Backed by a new title sponsor, the Wichita Open professional golf tournament is set to stay in the city for at least the next five years. Tournament officials made several announcements on Tuesday, including an agreement with the PGA Tour to continue hosting the Korn Ferry Tour event through 2027, and the purse increasing to $1 million — the highest since the first Open in 1990. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas is now the title sponsor through 2025, and the event will be called the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas Wichita Open Benefitting KU Wichita Pediatrics.
