Web.com Tour In KC: Midwest Classic Under Way At Nicklaus GC At LionsGate

The Web.com Midwest Classic, stop 18 this season in the 27-tournament schedule of what previously was called the Nationwide Tour, is in Kansas City this weekend at the Nicklaus Golf Club at LionsGate in Overland Park.

The Web.com Tour (formerly the Nationwide Tour), the developmental understudy of the Professional Golfers Association Tour, is in Kansas City this week, with play currently under way at the Nicklaus Golf Club at LionsGate in Overland Park.

The Midwest Classic features a starting field of 156 golfers, which will be cut in half after the first two rounds of play. The field includes 80 of the top 100 players on the Web.com money list. The top two money winners on the Web.com Tour, however - Casey Wittenberg, who played collegiately at Oklahoma State, and Ben Nobles, both of whom have two tour wins this season - are not in the field for this tournament.

Also in the field is last year's winner, James Nitties

Several recognizable names of golfers who have played on the PGA Tour - among them Notah Begay III, Duffy Waldorf and Lee Janzen - are playing in the Midwest Classic in Kansas City this week. Among the notable Kansas City-area golfers in the field are Milburn golf pro Sean Dougherty and Michael Letzig, who finished sixth last weekend in the Price Cutter Charity Championship in Springfield, Mo.

The Tournament begins today and runs through Sunday over the par 72, 7,200-yard Nicklaus Golf Club layout.
