Sluman made history by earning the first of his six PGA TOUR titles at the 1988 PGA Championship at Oak Tree Golf Club in Edmond, OK. He played Westchester Country 19 times while on the PGA TOUR.
Its an old-style golf course and just a neat course; I really like everything about the place, Sluman said. I loved it. Its not an overly long course but its challenging because of the green complexes. But its fantastic just being in New York with the New York fans. It will be a wonderful place for the event.
