2014 Web.com Tour Finals graduates

This is a list of golf players who graduated from the Web.com Tour Finals in 2014.[1] The top 25 players on the Web.com Tour's regular season money list in 2014 earned their PGA Tour card for 2015. The Finals determined the other 25 players to earn their PGA Tour cards and their priority order.

To determine the initial 2015 PGA Tour priority rank, the top 25 Web.com Tour's regular season players were alternated with the top 25 Web.com Tour Finals players. This priority order was then reshuffled several times during the 2015 season.

Under the new format, Adam Hadwin (Finals and regular season combined earnings) and Derek Fathauer (Finals earnings) were fully exempt for the 2014–15 season and received invitations to The Players Championship. Carlos Ortiz was also fully exempt on the PGA Tour after a three-win season.
