Barracuda named title sponsor of Reno event


Barracuda Networks announced Wednesday a four-year deal to become the title sponsor of the PGA Tour’s Reno-Tahoe event.

The newly named Barracuda Championship is scheduled for July 31-Aug. 3 at Montreux Golf & Country Club.

The Reno event, played opposite the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, is the only tournament on the schedule to use the modified Stableford scoring system, which rewards points for birdies and eagles and subtracts points for bogeys or worse. Gary Woodland, who earned 44 points, is the defending champion.
