David Duval and Bob Tway are the only players using a one-time exemption from career earnings to keep their PGA Tour cards for next year.

Duval's five-year exemption from winning the British ran out this year. His exemption is from the top 25 on the career money list (Duval is No. 24), and because he is more than $4 million clear on 50th place, he should be able to use a top-50 exemption next year if he needs one.

Tway is 29th in career earnings, and will use his one-time exemption from the top 50. An eight-time winner and former PGA champion, Tway finished 175th on the money list, his lowest position since 1992. He did not need an exemption then because he had a 10-year exemption from his '86 PGA victory.
