New venue for the Nationwide Tour Championship

While it may no longer carry the name of "Nationwide," the year-end championship of the PGA Tour's minor league will be played next year at the TPC Craig Ranch in McKinney, TX, in suburban Dallas. The formal announcement will come on Monday.

After a three-year run on the Ralston Creek course at the Daniel Island Club outside Charleston, SC, the event will move to avoid next year's PGA Championship to be played on the other side of the city of Charleston at Kiawah Island's Ocean Course. Though no agreement has been reached, both Daniel Island and the PGA Tour are interested in resuming the relationship in 2013.
