JB Holmes’ wife Sara Holmes must’ve been pretty freaked out about her husband’s brain surgery. Back in 2011, Holmes started feeling dizzy and withdrew from the PGA Tour to get answers and treatment about what he first figured was just an ear infection. He and Sara later learned that it was something called a Chiari malformation, which is too much skull and too little room for the brain. It was causing his brain to get squeezed, and that was affecting his motor skills. Bad news, but he got an operation and had some titanium mesh fitted onto his cranium.
You can imagine how awesome it must have been for JB Holmes’ wife Sarah Holmes when he beat everybody in the 2008 Tavistock Cup, earned $500,000 and bought a house in Isleworth, Orlando. It’s also where Tiger Woods was living at the time, and apparently there’s a lot of other pro golfers living there. I guess the place offers a huge amount of golfing variety? Sara apparently had a heckuva’ time wrenching JB away from his beloved Kentucky, but the weather is better in Orlando than in Kentucky. Apparently JB had played there once in college and made the decision that he’d move there if he ever got on tour and started making the big bucks.
