2016 will mark the 10th year for the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship and the third year it will be featured as one of four Web.com Tour Finals events.
The tournament provides Central Ohio golf fans an opportunity to see the future stars of the PGA TOUR in their their own hometown. Players like Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson and Jason Day have all played at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship. The Finals, which pit the bottom 75 PGA TOUR pros against the top 75 Web.com Tour pros in a four tournament playoff series, rewards 50 players with PGA TOUR cards for the following season.
Tournament officials announced during the 2015 tournament they had reached an agreement with the Web.com Tour to keep the Nationwide Children’s Championship at the Ohio State University Scarlet Course through 2018.
Benefiting Nationwide Children’s Hospital
All proceeds from the event benefit Nationwide Children’s Hospital, which provides world-class care to every child, regardless of a family’s ability to pay. In 2015, the tournament raised more than $1.25 million for the pediatric cancer research and treatment at the hospital and more than $5.5 million over the past nine years.
