PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. — Chesson Hadley of Raleigh had to settle for a victory Sunday in the Web.com Tour Championship in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.
Hadley closed with a 1-under 69 for a two-shot victory in the fourth and final event of the series that determine PGA Tour cards. But a late bogey by Scott Gardiner kept Hadley from winning the special money list and getting full status on the PGA Tour and a spot in The Players Championship next year.
This was a day for plenty of winners.
John Peterson wound up winning the special money list. And perhaps the biggest winner was Lee Williams. Needing a birdie on the 18th hole of the Valley Course on the TPC Sawgrass, he rolled in a 55-foot over a ridge and into the cup to earn a tour card.
