By the way, I am starting to feel healthier. Thanks for all of the support over the last few months! I do have some tournament results to report.
At the PGA Professional National Championship in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina at the Dunes and Grand Dunes Resort during the week of June 22nd (this was my first event back since January of 2014) I had rounds of 76-71-73-74 to finish in a tie for 22nd place and miss the PGA Championship by a single shot. That was a close one but not a bad attempt for my first tournament back in 6 months. Here is a link to the results: http://www.pga.com/nationalchampionship/scoring/leaderboard
I then played in the Westchester Open at Metropolis Country Club in White Plains, New York and shot rounds of 73-69-68 to finish in a tie for 3rd place. Its definitely starting to trend in the right direction! Here is a link to the results: http://wcga.bluegolf.com/bluegolf/wcga14/event/wcga147/contest/1/leaderboard.htm
My next stop was the PGA Metropolitan Professional Championship at Brae Burn Country Club in Purchase, New York and Fairview Country Club in Greenwich, Connecticut. The top 10 players qualify for the 2015 PGA Professional National Championship at the Philadelphia Cricket Club. I shot rounds of 73-69-70 to finish in a tie for 5th place and qualify for nest years Championship!

And finally, I just finished 3 rounds at Bethpage Black in the New York State Open in Farmingdale, New York. I shot rounds of 69-71-70 to finish in solo 3rd place. It was a solid 3 rounds of golf on this Major Championship venue. Here is a link to the results: http://metpga.bluegolf.com/bluegolf/metpga14/event/metpga1439/contest/1/leaderboard.htm
All in all, I am very pleased with my progress. I have a few weeks off from the tournament schedule except for a few outings and some pro-members but I am back in action August 19-21 when I tee it up in the Metropolitan Open at the beautiful Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

I promise more blogs to come. You can also follow me on Facebook and Twitter. I look forward to talking again!
