Claxton Looks to Add to Victory Total

GLENVIEW, Ill. -- Jason Dufner claimed last year's LaSalle Bank Open with the highest winning score in relation to par in three years on the Nationwide Tour, closing with a 1-under 70 on Sunday to win by one shot at 5-under 279.
Dufner's second career Nationwide Tour win, and first since 2001, netted him the largest first-place check to that point on the tour's 2006 domestic schedule ($135,000).
The winner's share this year is the same, but Dufner, as is usually the case on the Nationwide Tour, will not be on hand to defend his title. He is currently struggling on the PGA TOUR.
Last week's winner at the Melwood Prince Georges County Open, Paul Claxton, will be looking to become the second two-time winner on the Nationwide Tour in 2006 after Nick Flanagan.
A busy GOLF CHANNEL will have coverage of all four rounds. Next week is the Rex Hospital Open, where Brenden Pappas won last year.
