Endicott, NY (WBNG Binghamton) In a week, we'll know the leader after round one at the Dick's Sporting Goods Open, but first we have to know all the possible people it could be.

The Dick's Sporting Goods Open finalized its field for next week's tournament on Friday.

One notable addition is 2012 champ Willie Wood, who was added from the alternates list. A few other players join the field as sponsor exemptions.

For tournament director John Karedes though, three big names stand out as the most exciting part of the 2014 field.

"Really to have Kenny Perry, Bernhard Langer, Colin Montgomerie, those three have been battling all year in the Charles Schwab Cup race, and have won a number of tournaments on the Champions Tour this year," said Karedes on Friday. "To have them battle here in Endicott, NY on the En-Joie Golf Course next week, I think is going to be pretty exciting."

There will still be a few more names added next week, as the qualifying round takes place on Monday at the Links at Hiawatha Landing.
