2009 Turning Stone Resort Championship

The Fall Series has begun! The First Round of Competition at the Turning Stone Resort Championship kicks off today in Verona, NY at the Tom Fazio designed Atunyote Golf Club (pronounced uh-DUNE-yote) at Turning Stone. Atunyote is an Oneida Indian word that means Eagle. A field of 132 players are vying for $6,000,000 in prize money with $1,080,000 as the Winners share. Defending Champ Dustin Johnson is teein' it up at 12:35 today and local Cape Cod Touring Pro Mike Carbone is making his bid on the 10th tee at 1:15! BTW it's no day at the beach here in Verona! The current temp is a bone chilling 38 degrees coupled with raw and wet playing conditions! Today at daybreak, pink balloons were launched on the first tee to commemorate National Breast Cancer Awareness Month - now that was really fun! Yesterday's Pro Am was won by KJ Choi and his team with a score of 59. Country Star Trace Adkins and Actor Steven Baldwin finished up in 3rd place with a score of 62!
