Big Week Big Prize on Nwide Tour


Nationwide TourBRIDGEPORT, West Virginia -- For the first time in Nationwide Tour history, a tournament will have a $1 million purse.
The $1 million purse comes in the 554th event in tour history. The winning share will be $180,000.
That will be the largest first-place check in Nationwide Tour history, topping the $148,248 winners check from this year's Moonah Classic.
The tour is in the midst of a five-week stretch with large purses. Next week's $600,000 purse is the smallest during the run, where winners will nearly guarantee their PGA Tour cards for next season.
The GOLF CHANNEL will have two hours of coverage the first two days, then three hours of action on the final two days.
Next week is the Price Cutter Charity Championship, where Tom Scherrer won last year.
