The Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship is a golf tournament on the Web.com Tour. It was played for the first time in July 2007 at The Ohio State University Golf Club's Scarlet Course in Upper Arlington, Ohio. Jack Nicklaus, a former Ohio State golfer and Upper Arlington native, serves as honorary host of the event.

The first six years of the event were unique in that it invited the top collegiate golfers to compete.[1] Amateurs won two of the six events.

Since 2013, it is part of the Web.com Tour Finals and the field consists of the top 75 players from the Web.Com Tour money list and the players ranked 126 to 200 on the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup points list at the start of the Finals.[2][3]

The 2014 purse was $1,000,000, with a $180,000 winner's share.
