Matt Kuchar, a former PGA TOUR player who regained his tour card via his play on the Nationwide Tour in 2006, walked away with a playoff win here last year.
Kuchar two-putted for birdie on the third extra hole to defeat Paul Claxton and collect his first Nationwide Tour title. Kuchar has moved on to the PGA TOUR and will not be on hand to defend his title.
Get ready to see some low numbers this week. Daniel Chopra posted a Nationwide Tour record score of 30 under par here in 2004. That total was four strokes better than the previous tour mark.
Last year, Kuchar's winning score of minus-9 was the first time in six years that the winning total wasn't at least 20 under par.
The GOLF CHANNEL will have two hours of coverage for each of the first two rounds, then three hours of action each of the final two days. The Nationwide Tour shifts to Arkansas next week for the Fort Smith Classic, where Darron Stiles was victorious in 2006.
