We're not yet at the most nerve-wracking event of the golf season -- that'd be Q School, which still lies ahead. But for 25 Nationwide Tour players, this past weekend was Christmas and their birthday all wrapped up in one. They placed among the top 25 on the Nationwide Tour's money list, and as such won a PGA Tour card for 2012. Congrats to these fine players, starting with the gentleman pictured above:

1. J.J. Killeen
2. Ted Potter, Jr.
3. Mathew Goggin
4. Jason Kokrak
5. Jonas Blixt
6. Danny Lee
7. Ken Duke
8. Scott Brown
9. Gary Christian
10. Miguel Angel Carballo
11. Troy Kelly
12. Russell Knox
13. Erik Compton
14. John Mallinger
15. Kyle Thompson
16. Kyle Reifers
17. Gavin Coles
18. Matt Every
19. Daniel Chopra
20. Steve Wheatcroft
21. Garth Mulroy
22. Mark Anderson
23. Roberto Castro
24. Martin Flores
25. Billy Hurley III

Our Jonathan Wall has broken down five of the more significant players on that list. Each player received a Tiffany money clip with their 2012 PGA Tour card inside. (Think they have to keep up with that card all through the year? I'm sure somebody's run theirs through the wash by mistake.)

Anyway, six players won tournaments on the Nationwide Tour but weren't able to break into the top 25; that list was headed by James Nitties, who finished barely $5,000 behind Hurley for the 25th position. Golf is a cruel game, but for these 25 guys, it'll pay off handsomely in 2012.
