Let's start off with the final round of the Met Open.... 81. You can get the full results at www.mgagolf.org. Ok now that that is done I had a few other tournaments since then with some nice results.
The Metropolitan Section had its Championship at the Country Club of Fairfield. I shot rounds of 72-70-69 to finish in a tie for 5th place. What a great golf course in Fairfield, CT. You can get the full results at www.met.pga.com.
We also played the Farley Cup at the Atlantic Golf Club in Long Island. This tournament matches the top 12 Westchester golf professionals against the top 12 from Long Island. This is the 3rd time we have met in the past 3 years and this is the first time that Westchester has lost the match. I had a great match against Mark Brown from the Tam O'Shanter Club. I did get the better of him on this day however winning 3 points of a possible 3 points against him.
Our last event of the season was the Treiber Memorial Tournament of Champions. It is a stableford event which points are given for your score. They are as follows: 0 points for par, 2 points for birdie, 5 points for eagle, -1 point for bogey and -3 points for double bogey or worse. I finished 5th with a total of 10 points for the three rounds. My rounds were 4 points, 10 points and -4 points. The last round was played in the steady wind and rain. Again you can find complete results at www.met.pga.com.
Next week I am off to California for the Mayacama Pro-Member with my partner Ned Zachar. After that the GlenArbor Golf Club will play a ryder cup format against the Mayacama Club. This is always a fun 2 events.
One more thing, check out the MET PGA Notebook that aired on SNY. This is a cool TV show talking about things happening in the Metropolitan Section. Here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D08x4aN0aE4&feature=share&list=UUvTv-UrD9rD67aQkKdutlgw.
