Viking Classic golf event extended 1 year

MADISON, Miss. (AP) - The Viking Classic has signed a 1-year extension with the PGA Tour, keeping the Mississippi event at Annandale Golf Club in Madison through 2011.

Tournament director Randy Watkins says the purse will be $3.6 million, the same as it was last year.

The 2010 tournament is scheduled for Sept. 27 to Oct. 3.

Watkins says he's received commitments to play from seven past champions and six major winners.

Last year's event was canceled after nearly constant rain left the course unplayable.
