DICK'S Sporting Goods Open events will begin on June 28 and finish on July 4 with the final round and trophy presentation.

It will be the tournament's 50th anniversary.

Karedes said while this year will be different, he's hoping it brings a sense of normalcy back to the community.

"This isn't how we expected our fiftieth anniversary, but we're going to celebrate," he said. "We're going to take what's been given to us. We're going to follow the protocols, we're going to adapt because of the pandemic and the regulations set forth by the state, and we're going to ask for everybody's patience and understanding as we bridge to 2022 and get back to the DICK's Sporting Goods Open that we all know and love."
