EXCLUSIVE: Jim Boeheim Talks Hoops, Utica, and Golf at Atunyote Golf Club [VIDEO]
The PGA Professional Championship is coming to Atunyote Golf Club at Turning Stone Resort Casino the weekend of June 26th. Just over 300 of the best golfers in the country will be right here in Central New York competing for one big purse of $75,000. Several important people were present at media day for the event on Tuesday, including Syracuse Men's Basketball Coach Jim Boeheim.
Not many know that Boeheim began his career coaching the sport of golf, but decided "there was no money in it." We had the chance to catch up with him and discuss a few things. He spoke very highly about Syracuse's miracle Final Four season this past year. He also spoke about the work that he and his wife Juli do for local communities around CNY, including here in Utica. Luckily, he'd played Atunyote before and was more than willing to give a few pointers. Don't miss the PGA Professional Championship at Atunyote Golf Club at Turning Stone June 26-29, 2016.
