PCCC purse grows to $1M

Posted online

Professional golfers are headed back to the Ozarks this week with their eyes on a larger prize.

The Price Cutter Charity Championship this year has a total purse of $1 million, including $180,000 for the winner, according to a news release. That's up from $750,000, with $135,000 for the winner, in last year's tournament.

The tournament at Highland Springs Country Club is scheduled July 20-23.

Defending champion David Kocher is returning to Springfield for the tournament, according to the release. Kocher completed the course in 260 shots, 28 under par, to take home $135,000 last year. He also broke the 72-hole PCCC record during last year's tournament, according to past reporting.

Another returning champion is Ben Silverman, who won the 2017 PCCC.

The PGA-sanctioned Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper on the Korn Ferry Tour doubles as a fundraiser for children's charities in the Ozarks. The fundraising total for the tournament typically is announced later in the year.

In November 2022, PCCC officials presented nearly $1.1 million to 54 Ozarks children's charities, according to past reporting. Since its debut in 1990, the tournament at Highland Springs has raised roughly $19.5 million for local charities.
