With summer right around the corner the Nationwide Tour will heat up this week with its second straight stop in Georgia.

The Tour moves to Athens for the Stadion Classic at the University of Georgia.

When Luke List won on Sunday he became the seventh different winner this season on the Nationwide Tour.

After this week's Stadion Classic the Nationwide Tour will have a week off before resuming with the BMW Charity Pro-Am in South Carolina from May 17-20.

The former Vanderbilt star picked up his first win at the South Georgia Classic last week. He averaged 329 yards on the longest course on Tour.
He may have found something on Sunday after firing a 67 in the final round. At one point he was 8-under after 16 holes. He came back down to earth but will likely carry over that good play.
The veteran TOUR player is serious about the time he's spending this season on the Nationwide Tour. He has three top 10s on Tour this year, including last week's third place.
He's quietly slipped into the top 10 on the money list thanks to his second place finish on Sunday. In six events he has had four top 25s. The 29-year-old graduated from Oakland University in 2005.
Russell HENLEY Hudson SWAFFORD Richard SCOTT The final spot goes to a trio of former Georgia golfers who know the layout. It's a good bet that one or even two of them will be on the leaderboard this week. Henley won last year as an amateur but so far as a pro has struggled.
