“The Cherokee Strip has been a part of my life since my early childhood. I initially fore caddied in the tournament, then later actually caddied for the pros. During college, I always returned to Ponca City to work in the golf shop during the Strip. In the early 90s, I started playing in the tournament with my father. I am now honored to be able to work as part of the staff for this wonderful and historic event.”

“I’ve participated in the Cherokee Strip for as long as I can remember and I’m looking forward to helping plan this year’s tournament. For me, planning the Cherokee Strip is about three things — first and foremost, it’s about raising money for the Opportunity Center, which is a truly great organization. Second, it’s my goal to continue the legacy of a fair and yet competitive golf tournament on a beautiful and historic golf course. And last, but certainly not least, it’s about throwing one heckava good party!”
