Nicklaus Playing Host to Nwide Event

Nationwide TourCOLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Nationwide Tour has a new event this week, the Nationwide Children's Hospital Invitational, and it has one of the biggest names in golf serving as the honorary chairman.
Jack Nicklaus, an Ohio State alum, will play host on the Buckeyes' Scarlet Course. Nicklaus oversaw a 2006 renovation of the course, which has been rated by Golf Digest as the top collegiate golf course in the country.
To get into the field, players need to fit into one of these categories: tournament winners from 2006-07; top-60 money earners on the 2006 money list; players who finished 21-60 on the 2006 money list; current U.S. Amateur champion; NCAA champion; Jack Nicklaus Award winner (College Player of the Year); First Team All-Americans; six Sponsor Exemptions, two of which are restricted to PGA Tour/Nationwide Tour members; or any finisher in the top 25 and ties from the previous event.
GOLF CHANNEL will have tape-delayed coverage of all four rounds this week. Next week is the Price Cutter Charity Championship, where Doug LaBelle II won last year.
