The 2018 Web.com Tour schedule begins in January and closes in September. It features an opening stretch of four consecutive weeks of play and a closing Web.com Finals slate that is rearranged from the 2017 schedule.

All told, the 2018 schedule includes 27 tournaments (most since 2012) and $18.3 million in prize money (most since 2010).

The season begins with back-to-back tournaments in the Bahamas.

The Bahamas Great Exuma Classic has a Saturday-Tuesday schedule and The Bahamas Great Abaco Classic a Sunday-Wednesday schedule. (All other tournaments are the usual Thursday-Sunday.) After the Bahamas, the tour plays the following two weeks in Panama and Colombia. It's the first time in Web.com Tour history a season starts with tournaments in four consecutive weeks.

At the other end of the season, the Web.com Tour wraps up with a different order for the events that make up the Web.com Tour Finals. In 2018, the Albertsons Boise Open is the lead-in to the Web.com Tour Championship; in 2017, it was second in the four-tournament closing stretch.

What's at Stake in the 2018 Web.com Tour Schedule

The Web.com Tour is the developmental tour, or feeder tour, to the PGA Tour. The PGA Tour is top-level, the Web.com is the second level of men's professional golf in the United States.

So, in a broad sense, what's at stake are the futures of the golfers playing the Web.com Tour: Those who perform best in 2018 have the best chances to move up to the PGA Tour and, therefore, to begin what will possibly be long careers as touring golfers. More specifically, what's at stake are 25 spots on the PGA Tour for that tour's 2018-19 season.

The Web.com Tour is divided into two segments: the "regular season" (the first 23 events, the last of which is the WinCo Foods Portland Open) and the Web.com Finals, the final four tournaments on the schedule.

The golfers who finish the 2018 year in the Top 25 on the Web.com Tour's money list are guaranteed PGA Tour cards for that tour's 2018-19 season. But in the Web.com Tour Finals, they (along with other golfers participating) play to earn a higher level of status that gets them into more PGA Tour events the following year.
