MCKINNEY, Texas (AP) -- Justin Bolli closed with a 6-under 65 on Sunday to win the Web.com Tour Championship, making him one of three players who moved into the top 25 on the money list to earn a PGA Tour card for next season.

 

Bolli was No. 44 on the money list going into the Web.com Tour's final event of the year. He earned $180,000 to move to No. 9 with his two-shot victory over James Hahn, who birdied the last hole for a 69. The top 25 on the money list earned PGA Tour cards.

 

Hahn was No. 13 and virtually a lock to secure a PGA Tour card going into the last round. But his final hole determined the fate of two players.

 

Adam Hadwin of Canada closed with a 65, getting up-and-down from behind the green on the par-5 18th at the TPC Craig Ranch for one last birdie. He was projected to go from No. 48 to No. 25 on the money list and earn his tour card if he stayed in a three-way tie for second with Hahn and Morgan Hoffman, who closed with a 64.

 

Hahn's second shot into the 18th went well right of the green and onto a cart path. He took a free drop, and then lofted a chip that stopped just inside 3 feet away. Hahn knocked in the short birdie putt to finish in second place by himself. Hadwin, who would have made $74,667 for a three-way tie for second, earned $58,000 for his two-way tie for third. The difference was enough to allow Jim Herman to finish 25th on the money list.

 

Hoffman, who started the year with no status on the Web.com Tour, was No. 31 on the money list and easily cracked the top 25 to graduate to the big leagues. Doug LaBelle was at No. 26 and tied for 13th to move into the top 25.
