| ||The Midwest Classic returns after a one-year break. In 2009, Michael Sim
closed with a 67 to win by two strokes over Josh Teater. The victory was the
third of the year for Sim, which meant he earned the automatic Battlefield
promotion to the PGA Tour. Sim is having a tough season on the PGA Tour as he
has missed the cut 11 times, while earning just four paychecks. He also
withdrew from his last start at the Greenbrier Classic. When Sim won the
title in 2009, the event was in its first year and was known as the Christmas
in October Classic. Seven of the top-10 money leaders with tee it up this
week at the Nicklaus Golf Club at LionsGate, including two-time winner J.J.
Killeen. He will look to duplicate Sim`s feat and move on to the PGA Tour for
the Fall Series. There is no television this week. The tour heads to
Tennessee next week for the News Sentinel Open, where Chris Kirk was a
two-stroke winner last year.
