More than two years after going through brain surgery, J.B. Holmes is a winner again on the PGA Tour.

Holmes made it harder than he needed to on the final hole at Quail Hollow in Charlotte, North Carolina, until rapping in a three-foot bogey putt for a one-under 71 and a one-shot victory over Jim Furyk in the Wells Fargo Championship on Sunday. 

Holmes finished with a 14-under 274 to earn $1,242,000.

The victory capped a remarkable turnaround for Holmes, who won for the third time in his career.

Robert R. "Bobby" Weaver III, who has Chiari, has been missing since Sept. 5, 2013. The 27-year-old man is disabled and his Chiari may give him a staggered walk.

Seeking an update, the ICA Newsroom called the Newton County Sheriff's Office in Georgia three times today. After going through the sheriff's office automated directory, there was no answer from the department - not even an answering machine to leave a message.

Dear readers,

Today was the 20th board meeting of the International Chiari Association (ICA). It was also the ICA's Annual Meeting and I have some GOOD NEWS to report.

Before I mention some of the things that were discussed, I wanted to write a few things about our all-volunteer, nonprofit organization that I think you will find interesting.
