While the PGA Tours elite pad their pockets in the $5 Million Tour Championship, a host of others are trying to gain their playing privileges for next season.
The Southern Farm Bureau is the final official event on the PGA Tour schedule; the last tournament for players to finish inside the top 125 on the money list.

Last year, Steve Lowery rolled in a 40-foot birdie putt from the fringe to beat Skip Kendall on the first hole of sudden death. Lowery forced the playoff by birdieing the par-5 18th, while Kendall made par. It was his first victory since the 1994 International.
The week was also especially sweet for Pete Jordan, who tied for fourth. Jordan shot a final-round 64 to retain his tour card. He entered the tournament 126th on the money list, but jumped to No. 107 with his impressive finish.
This weeks purse is $2.4 million, with $432,000 going to the winner. There is a $9,257 difference between Bradley Hughes, No. 125 on the money list, and Brandt Jobe, No. 126.
Nos. 122-136 in earnings are in attendance this week, with the exception of Fred Couples. Couples is exempt through the 2006 season due to his 1996 Players Championship victory.
