The Nationwide Tour's season is well underway and a third of the season over. There has yet to be a repeat winner in 2010, with 10 different winners so far. This week the Tour moves to the Melwood Prince George's County Open Presented by Under Armour.

This tournament was played last year at The Country Club at Woodmore in Mitchellville, Md. and was won by Mathias Gronberg, who is in the field this week. Now the tournament has moved to College Park, Md. at the University of Maryland golf course.

CHAPPELL
The former UCLA star leads the money list with one victory in 10 tournaments this season. In his last two tournaments he has a tie for second at the BMW and a tie for 27th at the Rex Hospital Open.
Chris
NALLEN
Very quietly this Nationwide Tour veteran has made six of seven cuts and finished second at the Rex Hospital Open. In the rain-shortened tournament, Nallen fired 67-65-66. He looks like he's ready to win again.
Mathias
GRONBERG
Technically he's the defending champion, but the tournament is being played at a different course. This will be just his third Nationwide Tour tournament of the season having spent most of his time on the PGA TOUR.
Bobby
GATES
He missed his third cut of the season at the Rex Hospital Open but is still second on the money list. He's due to be in contention again and it could be this week.
B.J.
STATEN
Tied for third at the Rex Hospital, and even though he's 31st on the money list, is starting to come on. He also had a tie for fifth at the South Georgia Classic earlier this season.

It's only a matter of time before somebody wins for a second time this season. Could it be this week?
