The Nationwide Tour Championship will be played at the TPC Craig Ranch course in Texas next fall.

The course in McKinney, Texas, hosted the 2008 tournament. Tour officials said a formal announcement would come Monday.


The top 25 players on the money list on Sunday night will earn their PGA Tour cards for 2012.

The Nationwide Tour had said last month it would not return to the Daniel Island club after three seasons hosting its year-ending tournament because the area is also holding the PGA Championship at The Ocean Course on Kiawah Island. The tour and Daniel Island are discussing a return to the Ralston Creek Course here in 2013.

Matt Bettencourt beat Jeff Klauk by a stroke to the win three years ago at the Nationwide Tour Championship when it was last played at the TPC Craig Ranch.
