The Nationwide Children's Championship dates back to 2007. Jack Nicklaus, who played golf in college at Ohio State, is the honorary host of this Web.com Tour event. PGA Tour players Justin Thomas (2014), Harris English (2011) and Daniel Summerhays (20017) have all won this Web.com event.

The Nationwide Children's Championship golf tournament on the Web.com Tour is the 3rd of four Web.com Tour Finals tournaments that offer players ways to earn their PGA Tour cards for next season. Players who finished the regular season in the top 25 on the money list get their PGA Tour cards and the 25 players who accumulate the most money over the four Web.com Finals tournaments including the Nationwide Children's Championship also get their tour cards for 2017.
