John Daly Commits to 2017 Field!

 John Daly Committs to 2017 DICK’s Sporting Goods Open

1992 B.C. Open Champions Returns to Endicott


 

ENDICOTT, NY – The DICK’S Sporting Goods Open is proud to announce the first commitment for the 2017 Event, John Daly.  This will be Daly’s second trip to Endicott since joining the PGA TOUR Champions. 

 

Daly broke onto the professional golf scene in 1991 with a surprise win at the PGA Championship, earning a huge fan base and the Rookie of the Year Award.  His second victory came the next year at our very own B.C. Open, beating out Ken Green and a young Phil Mickelson.  He went on to win a total of 20 professional wins, including two majors, the second at the 1995 Open Championship.

 

“We are grateful to have one of John’s first commitments as he begins his sophomore season on the PGA TOUR Champions,” said Tournament Director John Karedes.  “John’s knowledge of the TOUR and familiarity with En-Joie should once again make him a contender here in 2017.”


The 2017 DICK’S Sporting Goods Open will be hosted at En-Joie Golf Course in Endicott, NY
August 14th – 20th.   Weekly ticket packages are available at DICK’S Sporting Goods stores or online at www.dsgopen.com.  For additional information, please call the Tournament Office at (607) 205-1500.
