How does the Denver Broncos quarterback, Peyton Manning, feel about the tournament coming to the Denver area?
“I’ve only been here a short time and this is definitely the ultimate sports town, of all sports” Manning said. “Fans love their sports, they love their football certainly and basketball, baseball, hockey and certainly bringing the golf championship here its a big deal and I know they’ll support it very well.”

Former Denver Nuggets guard Chauncey Billups can hardly contain his excitement about Cherry Hills Country Club hosting the tournament:
“Selfishly I think it’s great” Billups said. “It gives me an opportunity to come out and watch and I’ve never watched anything of that magnitude as far as golf is concerned. So, selfishly I’m just very excited I think it’s great for the city, I think it’s great for this club. Obviously, I just can’t wait.”
