The Web.com Tour remains in South America this week for the Chile Classic. Three of the top-4 players on the money list are in the field - Kevin Foley, Jim Renner and Mathew Goggin. Money leader Patrick Cantlay along with other top players on the Web.com Tour are playing at the Puerto Rico Open on the PGA Tour this week. Foley won the season-opening Panama Claro Championship, while Cantlay captured the Colombia Championship last week.

The 2012 tournament marked the first time that the Web.com Tour has been to Chile. The event will be played at Prince of Wales Country Club in Santiago. Chile is the second South American country to host a Web.com Tour event, joining Colombia.

Last year, Paul Haley II fired rounds of 67-64-64-71 to earn a 3-stroke victory over Joseph Bramlett. Haley finished at 22-under-par 266 for his first Web.com Tour title in just his third start on tour.

Haley earned his PGA Tour card for 2012 by finishing 12th on the 2012 Web.com Tour money list. He has missed the cut in all four events he has played this season on the PGA Tour.

The Web.com Tour heads to the United States in two weeks for the first time in 2012 for the Chitimacha Louisiana Open, where Casey Wittenberg won the 2012 title at Le Triomphe Country Club in Broussard.
