The tours leading money winner this year is one of the hottest players anywhere. He has a pair of victories and a third-place finish in his previous three starts. One more win and hell become just the second player (Chris Smith in 1997) to earn a battlefield promotion to the PGA Tour.
Slocum skipped last weeks Hershey Open.
A year ago, Ben Crane became the 12th Monday qualifier in tour history to reach the winners circle when he shot rounds of 67-63-66-67. Cranes 25-under-par total was one stroke shy of the 72-hole tour record set by Smith at the 1997 Omaha Classic.
This years tournament will be contested at the par-72 Crestview Country Club (7,000 yards). Willowbend Golf Club was the venue from 1997-2000.
The purse is $425,000, with $76,500 going to the winner.
