Funk receives Key to the Village

Since 1989 Fred Funk has made Endicott his home for one week during summer.  He's played in 19 of the 26 pro tournaments at En-Joie in that span and has become the first and only player to reach the $1,000,000 milestone in career earnings at En-Joie.  Thursday, to mark the accomplishment, Endicott Trustee and Deputy Mayor David Baker presented Funk with a Key to the Vilalge.  Baker was accompanied by Dick's Sporting Goods Open Tournament Director John Karedes.

To reach such a major milestone requires coming back year after year.  Funk says that it's easy to do with such a great tournament and such a great community.  He said that as long as he can still play the game, and he has the opportunity to play in the Dick's Open, he's going to make sure he's there.
