Professionals golfers are gearing up to play this week at the Price Cutter Charity Championship.

Up for grabs is a $600,000 purse, with $108,000 for the winner of the PGA-sanctioned Korn Ferry Tour event, according to a news release. The tournament, which has 156 players, is scheduled July 22-25 at Highland Springs Country Club.

Oklahoma native Max McGreevy is seeking to defend his title after winning the PCCC in 2020. He earned $117,000 for the win, and the event last year has a $650,000 purse.

A title win has not been successfully defended in the 32-year history of the Korn Ferry Tour, according to the release.

Proceeds of the event will go toward children's charities in the Ozarks. Last year, PCCC officials issued 48 nonprofits a total of $830,000, a drop from $952,000 given to 49 charities in 2019, according to past reporting.

This year's tournament is the second to last for PCCC and Missouri Sports Hall of Fame CEO Jerald Andrews. He's slated to be succeeded by Bolivar attorney Byron Shive after the 2022 PCCC tournament, Springfield Business Journal previously reported.
