Live Report Image Tour pros like Morgan Hoffmann battled tough conditions in Texas.

Stan Badz/PGA TOUR No. 2 Luke Guthrie won in back-to-back weeks in September.

The Tour season will come to close today at TPC Craig Ranch, and there’s a lot at stake for all 60 players in the field.

When the final putt drops at the Tour Championship, players who finish in the top 25 on the money list will go home with PGA TOUR cards for the 2013 season. Nos. 26-40 will be exempt into the finals of PGA TOUR q-school and Nos. 39-60 will be fully exempt on the Tour in 2013.

There is even more at stake, though for the player who finishes on top of the money list. The No. 1 player will earn fully-exempt status for the 2013 season on the PGA TOUR, as well as a spot in THE PLAYERS Championship.

Casey Wittenberg entered the week in the top spot thanks to two wins this season, and starts the day in a tie for eighth. Keep an eye on Luke Guthrie and Russell Henley, each also with two wins this season and within striking distance of No. 1. Guthrie made his way to second on the money list with only nine starts on Tour this year.

The winner of the tournament takes home $180,000.
