ENDICOTT (WBNG) - The DICK'S Sporting Goods Open announced four former Masters Champions have committed to play in the 2017 DICK'S Sporting Goods Open in August. Bernhard Langer, Mark O'Meara, Fuzzy Zoeller and Ian Woosnam. Langer is the headliner of the group. He won the 2014 DICK'S Open and will make his return to Endicott after a year absence from the tournament. The World Golf Hall of Fame member is the best the PGA Tour Champions has to offer. Langer owns 30 PGA Tour Champions victories and won his record fourth Charles Schwab Cup in 2016.
The other three commits are no slouches either. O'Meara is also a World Golf Hall of Fame member and won the Masters in 1998. He also finished second in the DICK'S Open in 2014. Zoeller is a two-time major championship winner including the 1979 Masters. Woosnam will be inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame later this year. He won the Masters in 1991.
This DICK'S Open is back to its usual weekend this year. Tournament starts Friday, August 18.
