"Folks in Rochester are treated to names that they saw at the 1995 Ryder Cup, the 2003 PGA Championship. There's so many guys that played in those tournaments that have come back, said Richards. "It's a real treat for us and the players to be back at Oak Hill."

Rounds one and two are happening Thursday and Friday, round three is Saturday, and the final round will take place on Sunday.
