Jon Mills, Indiana, who has alternated between the Nationwide and PGA Tours the last five years, and Steve Wheatcroft, a Washington, PA, native, are both in need of strong second halves on the Nationwide Tour.

Mills, who has twice graduated to the PGA Tour, 2005 & 2007, after top ten money list finishes on the Nationwide Tour the previous year, is 62nd this year with $42,555.

Wheatcroft, who made the PGA Tour in 2007, was low qualifier in both the first and second stages of last Fall's PGA Tour School before gaining Nationwide Tour status in the finals. He is 110th on the list with $22,024.

Mills best finish is a t-6 at the South Georgia Classic, Kinderlou Forest GC, Valdosta, while Wheatcroft's best is a t-13 at the BMW Charity Pro-Am, at the Thornblade Club, Greer, South Carolina. For both players, half of their winnings were at these sites.
