PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – When the PGA Nationwide Tour’s Mylan Classic gets underway, a couple of big names will be in the field.

Mediate is a Greensburg native who has six wins on the PGA Tour during his 25-year career. In 2008, Mediate lost to Tiger Woods in a playoff at the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines.
