SAN DIEGO, California (Doug Ferguson/AP) — The 25 players who earn PGA Tour cards at the Tour Finals this year won’t have much time to celebrate. Most of them will have to get on a plane and cross the country to Napa, California, to start a new season in the big leagues.

Part of that would appear to be due to the Ryder Cup.

The Tour Finals feature four tournaments that concludes with the Tour Championship. Ordinarily, that would be played the same week as the Ryder Cup, followed by a week off and then the start of the 2016-17 season.

PANAMA CITY, Panama (AP) — Ryan Armour won the Tour’s season-opening Panama Claro Championship for his first victory in 217 career starts.

The 39-year-old former Ohio State player closed with a 6-under 64 in hot and windy conditions for a three-stroke victory over Kyle Thompson. Armour finished at 12-under 268 at Panama Golf Club and earned $112,500.

“I was getting a little choked up coming down the stretch thinking about how many times I was in contention and didn’t close the deal,” Armour said. “Luckily, today I got so far ahead that the three- putt on the 18th hole didn’t matter. It’s an unbelievable relief, unbelievable ecstasy to get this ‘W’ and get this season going right.”

Armour eagled the par-5 fourth, hitting a 3-iron from 219 yards to 6 feet.
