ABOUT THE The "Ike"
The Ike tournament was founded in 1953 by Daily
News sportswriter Dana Mozley and nurtured through
the years by Mozley and former MGA President
Sands. Although always immensely popular, the
suffered during the late 1970s and early ‘80s after
Daily News dropped its sponsorship. In 1986, the
(with the financial support of MetLife) purchased the
rights to the Ike. With the MGA’s involvement, the
event regained its stature and quickly became the
area’s premier stroke-play amateur event. The Ike
today attracts more entries than any other MGA
championship for individuals. The Ike is Open to
golfers who are members of an MGA member club.
