Canceled last year because of the pandemic, The Dick’s Sporting Goods Open is back this summer and celebrating it’s 50th anniversary.

Golf and sports fans alike are no doubt excited about the return of one of the biggest events in the Southern Tier. This year’s tournament takes place the week of June 28 – July 4, with a purse of $2,050,000.

Miguel Ángel Jiménez is the first formal commitment for the 2021 event, and first visited the Southern Tier in 2016.

He is currently ranked 4th in the Charles Schwab Cup Standings of the 2020-2021 wrap-around season.

Jiménez had two victories in 2020 and closed the year with five Top-10 finishes in just 13 starts. Miguel holds the title as the Oldest Winner on the European Tour when he won his national Spanish Open, at 50 years and 133 days old. In 2020 Miguel also holds the record for the greatest number of European Tour tournaments ever played by a Professional at 710.
