The PGA TOUR, the Reno-Tahoe Open Foundation and Barracuda Networks, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-connected security and storage solutions, announced a four-year agreement making Barracuda the title sponsor of the TOUR's Reno-Tahoe tournament starting this 2014.

The Barracuda Championship is a professional golf tournament on the PGA Tour in northwestern Nevada. Founded in 1999, it is an alternate event played annually in August at the Montreux Golf and Country Club, located midway between Reno and Lake Tahoe. For its first three years, it had a full field of 156 players, while the World Golf Championship event had a field of about 40. When the WGC event expanded to about 80 players in 2002, the Reno-Tahoe Open's field was reduced to 132 players.

Until 2010, the tournament was played the same week as the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, in August. In 2010, the PGA Tour announced that Reno-Tahoe Open would be played several weeks earlier, opposite the British Open, from July 15-18. This lasted only one year as it returned to the first week of August in 2011, opposite the WGC-Bridgestone. When the WGC event expanded to about 80 players in 2002, the Reno-Tahoe Open's field was reduced to 132 players.
