Turning Stone's ambassador spreading word about tourney
He takes the work seriously.
Whether praising Turning Stone's Atunyote Golf Course, chatting up members of the press, teeing off for some of them during Wednesday's media day outing, or persuading his fellow PGA Tour pros to make a stop in Central New York, he goes after everything with great enthusiasm.
"This event, the tournament staff, the tribe ... they're doing everything they can to make this a marquee event," he said. "Every new event has to start someplace, and this is certainly a great start."
The Oneida Indian Nation's brand new golf tournament is part of the PGA Tour's new fall series. It has a purse of $6 million and will pay $1,080,000 to the winner.
