GHO Renamed The Sammy Davis Jr. Greater Hartford Open In 1973

Sammy Davis Jr. bites his putter after it let him down on the 5th hole of the pro-am of the GHO in 1983, the last tournament played at the Wethersfield Country Club. The tournament, however, would keep Davis's name until 1988 . Curtis Strange won the "Last Blast at Wethersfield" in '83, and the tournament moved to TPC of Connecticut the next year.
