Nationwide TourCOLUMBUS, Ohio -- History was made last year when amateur Daniel Summerhays won the Children's Hospital Invitational.
 
Summerhays was the first-ever amateur to win on the Nationwide Tour. In keeping with that, tournament sponsors invited 10 of the top collegiate golfers to compete this week.
 
Those 10 include Kevin Chappell, Jonas Blixt, Jorge Campillo, Rickie Fowler, Rory Hie, Sihwan Kim, Jamie Lovemark, Joel Sjoholm, Webb Simpson and Michael Thompson.
 
Of that group, Campillo, Sjoholm and Simpson will not be playing. Simpson accepted an invitation to play on the PGA TOUR at the Canadian Open this week.
 
GOLF CHANNEL will air two hours of play the first two days, then three hours of action on Saturday and Sunday.
