MILWAUKEE -- Former Marquette University standout golfer Mike Van Sickle has been invited to play in the Nationwide Children's Hospital Invitational, a Nationwide Tour event, to be held at Ohio State University's Scarlet Course, July 30 through August 2, in Columbus, Ohio.
Invitations to compete in this week's Nationwide tournament were extended to 2009 Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) award winners and first-team All-Americans. Van Sickle was this year's Byron Nelson Award winner, in addition to being named to the PING All-America First Team.
It will be the third professional golf tournament this month for Van Sickle, one of the top-ranked amateur golfers in the world. He also garnered exemptions into the John Deere Classic and U.S. Bank Championship -- both PGA TOUR events.
Live national television coverage of the Nationwide Children's Hospital Invitational will be provided by the Golf Channel.
