J.B. Holmes is in New York this week, and while he'd probably rather be playing golf in Atlanta, he's doing some cool stuff while he's in town. Specifically: Ringing the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange. According to The Golf Channel's Morning Drive, Holmes took the dais on Wednesday alongside Rand Blazer, president of Apex Systems, an IT firm that sponsors Holmes.
Afterward, Holmes talked with The Golf Channel about the improvements in his game, and — more importantly — his health over this past season:
Holmes said that 2012 was a great year for him considering what he went through in 2011 with brain surgery but it took a lot of time to get back to playing strength and back to a level where he wanted to be. He qualified for the first 3 Playoff events this year and he feels that there is room for improvement. Holmes added that he is no longer on the medications which contributed significantly to his weight gain but he lost a lot of the weight since getting off of the medications.
Good to hear that. Mr. Holmes, enjoy your vacation.
