Kenny Perry Commits to the 2014 DICK’S Sporting Goods Open
The PLAYERS Participant & Reigning Charles Schwab Cup Champion Joins an Expected Stellar Field

 

 

(VESTAL, NY) – The DICK’S Sporting Goods Open is proud to announce that Kenny Perry has committed to its 2014 tournament field. The 2013 Constellation Senior Players Championship winner will also be accompanied by 2011 U.S. Senior Open Champion Olin Browne and fan favorite Fuzzy Zoeller.

 

Perry is one of three Champions Tour players in the field at this week’s PLAYERS Championship at TPC Sawgrass. He is following up an amazing 2013 season, taking the Senior Players Championship and U.S. Senior Open in consecutive tour starts before going on to win the AT&T Championship.

Perry has claimed a total of 5 Champions Tour Victories and 14 PGA Tour wins with a total of 134 Top 10 finishes in his career.  He is the current reigning Charles Schwab Cup Winner, after leading the season-long points-based race.

 

Olin Browne commits to the DICK’S Sporting Goods Open with a strong 2014 season start.  He captured his first Champions Tour victory at the 2011 U.S. Senior Open, making his maiden win on tour a Senior Major Championship. Browne held off the challenge of Mark O'Meara on Sunday to prevail by three strokes and become only the fifth player in professional golf history to win on the Nationwide Tour, the PGA Tour and the Champions Tour.  He is currently ranked 18th on the Money List and 21st in Charles Schwab Cup Points. 

 

Champions Tour fan favorite, Fuzzy Zoeller will join us again in 2014.  Zoeller is one of three golfers to have won the Masters in their first appearance at the event (1979). He also won the 1984 U.S. Open, which earned him the 1985 Bobby Jones Award.  He has two Champions Tour victories under his belt as well: 2002 Senior PGA Championship and 2004 MasterCard Championship. 

 

“To be able to further add quality players to our already stellar field speaks volumes about how the players feel about the DICK’S Sporting Goods Open,” said Tournament Director John Karedes.  “We are looking forward to a great week of Champions Tour golf this August.”

The 2014 DICK’S Sporting Goods Open will be hosted at the En-Joie Golf Course in Endicott, NY August 11th – 17th.  For Sponsorship and Ticket information, please call the Tournament Office at (607) 205-1500.
