It’s at the Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore designed, Warren Course in Soth Bend Ind. on the campus of Notre Dame.

David Toms is the defending champion and he is back in the field this year.

Joining him in the field, is Gary Nicklaus, yes a Nicklaus, son of Jack who will be out for Round 1 to see his son play.
