| ||The Nationwide Tour opens its 2012 season in Colombia this week and the event
has a big name helping the cause. Former President Bill Clinton will be at
the event on Tuesday and Wednesday and will play in the Pro-Am to boost the
stature of the tournament. The Tuesday evening charity gala will support
Clinton`s foundation. The weather was the real winner last year. With bad
weather the first couple days, the first round was not completed until
Saturday morning. Brendan Pappas took the lead after round two and the third
round started Sunday afternoon. More than two hours into the third round,
more inclement weather moved in and the tournament was shortened to 36 holes.
Pappas was declared the winner. It was his second tour victory. He will be on
hand to defend his title. There is no television this week. The tour heads to
Panama next week for the Panama Claro Championship, where Mathew Goggin won
by two shots last year.
