Dick's Sporting Goods Open History
The first Dick's Sporting Goods Open was held back in 2007, replacing the now-defunct BC Open. The Dick's Sporting Goods Open is played annually during the summer months at En-Joie Golf Course in Endicott, NY and has quickly risen in status throughout the tour. R.W. Eaks took home the victory in the first Dick's Sporting Goods Open in 2007, netting a score of 17-under par, which was good enough for a three-stroke victory over runner-up Bruce Vaughn. In 2012, this event experienced its first playoff scenario, with Willie Wood and Michael Allen needing extra time to settle the score on the course. It was Wood who ultimately came out on top that year in one of the most memorable tournaments to date, helping to further the reputation for all kinds of drama and excitement from one year to the next.

Dick's Sporting Goods Open Fans
Golf is a wonderful sport that is difficult to master, which is why the pros are so impressive when you see them in person. Not only can they hit gargantuan drives off the tee, often exceeding the 300-yard mark, but they also have pin-point precision in their short games. But even though it's the internationally known golfers who end up being the main draw, it's the crowd that helps to elevate the entire experience, as it's easy to get lost in the buzz of the gallery for all of the crucial moments of a tournament like the Dick's Sporting Goods Open.
