Most of the top golfers on the Champions Tour will be competing in this weekend’s Dick’s Sporting Goods Open.  The top three points winners in the Charles Schwaab Standings are among them.  Points leader Kenny Perry, number two Bernhard Langer and number three David Frost are scheduled to tee off in Friday’s opening round.  Defending Champion Willie Wood is back and looking to capture the magic that led him to the Tournament Title last August.

Local favorite Joey Sindelar, a two-time B C Open winner, hopes to vie for the top prize check of $270,000.  Sindelar has been battling injuries and is hoping En Joie can hold some more magic for him this time around.

The field of competitors this weekend includes players who have combined for over 400 PGA Tour victories.  Of special significance is the fact that the Champions Tour will crown its 1,000th winner since the first ever Senior Tour (now Champions Tour) event was held in Atlantic City, N.J in 1980.  The winner of that tournament was Don January who is expected to be on hand Sunday to crown this year’s winner.

One Pro-Am was played today with another set for tomorrow.  Round one begins Friday morning with play wrapping up late Sunday afternoon.  Updates from En Joie can be heard Friday afternoon between 3 and 6 PM as well as reports on both Saturday and Sunday on News Radio 1290 WNBF.
