PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) Rhein Gibson shot a 7-under 63 on Thursday to take a one-stroke lead in the Web.com Tour Finals-ending Web.Com Tour Championship.
The Australian had eight birdies and a bogey on Dye's Valley Course at TPC Sawgrass.
The tournament is the fourth and final event in the series for the top 75 players from the Web.com Tour money list, Nos. 126-200 in the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup standings and non-members who earned enough money to have placed in the top 200 had they been eligible to receive points. The top 25 players on the Web.com Tour regular-season money list earned PGA Tour cards. They are competing against each other for tour priority, with regular-season earnings counting in their totals. The other players are fighting for 25 cards based on series earnings.
Gibson was 33rd on the Web.com Tour regular-season money list and entered the week 24th on the series money list with $33,942.
Lucas Glover, Sam Saunders and Mexico's Oscar Fraustro were tied for second.
