NEWBURGH -

The Web.com Tour has signed a 10-year deal with Victoria National Golf Club near Evansville. The course will serve as host venue for the Web.com Tour Championship Presented by United Leasing & Finance through 2028.

The Web.com Tour is a feeder series for the PGA TOUR. Evansville-based United Leasing & Finance, which has served as the title sponsor of the championship tournament since 2012, will now be the presenting sponsor of the event.

"We are excited to bring the Web.com Tour Championship to Evansville because it has all the elements and partnerships in place to make this unprecedented, long-term commitment an incredible success," Web.com Tour President Dan Glod said in a news release. "It starts with United Leasing & Finance, which has been an unwavering supporter of the Web.com Tour since 2011. And now with Dormie Network’s support of the tournament and its recent acquisition of Victoria National Golf Club – one of the game’s most demanding tests – we have the ideal scenario for our season-ending championship."

The tournament will also benefit Golf Gives Back, which has generated more than $1.6 million for area nonprofits since 2012. The tour championship is scheduled for August 30-September 2, 2019.
