evansville at the United Leasing Championship June 24-30! Don’t miss them…tickets go on sale April 15.
The 2013 Web.com Class is off to a good start on the PGA TOUR! Through the first third of 2013 season, five of the grads hold top-50 positions on the FedExCup points list – Russel Henley (10th), Luke Guthrie (28th), Brian Stuard (31st), James Hahn (40th) and David Lingmerth (46th). You may recall that David Lingmerth battled in a 4-hole playoff in last year’s United Leasing Championship.
Luke List is picking up where he left off on the Web.com Tour last year. The 2007 Vanderbilt grad led the Web.com Tour in 2012 in Driving Distance with an average of 324.0 yards. On the PGA TOUR this year (through March 12) List is also No. 1, with a 307.8 average. He leads Nicolas Colsaerts by 6/10th of a yard (307.2).
