Whaley Gets Exemption for Big Apple

NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. - Suzy Whaley has accepted a sponsor's exemption to play in the Sybase Big Apple Classic at Wykagyl Country Club from July 14-20.
Whaley, who is the head pro at Blue Fox Run Golf Course in Avon, Conn., became the first woman to earn a spot in an official PGA Tour event by winning the Connecticut section PGA Championship in September. By winning that event, Whaley also received an exemption to the 2003 PGA Greater Hartford Open.
'Suzy is the perfect choice for one of our sponsor exemptions and we're excited for her to be in our field,' said Ray Gerosa, tournament director of the Sybase Big Apple Classic. 'This will serve as a great opportunity for Suzy to prepare herself for her play in the Greater Hartford Open the following week.'
