Dick’s Sporting Goods Open


John Huston won his first Champions Tour title in just three starts.


MARK WIEBE WAS RIDING A WAVE of bogey-free golf after a victory at Rock Barn two weeks before the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open. Coming into the final round he had a two- stroke lead so you had to like his chances. But things are seldom that logical or orderly


in tournament golf and when he bogeyed Nos. 12, 13 and 14, he was on his way to a 71 and he had opened the door for John Huston. Huston fired a comfortable 7-under-par 65 to win his first Champions Tour title in just three starts. Nick Price, who shot a 66, was second followed by Wiebe.


HUSTON OVERTAKES Huston, one of the longer drivers on the Champions Tour, routinely outdrove Wiebe, and his aggressiveness paid off with four


birdies on the front nine, including two on the three par 5s. On the 553-yard eighth hole Huston hit his second shot to the back fringe, left his eagle putt short but still managed to make a birdie—which made up for a sloppy bogey on the previous hole where he three- putted. Another birdie on No. 9 got him into a tie with Wiebe. Huston birdied two of the three holes that


Wiebe bogeyed to go from a two-stroke deficit to a two-shot lead over Price, who closed to within one of the lead with a birdie on the 15th hole. Huston saved par on 15 after an errant drive, birdied 16 and then stiffed his tee shot on the par-3 17th for another birdie. He caught a little luck on the final hole when his drive barely missed going into a water hazard. ■

“DEFINITELY MOMENTUM IS EVERYTHING IN GOLF AND IT’S DEFINITELY A GREAT FEELING TO WIN.” – John Huston

Golf Course


Let’s hear it for George Johnson. Mr. Johnson was the owner of the Endicott-Johnson Shoe Company. He loved golf and thought his employees would love it, too, if they just had a chance to play. So in 1927 he built the En-Joie Golf Club so they could take up the game. He hired Ed Moran, who drove a steam shovel at a local quarry, to build his course and he subsidized golf equipment and lessons for his employees. The club hosted what became known as the PGA TOUR’s B.C. Open for many years and the players enjoyed the course and the relaxed, friendly atmosphere. In 1998 golf course architect Michael Hurdzan renovated the layout and now both professionals and amateurs alike will find an enjoyable course.
