D.A. Points elected not to compete in this week's Web.com Tour Championship due to the concern among his brethren that he'd directly impact the final standings among the 25 chasing PGA TOUR cards for 2014-15.

Points is fully exempt on the PGA TOUR next season for winning the Shell Houston Open in 2013, but he wanted to sneak in some live action during his two-month break since he didn't qualify for the FedExCup Playoffs. However, because the Web.com Tour Finals is a four-event series and not a single tournament, the possibility exists that he could effectively reduce the earnings of a guy on the bubble for the top 25. Of course, his impact wouldn't be any different than any other golfer in the field, but the message is that Points doesn't need the money for a card. "I thought unless I finish in the top 4 or 5 it wouldn’t make a difference, but then guys were on me about it," he said. "I understand that and that’s not why I’m here. I’ve got a lot of friends who are playing in this. I’m not here to keep anybody from getting a job."

Patrick Rodgers makes his third start of the Web.com Tour Finals in the Web.com Tour Championship and is positioned to emerge with a 2014-15 PGA TOUR card.

Rodgers barely earned a spot in the Finals by virtue of his non-member FedExCup points in 2013-14. After missing the cut at the Chiquita Classic, he tied for eight in the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship. The $30,000 he amassed in that start has him 25th on the Web.com Tour Finals money list for players not already possessing TOUR cards for next season. Should he remain inside the top 25, he would enjoy full status on the PGA TOUR next year.

Vaughn Taylor is set to begin the Web.com Tour Championship with a 2014-15 PGA TOUR card in his sights.

Taylor ranks 24th on the Web.com Tour Finals money list for players not already holding a PGA TOUR card for next season. His tie for 10th at the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship last week is a big reason as to why. Should he earn enough money to crack the top 25 on the money list this week, he would return to the PGA TOUR. He is a veteran of 273 PGA TOUR starts and is a two-time winner.

Will Wilcox will tee it up in the Web.com Tour Championship this week with full status on the PGA TOUR for 2014-15 on the line.

The good news for Wilcox is that he already has conditional status locked up by virtue of finishing 142nd in the FedExCup standings during his rookie season on TOUR. With a T19 in the Hotel Fitness Championship and a T12 in the Chiquita Classic ultimately boosting him to 23rd in the Web.com Tour Finals money list for players not already exempt for 2014-15, he is well positioned to solidify his standing for next season.

Carlos Sainz Jr. enters the Web.com Tour Championship on the correct side of the bubble for a 2014-15 PGA TOUR card.

Sainz Jr. is 22nd on the Web.com Tour Finals money list for players without a TOUR card already secured. The top 25 on that list will received their playing privileges for next season. He collected a couple of top-20 finishes to kick off the Finals before missing the cut at the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship last week. Another top 20 this week would likely do the trick.

Anthony Kim remains sidelined indefinitely and may be wrestling with a financial dilemma, according to Sports Illustrated's Alan Shipnuck, who wrote an article on the golfer for the Sept. 22 edition of the magazine.

Shipnuck wove new reporting with quotes from old interviews in an attempt to piece AK's mystery together. Injuries, a philosophical disconnect with the PGA TOUR and the absence of a fit socially among members all contribute to Kim's disappearance, but perhaps the most relevant issue concerns an insurance policy that would reportedly pay him nearly $20 million for never hitting another golf ball in sanctioned competition. None of Kim's quotes are recent, so all of these angles as it relates to Kim's mindset today amounts to aggregate conjecture. If he returns, he'll be armed with a Major Medical Extension with 16 starts to earn $613,550 and retain status, but those numbers are mere formalities when compared to the saga that has so many golf fans and gamers scratching their heads.

Tag Ridings has his sights set on a 2014-15 PGA TOUR card at this week's Web.com Tour Championship.

Ridings ranks 26th on the Web.com Tour Finals money list of players not already fully exempt for the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season. He must crack the top 25 on that list if he is to return to the PGA TOUR for another stint. His T12 at the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship is his second top-25 finish of the Finals. A third would likely be good enough for a coveted card.

Eric Axley has a 2014-15 PGA TOUR card in his sights at the Web.com Tour Championship.

Axley finished 184th in the FedExCup standings, affording him the opportunity to play the Web.com Tour Finals. The top 25 players on the Finals money list not already holding a 2014-15 PGA TOUR card will earn fully exempt status. He is currently 27th on that list, having made each of his three cuts in the Web.com Tour Finals, highlighted by a T12 at the Chiquita Classic.
