The Midwest Classic is a Web.com Tour event that was played for the first time in 2009 as the Christmas in October Classic. It is played at the Nicklaus Golf Club at LionsGate in Overland Park, Kansas. The tournament took a hiatus in 2010, and returned as the Midwest Classic in 2011 with the Kansas City Crusaders as the host organization. Their mission is to provide a positive economic impact on area businesses and offer transformational support to local charitable organizations through the promotion of professional golf in Kansas City. Inspired by the Thunderbirds of Phoenix, the not-for-profit group that runs the Waste Management Phoenix Open, the Kansas City Crusaders is made up of a dedicated volunteer group of business professionals who live and work throughout Greater Kansas City.

The 2014 purse was $600,000.
