The SWKSPA is a 54-hole event beginning on Friday and finishing Sunday morning. The tournament will boast a $100,000 guaranteed purse with $15,000 going to this year's Champion.
The following week, the Web.com moves to Springfield MO while the Adams Pro Tour moves to Miami, OK for the Buffalo Run Casino Classic. Just an hour and a half from the Monday qualifier, the Adams Pro Tour expects this event to fill early. The 72-hole tournament runs W-Sat, Aug 12-15. The tournament will again boast a $100,000 guaranteed purse with $15,000 going to this year's Champion.
PGA Veteran Takes POY Lead
BJ Staten, a veteran of over 170 starts on the PGA Tour and Web.com Tours, has vaulted him to the top spot in the Southwest Airlines Player of the Year rankings. BJ has a win and two top 3 finishes in just 5 starts this year on the Adams Tour. Dustin Morris' playoff win over Staten and second win of the season puts him just 48 points behind Staten's lead. Bret Lederer has slipped the third spot. While Mark Walker, who missed Manhattan event after qualifying for the Web.coms Wichita event, drops to fourth. Rounding out the top 5 is St Louis runner-up, Lance Lopez.
