There have been 2 days on Bethpage Black so far playing the Met Open and there is one round left. I shot scores of 74-70 and am in a tie for 10th place heading into todays final round. The weather on the first day was rainy and windy. It was calm yesterday but still on the misty side. The weather this summer has taken a toll on the condition of the golf course. The rough is not as high and the greens are not as fast as in past years but it is still one of the best tests in golf.
An amateur is leading the field at 71-66. His name is Evan Beirnie and Bethpage is his home course. He is the reigning Metropolitan Amateur Champion.
I play at 10:51 today with a friend of mine named Keith Dicciani. He is the reigning New York State Open Champion which is played every year at Bethpage Black. It will be a good round today as I truly love playing Bethpage. Until tomorrow....think Bridies!
