En Joie Ready for Dick’s Sporting Goods Open
The 13th annual Dick's Sporting Goods Open returns to En Joie Golf Club this weekend in Endicott. The course is in great condition and ready for many of professional golf's finest all-time performers.
Bart Bryant, the tournament's only two-time winner, is back to defend his 2018 championship. There are five World Golf Hall of Fame members competing this year, including Fred Couples, who won the 1991 B.C. Open. It's his first time back to play at En Joie since 1995.
There are also 22 players with a PGA Tour Champions major victory competing in this year's open. There are 53 PGA Tour winners with 289 total career victories. In addition, there are 48 PGA Champions Tour winners with a total of 232 career victories.
Eight players competing this week earned victories back when the tournament was known as the "B.C. Open". Three of those players are from the region, including Wayne Levi from Little Falls, and Mike Hulbert and Joey Sindelar from Horseheads. In addition, Jeff Sluman hails from Rochester.
Tournament play gets underway on Friday morning and continues through Sunday afternoon. WNBF will provide updates live throughout the tournament both on-air and on wnbf.com.
