FORT WAYNE, Ind. – Due to recent heavy rainfall in Northeast Indiana, gates will be closed to the public on Tuesday, Aug. 26 for the Hotel Fitness Championship, Western Golf Association tournament officials have announced. The Mad Anthonys Pro-Am at the Hotel Fitness Championship will continue as scheduled on Wednesday, Aug. 27.
“The course will be closed during Tuesday’s professional practice rounds, but the rest of the week’s events will resume as previously scheduled,” noted Duke Butler IV, tournament director, on behalf of the WGA. “If there are any further changes to the tournament program, we will announce them and post messages to our website as soon as the decisions are made.”
The Hotel Fitness Championship is the first of four Web.com Tour Finals events that will determine the second set of 25 players who will earn their cards for the upcoming 2014-15 PGA TOUR season under the TOUR’s enhanced qualifying system. The first set of 25 cards will be determined at the conclusion of the Web.com Tour’s Regular Season in Portland on Sunday.
Players eligible for the Hotel Fitness Championship include the top-75 money winners on the Web.com Tour at the conclusion of the Regular Season; players who finished 126-200 on the PGA TOUR’s FedExCup points list at the end of last week’s Wyndham Championship (less those with exemptions); and non-members who earn enough points to place them among 126-200 on the FedExCup points list at the end of the regular season.
