Endicott, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Once the crowd dispersed after Tim McGraw performed Friday night at En-Joie, crews hit the scene to get ready for the morning tee off.

While some broke down the stage, others picked up trash and began restoring the fairways.

"Right as the concert ended at about 10:30, all the teams got into place, teams that help us turn it into what it is today, a golf tournament," said Dick's Sporting Goods Open Organizer Dave Pessagno. "So from 10:30 last night until 6 this morning, we had about 400 or 500 people that turned this back into a golf tournament from the concert venue, making sure that 18 is playable."

Pessagno said cleanup for Sunday's final round started Saturday afternoon, to make sure the course was spotless for the final day.
