Fans’ Guide for the 29th PCCC

The PGA Web.com Tour’s 29th Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper gets under way Thursday morning at Highland Springs Country Club.

Here’s our fan’s guide on the top players, tickets, where to eat & more!

TOP 10 to WATCH

Dawie Van Der Walt won it in 2015

The Web.com Tour’s website had a great Power Rankings post this week taking a look at the race for 25 PGA Tour cards for next season. Among 10 players to watch are:

Sungjae Im. A victory, three runner-up finishes and the money lead for the entire season. After his runner-up last week at Indian Creek, it would be hard to slot him anywhere else.

Dawie van der Walt. The South Africa native recorded a season-best top four last week in Omaha, and he returns to Highland Springs with good memories from his victory in 2015.

David Skinns. Following an emotional, breakthrough victory in Omaha, the Englishman is able to reset his goals in a hurry. He ranked third in driving accuracy and 13th in distance last week, a potent combination.
