BINGHAMTON (WBNG) - The PGA Tour Champions released its official 2018 schedule on Wednesday. The 2018 edition of the DICK'S Sporting Goods Open starts on August 13, with the opening round on August 17. This year's purse for the DSGO is more than $2 million. 12 Sports caught up with PGA Champions Tour President Greg McLaughlin to talk about how the competition on the tour continues to improve each year.
"There's certainly a lot of better players that are coming out at age 50 that were competitive well into their 40s on the PGA Tour," said PGA Tour Champions President Greg McLaughlin. "I think it is making it a much more competitive tour. You see David Toms, Jerry Kelly, Steve Stricker, who all turned 50 this year and have been very competitive this year on our tour."
