“We’re very excited that Sycamore Hills Golf Club and Fort Wayne will be the first stop on the inaugural Web.com Tour Finals,” said Butler on behalf of the tournament’s host organization. “As the official proving ground of the PGA TOUR, three out of every four PGA TOUR members have played on the Web.com Tour. Patrons of the Hotel Fitness Championship are guaranteed to see world-class golf that week.”
“We think golf fans in Fort Wayne will support this great new event,” said Bruce Dye, CEO of Hotel Fitness. “We’re excited to be hosting the PGA TOUR and be an integral part of the PGA TOUR’s new approach to awarding TOUR cards for 2013-14.”
Players who are eligible for the Hotel Fitness Championship include the top-75 money winners on the Web.com Tour at the conclusion of the Regular Season; players who finish 126-200 on the PGA TOUR’s FedExCup points list at the end of the TOUR’s Regular Season; and, any non-members who earn enough points to place them among 126-200 on the FedExCup points list at the end of the Regular Season.
All proceeds from the 2013 Hotel Fitness Championship will benefit the Evans Scholars Foundation, which awards full tuition and housing college scholarships to caddies from modest means.
“The support of the golf community affords us the tremendous opportunity to award the gift of a college education to deserving caddies,” said John Kaczkowski, WGA president and CEO. “We expect to make a very substantial donation to the Evans Scholars with a successful 2013 Hotel Fitness Championship.”
All patrons will have access to free parking at the tournament.
