Web.com Tour Commissioner Bill Calfee told Mike Dudurich on The Fan Golf Show that it’s a great event with a unique twist.
“We wanted to do something a little bit different,” Calfee said. “With Columbus having that eligibility of the college and amateur top players, we thought it’d be a great place to take that eligibility, put it at Mylan, give them something unique so that they’ve got 12 of the top amateur players coming to Pittsburgh.”READ MORE: WalletHub: Pittsburgh Is One Of The Best Cities For Singles
