When the PGA Tour realigned its season for next year, several long standing tour stops found themselves on the outside looking in. One of these was the BC Open, which has always been a bit of an underdog, scheduled as it was opposite the British Open. It had been a tour stop for thirty years.
Still, it was a tournament that by all accounts had tremendous community support. And it was held at the club with the best name in golf: The En-Joie golf Club. I was sorry to see it go.
But there’s good news in Endicott, New York. Dick’s Sporting Goods has signed a three year agreement to sponsor a Champions Tour tournament at the En-Joie Golf Club.
Ironic isn’t it. After thirty years of seeing the guys play at the BC Open, Endicott will get to see them all over again on the Champions Tour. A lot of old faces coming home.
