Nationwide Set for Showdown

RSS

Nationwide TourBYRON, Minn. -- The Showdown at Somerby was moved up four weeks on the Nationwide Tour schedule this year.
 
It will be the fourth playing of the event. Last year, Brandt Snedeker needed two extra holes to defeat Jeff Quinney.
 
Both players have been playing well this year on the PGA TOUR as Snedeker is 43rd on the money list, while Quinney is 27th. Each has practically secured their PGA TOUR card for next year with over a $1 million earned to this point in the season.
 
None of the first three winners of this tournament -- Kevin Stadler, Jason Gore and Snedeker -- are in the field this week.
 
Tom Lehman, captain of the 2006 U.S. Ryder Cup team, co-designed Somerby Golf Club and the course was ranked by Golf Digest as one of the top-10 new private courses in 2005.
 
The Nationwide Tour heads to Tennessee next week for the Knoxville Open, where Hunter Haas was victorious last year.
