Playing professional golf for a career is not for the weak of heart and certainly one of the most difficult paths to choose in life. Of all the sports in the world playing on the PGA Tour is by far the one that offers the least amount of guarantees for any kind for tenure or security, the motto out here is simply you play you stay. With 150+ spots available each week on the PGA Tour and Nationwide Tour and tens of thousands of players vying for every one of them, it is in every sense of the word pressure galore.So when the cards fall in your favor it is always a blessing and a reason for thanks. For my son- in- law, Brad Adamonis, it is a dream come true after a lifetime of hard work to have the opportunity to play in a U.S. Open and no matter what ,the memory of it all will be great.
Brad has been playing golf his entire life guided by the teachings of his dad David Adamonis every step of the way. David may have lost his battle with cancer on October 10th, 2009 but from a place that none of us will get to know until our day comes he will watch and celebrate this week as Brad lives out a dream that they shared at Congressional Country Club in our nations capitol, The 2011 U.S. Open.
New England Golf Monthly will be at this years Open in force with staff writers and our PGA Tour Photographer, Ken Dennis, will be getting plenty of great shots all week long. Congratulations to Brad and also Jeff Sisk, Tim Petrovic and JJ Henry all who will represent Team New England On The Tour at this years Open.WHAT'S YOUR REACTION?
