Newsday Eastern Open

June 20, 2017

Originally called the Long Island Individual Tournament, the local daily paper Newsday took over sponsorship of the event in 1952.  The Newsday Eastern Open was a marathon competition, in some years stretching out to 72 games, and became known as “The All-Star of the East.”  The newspaper dropped out after the 1980 event, and the tournament itself died a few years later.
