  Muirfield Village to play shorter, have slower greens for Workday Charity Open Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio, will be a busy place the next two weeks. The PGA Tour is staging back-to-back tournaments at the same venue for the first time in 44 years and the golf course will play different for each e vent. First up, it’s the Workday Charity Open, a tournament added on the fly to the PGA Tour schedule. It’s a replacement event for the John Deere Classic in Illinois, which was canceled due to COVID restrictions. The Workday is the first of consecutive weeks of play at Muirfield Village – the Dublin Double, if you will.

Police in New York have launched an investigation after a flagpole at a memorial honoring five firefighters who died in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks was cut down by vandals.

The challenge for the PGA Tour is to make it feel different to the players who will be in Dublin, Ohio, the next two weeks.For the first time in 63 years, two PGA Tour events are being held on the same golf course in consecutive weeks.

Police would not disclose the nature of the message, but did reveal that an eagle figure attached to the flagpole was found next to a toppled sign at the St. Mary's Parish Center about a half-mile away.

"These two locations mean so much to Washingtonville and the larger community," New York State Assemblyman Colin Schmitt, whose district includes the area, said in a press release.

Washingtonville Mayor Joseph Bucco said the village will replace the damaged flagpole and a $3,000 reward is being offered for information about the incident and the suspects, the Times-Herald Record reported.

The memorial features a semi-circle of granite monuments honoring five members of the New York City Fire Department – firefighters Mark Whitford, Bobby Hamilton and Gerry Nevins, Batallion Chief Dennis Devlin and Lt. Glenn Perry, the newspaper adds.
