 NOTES:
 The  2015 Web.com Tour  season kicks off this week in Central America with the
 Panama  Claro  Championship.  The  top  42 finishers  from  the  Web.com  Tour
 Qualifying  Tournament  in December are  in the field, including medalist Brad
 Fritsch.  A  fixture on the Caribbean  Tour for years, this tournament was the
 first Web.com Tour event staged in Central America in 2004.
 
 Last  year,  Carlos Ortiz  closed with  a bogey-free, 6-under  64 in the final
 round  and came  from behind to win. Ortiz,  who won for the first time on the
 Web.com Tour, ended at 12-under-par 268 at Club de Golf de Panama. It was only
 his fifth career start on the Web.com Tour.
 
 Ortiz  will not be on hand to defend his title, as he earned his PGA Tour card
 for  this season.  He already has recorded  a top-10 finish on the PGA Tour, a
 tie for ninth at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba in November.
 
 In  2013,  Kevin Foley rolled  in a  15-foot birdie putt  at the final hole to
 capture his first career victory. Foley carded rounds of 66-69-70-67 to finish
 at 8-under 272 for the tournament, which was a stroke ahead of Mathew Goggin.
 
 Edward  Loar birdied  the 16th hole in  the final round in 2012 with a 25-foot
 putt  to break  free of the pack,  then parred out to secure his first Web.com
 Tour  victory.  Prior to this  tournament, he had never  been in first after a
 round  on the tour.  Loar finished at 4-under 276, one stroke ahead of Cameron
 Percy,  Ryan  Armour, Luke List  and Brian Smock.  Loar became the sixth left-
 handed winner in Web.com Tour history.
 
 In 2011, Goggin  shot rounds of  68-66-67-68 to win by two strokes over Darron
 Stiles  and Alistair  Presnell. Goggin,  who  won for  the third  time on  the
 Web.com  Tour,  finished at 11-under-par  269. It was  his first win since the
 1999  Omaha Classic. The gap between wins on tour for Goggin was 11 years, six
 months and 19 days, the third-longest stretch in tour history.
 
 Fran  Quinn  jumped in front by  five strokes following a third-round, course-
 record  62 and held  on to win by two over Smock in 2010. Quinn, who picked up
 his  fourth  Web.com Tour title,  finished at 15-under-par 265. After smashing
 the  54-hole  scoring record, Quinn  also crushed  the 72-hole scoring mark of
 269, which Tripp Isenhour set in 2006.
 
 In  2009,  Vance Veazey  made a  2-putt par  to win  a playoff, collecting his
 fourth  Web.com Tour victory. Veazey and Garrett Willis needed two extra holes
 to  decide  the tournament, with  Veazey finally  ending things at Panama Golf
 Club's par-4 10th hole. Veazey also won this event in 2005.
 
 Scott  Dunlap  shot rounds  of 65-68-73-71 in  2008 to win  by one stroke over
 Arjun  Atwal  and Jeff  Klauk. Dunlap  finished the  event at 3-under-par 277.
 Dunlap,  Atwal, Klauk  and Chris  Smith were  the only  players to  finish the
 tournament  under par.  The final round scoring average was 73.677, which made
 it the toughest single day in tournament history and the toughest round on the
 Web.com Tour in 2008.
 
 In  2007, Miguel Angel  Carballo fired a 5-under 65 in the final round to win.
 Carballo  finished  at 6-under-par 274 for  a 2-shot victory over Hunter Haas,
 Jim  McGovern  and Patrick Sheehan. With  his victory in 2007, Carballo became
 the  first player from Argentina to win a Web.com Tour event. His victory came
 at  the  same course, Panama Golf  Club, where another famous Argentine golfer
 won the Panama Open, Hall of Famer Roberto De Vicenzo.
 
 The  Web.com  Tour comes  travels to  South America next  week for the Pacific
 Rubiales  Colombia Championship  in Bogota, where Alex Cejka captured the 2014
 title.
