Promotion Day - The 25 Receive their PGA Tour Cards

The 2011 Nationwide Tour Championship is in the books as Ken Duke will look to re-join the PGA Tour in 2012 after besting the field in Daniels Island, South Carolina by two strokes over Scott Brown.

The top-25 players on the Nationwide Tour money list at season's end are promoted to the PGA Tour. Today dreams were fulfilled for some and broken for others.

Double heart transplant survivor Erik Compton will be one of the 25 to receive his PGA Tour card from commissioner Tim Finchem in a ceremony today in South Carolina.

J.J. Killeen won the overall money title earning $414,273, which also guarantees him another bonus after he receives his PGA Tour card.

Killeen will be teeing it up in the Players Championship at the TPC Sawgrass next May as well.

Australian James Nitties missed out on his chance to join the PGA Tour as he finished in the 26th spot on the money list. Missing out by $5,341.
