There will continue to be a tour stop in Springfield, Mo., but the Nationwide Tour is no more.
The PGA Tour on Thursday announced a 10-year agreement with Web.com to replace Nationwide as sponsor of the tour. It will now be called the Web.com Tour.
Nationwide had been the umbrella sponsor for the tour since 2003.
The tour will continue to identify and transition players who are ready to compete and win on the PGA Tour. It currently awards PGA Tour membership to the 25 leading money winners at the end of the season. Beginning in 2013, a new qualifying structure expands the number of PGA Tour qualifiers from the Web.com Tour to 50.
The Web.com Tour stop in Missouri, the 23rd annual Price Cutter Charity Championship, is scheduled to be held Aug. 9-12 at Highland Springs Country Club in Springfield. A field of 156 golfers will compete for $625,000 at this year’s event.
The Springfield event continues to look for volunteers. For ticket information, or to inquire about being a volunteer, call (417) 887-3400 or visit the tournament website at www.PriceCutterCC.org
