Met.PGA Championships

Today is the first round of the Met PGA Championships.  The entire crew started before the crack of dawn.  We have lights on mowers so we can start early.  We needed to, there are over 150 players for both days. 
We mowed and rolled greens, mowed  fairways, tees, and approaches hand watered greens and tees as well as hand rake all the bunkers.  The guys did a great job today.

If you get a chance tomorrow swing by and watch the finals. They have score boards and it gets pretty exciting toward the end. There are also some very talented players. Danny Balin is the pro from Burning Tree. He is tied for the lead after shooting 66 today. Danny has also qualified for the PGA Championships that will be held later this month at Atlantic Athletic Club. Who knows he may be giving Phil a run for his money.  Not only are the players playing for there championships the top fifteen advance to the national qualifying tournament to try and qualify for next years PGA Championship.
