Each contest is 2 weeks (6 playing days) and depending on the contest either the leading money winner or lowest total score for the six days (like Q-School Finals) will win the bonus. The next contest begins on July 9th when the tour returns to action after the summer break.
Tim Turpen and Sunny Kim started the round and final day of the 4th $1,000 Nationwide Monday Bonus Contest with Kim leading Turpen by 2 shots. The format of this contest was total score for the six days, like Q-School Finals. (in this case it was only 5 rounds due to the rainout at NPB CC)
Kim's lead disappeared on the first hole when he made double bogey, and Turpen grabbed a 1 shot lead on the second hole. Sunny pulled even with a birdie on #4 and extended his lead back to 2 shots through 7 holes.
