Dick’s Sporting Goods Open Canceled This Summer
The Dick's Sporting Goods Open has been canceled for 2020. The PGA TOUR Champions event was scheduled for August 10-16 at En Joie Golf Club in Endicott. Tournament Director John Karedes made the announcement this (Wednesday) afternoon. In a statement from the PGA TOUR Champions the cancellation is due to the impact from the pandemic in the state of New York. This summer's tournament was to be the 50th anniversary of professional golf tournaments played here.
PGA TOUR Champions President Miller Brady said "the health and safety of everyone associated with the PGA TOUR Champions and the global community will continue to be the No.1 priority as the Tour navigates the ongoing health crisis related to the Coronavirus Pandemic."
The PGA TOUR Champions has made some additional schedule changes. Moving into the week vacated by the Dick's Sporting Goods Open will be the Bridgestone SENIOR PLAYERS Championship in Akron, Ohio. That event is scheduled at Firestone Country Club.
John Karedes stated that Dick's Sporting Goods will continue as the title sponsor next year and that the PGA TOUR Champions has committed to the Dick's Sporting Goods Open in 2021. Anyone who has questions pertaining to tickets purchased for this year's event is advised to contact the Dick's Sporting Goods Open office at 607-205-1500.
