The event, which will be broadcast on the Golf Channel, will have a purse of $550,000 with $99,000 going to the winner.

The players will be in for a treat at Victoria National, a Tom Fazio design that is one of the best courses not only in Indiana, but in the country.

The Web.com Tour will then take a week off before heading west to the Utah Championship in Sandy, Utah. That tournament will be held July 12-15.

Here are the power rankings for this week.

Power Rankings: United Leasing Championship at Victoria National Golf Club
Rank   Player Comment
Jim
HERMAN
After getting a taste of the PGA TOUR last season, Herman has recently found his groove on the Web.com Tour. He tied for second in Wichita and in his last four starts has not finished worse than a tie for 16th. Herman is ranked 14th on the money list.
Justin
HICKS
His game has been improving every week and he's made six straight cuts. He also tied for second in Wichita by firing a 67 in the final round. Hicks has four top-10 showings this season and is sitting at No. 9 on the money list.
Charles
WARREN
After five missed cuts Warren, a former Clemson star, tied for ninth Sunday. While he has struggled most of this season he appears to be finding some momentum. He sits a distant 61st on the money list and needs to string a few good weeks together.
Casey
WITTENBERG
He finally broke the ice this season to become the first two-time winner on the Web.com Tour. He moved from 10th on the money list to second. With one more win he would earn an instant battlefield promotion to the PGA TOUR.
Hudson
SWAFFORD
He's one of the few players who have actually seen and played the course. The former Georgia star was able to play it during a media day earlier this year. After missing two cuts Swafford has a tie for 17th and a tie for fourth.
