The Daniel Island Club

Starting tomorrow The Daniel Island Club’s Ralston Creek course will host the Nationwide Tour Championship. The tournament is the final event of the year and the stakes are high for those players who have qualified. The top 60 players on the Tour’s money list will compete in a 4 round, no cut, stroke play event with the top 25 earning their cards to play on the PGA Tour in 2010.

For ticket information you can visit the Nationwide Tour website or the Family Circle Tennis Center ticket office. Daily tickets are available for $10 per day and weekly passes are priced at $30 per person. All four rounds will be broadcasted on The Golf Channel on Thursday thru Sunday from 2 – 4:30 p.m. so Daniel Island and the Charleston area should get some quality TV time this weekend. The Daniel Island Club is signed on to host the event through 2011.

The Nationwide Tour is essentially the minor leagues for the PGA Tour but has shown to be fertile proving grounds for up and coming golfers. Master Champion Zach Johnson, two-time Heritage winner Boo Weekly, and US Ryder Cup member Brandt Snedeker are some of the more popular and successful PGA Tour members who got their careers rolling on the Nationwide Tour.
