The 15th annual Reno-Tahoe Open is now underway at Montreux Golf Course. Top players in the PGA tournament will split up a $3 million purse.

Practice rounds take place through Tuesday with the official pro-ams taking place Monday and Wednesday. Tournament play begins Thursday.

The RTO is broadcast live on the GOLF CHANNEL from 3:30pm-5:30pm PST Thursday and Friday - and 3:30pm-6pm PST Saturday - and from 4pm-6pm PST Sunday.

Meanwhile, the Food Bank of Northern Nevada is making it easier to attend while collecting for those in need.

Event parking normally costs $5, but if you bring two or more non-perishable items to the Food Bank, you can park free.

All parking will be available at Galena high School, located off Mt. Rose Highway, and free shuttles to Montreux will be provided.

"Carpooling not only eases traffic congestion, but also allows the Reno-Tahoe Open to take part in preserving the great outdoors, and donating food for the Food Bank of Northern Nevada helps us and our guests give back to this great community," says Chris Hoff, executive director for the Reno-Tahoe Open.

Much needed items include peanut butter, canned tuna, canned chili, soups and one-dish meals, canned vegetables, canned fruit, pasta, rice and beans.

For a complete guide to parking for this year's tournament, visit www.renotahoeopen.com or call the tournament office at 775-322-3900.

Montreux is a par-72, 7,472-yard Jack Nicklaus Signature Design course, constructed in 1997.

The tournament is one of 45 full-field stops during the PGA Tour regular season, and is part of the FedExCup Series, a points competition for PGA Tour professionals.
