Another old Washington Square Wizard made a comeback last year. None other than the great Joey Hudoklin. Joey showed up in his old stomping grounds on NYC to show his considerable skills. He capped off the year with a stunning routine at Indian Summer. Other comebacks of note. Bill Wright deserves some credit here even though he never left except for a short time in the late 1980's. His credit comes from the fact that he is now the holder of the record of most years between major titles. 10 years had passed since his US Open victory in La Mirada until he stood on the victory stand at 1996 US Open Fort Collins.
Jeff Krueger worked long and hard to get himself back into shape for a run at some titles after a work related injury put him on the disabled list. Much thanks to him for carrying on so well.
Dave Murphy should have probably been at home or worse, in a hospital bed. Instead, he decided his partners Arthur Coddington and David Lewis were playing so well that he was willing to sacrifice for the common good. One thing about Murph, he's a class act.
