In today’s PGW Daily, the Web.com Finals are finished, Joost Luiten shows how to celebrate a win, and Colt Knost wins the Twitter exchange game.
A large field of Web.com and PGA Tour players competed at the DAP Open, the first event of the four-tournament finals. The top 25 in the standings after the finals will earn their PGA Tour card for next season.
The DAP was won by Bryson DeChambeau, the 22-year-old who made headlines when he finished T4 at the RBC Heritage, his first event as a pro. He did not do well enough for the rest of the season to earn his card, but after winning the DAP (his first Web.com event), he has guaranteed that he will be on the PGA Tour next season. He came out victorious in a four-man playoff.
Notables from the DAP:
T2 Andres Gonzales
T6 Scott Stallings, Rory Sabbatini, Will MacKenzie, D.A. Points
T16 Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano, John Peterson
T16 Stuart Appleby
T22 Chesson Hadley, Andrew Landry
T28 Andrew ‘Beef’ Johnston
T33 Brian Campbell
T39 K.T. Kim, Erik Compton
T50 Brian Gay
CUT Camilo Villegas, Hiroshi Iwata. Wesley Bryan, Andres Romero, Jonathan Byrd, Brendon de Jonge, Luke Guthrie,

Driving irons do not get as much press as they should (unless you’re Ariya Jutanugarn), but this utility iron from Cobra was used by DAP Winner Bryson DeChambeau.
Another #CobraKING takes the throne.
