Two-Way Tie at Dick’s Open
There is a two-way tie for first place heading into the third and final round of the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open at En Joie golf Course in Endicott. Scott McCarron and Kevin Sutherland each are at twelve under par and are two strokes up on Jerry Smith, Joey Sindelar and Corey Pavin. Five golfers are three shots back including: Bernard Langer, Scott Porel, Fran Quinn, Woody Austin and Colin Montgomery.
McCarron, who is in second place in earnings on the Tour of Champions this season, fired the most impressive round of the day with an 11-under par 61. Sutherland, who shared the lead with Wes Short, Jr. after the first round , is searching for his first victory on the Tour of Champions.
Local favorite, Sindelar, had the biggest following of the day as he fired his second straight round of 67. The winner of the 1985 and 1987 B C Open, Sindelar could become the first golfer to win at En Joie on both the PGA Tour and the Tour of Champions.
The leaders will be looking behind them as 2014 Dick’s Sporting Goods Open winner Langer looks to make a charge. He leads the Charles Schwab Cups points list and is as cool under pressure as they come.
Golf resumes at 9 AM on Sunday with the tournament leaders going to the tee at 1:35 PM. Hear live reports from En Joie with Roger Neel before and after Binghamton Rumble Ponies baseball which begins at 11:50 AM.
