The PGA Tour's Reno-Tahoe Open is changing its name to the Open at Reno-Tahoe as part of a $3.75 million deal. is the new name of the Arizona-based company that until today was known as Golfgateway.

The company, which books tee times via the Internet, agreed to a three-year deal, paying $1 million this year, $1.25 million next year and $1.5 million in 2002. After that, it will have an option for a two-year renewal, tournament officials said Tuesday.

The August tournament at Montreux Golf and Country Club at the base of Mount Rose did not have a title sponsor last year.

The tournament began in 1999 to help build the region's golf reputation by linking it to the PGA Tour.
