Hey LI Golfers,
Glad to hear Amy Mickelson is doing well enough for Phil to rejoin the PGA TOUR in time to compete in this year's US OPEN on Bethpage Black.
I know many Long Island golfers are happy that Lefty will be there in just a few weeks going for another Major.
I would not rush to buy US OPEN tix on Stub Hub. From what we hear there is a glut of tix, which will have a tremendous effect on the price. My suggestion, is to hang out in the Jones Beach parking lot or by the Farmingdale LIRR station and pick up tickets from those who will be trying to unload their "extra" tickets. There might even be some of the Trophy Club tickets available at a reasonable price.
I played Oyster Bay over the weekend. I took a lesson with Doug Miller, their PGA Professional and played bogey golf on what was a very well conditioned course. Please write in and let us know the condition of the courses as you play them, so that other Long Island golfers will be able to make a more informed decision as to where to spend five hours, six if you play any Bethpage course, on the weekend.
See you on the tee box.
