I know, I know, I have been getting asked about the blog. The golf business just gets a bit crazy sometimes. I have a few things to report. So here we go.....
2012 Professional National Championship - Was a mess! I shot rounds of 79-77 and basically played as poorly as I could! That just happens in this game! Bad timimg on my part since this is such a great event. I now had to qualify for next years event. Go to www.pga.com for the complete results.
Westchester Open - Shot a round of 76 to miss the cut for the first time ever in that event. It was a weird feeling not to be playing in the final 2 rounds. Didnt play that bad, just didn't make as many birdies as I needed to. Go to www.westchestergolf.org for the complete results.
New York State Open - I just love Bethpage Black! As a two-time winner of the event and defending champion my confidence was high going into the event even with my scores as high as they were. I was feeling comfortable with my game and know that it can change in an instant! I shot rounds of 72-73-70 to tie for 4th. I played the last round with Danny Balin who shot a beautiful 66 and eventually won the tourney. Go to www.met.pga.com for the complete results.
Metropolitan Professional Championship - Truned it around with rounds of 65-69 to win this event by 2 shots over Carl Alexander and John Guyton. It was a solid birdie, birdie, birdie finish as well! This also qualified me for the Professional National Championship in Oregon next June. As all of you know this is the route to the 2013 PGA Championship.

Next up is the Metropolitan Open August 21-23 at Plainfield Country Club in Plainfield, NJ. You can check this event out at www.mgagolf.org. Until next time....which will be sooner than last.....fairways and greens!
