Scott McCarron Returns to Defend Dick’s Open Title
The defending Dick's Sporting Goods Open Champion Scott McCarron returns to look for a repeat of last year at En Joie Golf Course. McCarron birdied his final three holes last summer to finish with a round of 64 and earn a one-shot win over Kevin Sutherland.
Overall, McCarron won four golf tournaments last year and finished third in the final Charles Schwab Cup standings. So far this year McCarron has a victory in the American Family Insurance Championship and has nine top-10 finishes. He is currently ranked fifth in the Charles Schwab Cup point standings.
In McCarron's win at the American Family Insurance Championship earlier this season he shot an 8-under round of 64 to edge Jerry Kelly by one shot. McCarron notched three consecutive birdies on holes 14, 15 and 16 then earned pars on the final two holes to clinch the win.
