Strong winds and high temperatures didn’t dampen the 2009 Preferred Health Systems Wichita Open. Attendees, media and Nationwide Tour players who descended onto Crestview Country Club this past weekend found a well-oiled event. Preferred Health Systems Wichita Open Director Roy Turner, Assistant Director Debbie Burch and their impressive team pulled it off yet again.

Chris Tidland from California took home the top prize with 16 under par, with Dave Schultz from North Dakota and Chad Collins from Indiana tying for second at minus-15. Up next for the Tour: The Price Cutter Charity Championship in Springfield, Missouri.
