AUDIO: @PGATOUR Player JB Holmes at Deutsche Bank Championship #Boston #FedExCup

 
 PGA Tour Player JB Holmes is feeling pretty good these days.  It was around this time a year ago that he had brain surgery to correct a condition known as "Chiari Malformations."  His symptoms included headaches and vertigo which affected his balance.  During his practice at the TPC Boston Driving Range yesterday JB shared his experiences on and off the fairways and greens with a young local man from New Bedford ~ Scott Underhill.  You see, Scott has the same condition as JB and underwent surgery for the condition as well this past December.  Scott, accompanied by his Mom, were treated to an "inside the ropes" experience from JB ~ one which they told me they would never forget! (Btw they even sat in on Tiger's practice regime with his Swing Coach Sean Foley!)  Also among Holmes' entourage was his Mental Coach Julie Elion with whom he's been working with for about 5 years.  Elion's current client list includes Kyle Stanley and a handful of other PGA Tour Players
JB chatted with 95.9 WATD Sports about his recovery process this past year and his 2012 PGA Tour season and said "looking at the grand scheme of things it was a pretty good year ... I would call it a successful year considering everything I was coming back from."  JB's paired with Seung-Yul Noh and Ryan Moore for the first two rounds of the Deutsche Bank Championship and they tee off today at 12:22 on Tee #1.

PGA Tour Player Tim Clark

95.9 WATD Goldie Bounce Golf "PGA One on One" with PGA Tour Pro Tim Clark calling in from this week's PGA Tour stop ~ The Wyndham Championship at the Sedgefield Country Club in North Carolina.   Tim's overcoming a nagging elbow injury that has hindered his 2011 - 12 seasons but ended up T11th at last week's PGA Championship ~ his best finish in any of  the 2012 Major Championships.  Tim told me that his T11 finish at the PGA was a bit of "a personal victory" and that he was very pleased with the result and feeling some sort of stride heading into the PGA Tour FedExCup Playoffs!   Tim's currently ranked #109 on the FedExCup Points Standings and may even jump a few spots after this week's event too!
