Updated: December 3, 2010

Michael Putnam of Tacoma played his way back onto the PGA Tour by finishing in the top 25 of the Nationwide Tour in 2010.

Putnam finished 24th in the standings, which was good enough since the top 25 players on the Nationwide Tour earned PGA Tour cards for the 2011 season.

Along the way, Putnam won the Utah Championship to help his cause.

Also, former Washington golfer and Spokane native Alex Prugh kept his card by finishing 67th on the money list. Ryan Moore of Puyallup also easily kept his card by finishing 31st on the list.
