Brad Adamonis of Cumberland, RI placed 93rd on the money list in 2008 earning over $860,000 his first full season on the PGA TOUR thus retaining his TOUR card for the 2009 season. But, 2009 saw Brad slip to 157th position with earnings of only $337, 961. Brad’s father lost a long battle with cancer in early October of that year taking a toll on this talented player from New England.
Most of Brad’s time will be spent on the Nationwide Tour this year polishing his swing and game. His first event coming up is the season opening Panama Claro Open then he moves on to Bogota, Columbia for the Bogota Open.
While Brad failed to qualify for the Farmer’s Insurance Open at Torrey Pines in late January, he felt good about his swing. “I felt good about my ball striking but not playing too much this winter, my flat stick, (putter), and short game are a little rusty. Overall, I’m feeling pretty good about my swing and game.” Adamonis said during an interview on the myNEGM LESSON TEE Internet/Radio Show recently.
Stay tuned for updates on how Brad is doing on The Road Back for Brad Adamonis.
Good Luck Brad!!!
