Last Couple Weeks

Hi Everyone

While I plant myself on the couch for the next few days watching the Masters, I thought I would take the time to update you all on my last two tournaments.

I had a couple of pretty different weeks on the west coast. Our first tournament the Kia Classic at La Costa Golf Club was a pretty average week. I went into the week feeling pretty good about things. I liked the course except for the greens. I have always struggled putting on Poannua grass greens but I went into the week trying not to think about the past and know that my game was in good shape and my putting had been solid. Well after my first round and watching the ball bounce all over the place, I really had trouble trusting things for the rest of the week. The course on Sunday played the best it did all week. The greens were a bit firmer which made the putting surface smoother. Its the way it should have been set up all week.

So I headed over to the desert Sunday afternoon completely putting the last four rounds out of my mind. I was headed to Mission Hills, a place where I have so many good memories and the greatest moment of my career. It didn't matter how I had played the previous week, I was excited to be headed into our first major of the year.

My preparation before the tournament went pretty well. I felt good about things and was ready. I could feel bad about my game but this course for some reason generally turns my confidence around. I played pretty well the first two rounds and put myself in a nice position going into the weekend. I felt like I needed to just find that next gear over the weekend....sharpen my game just slightly and I would be in with a great shot. I just never managed to find that next level over the weekend. I didn't drive the ball as well as I did the first two days so it was always going to be a struggle. I hung in there pretty well though. I was proud of my patience level and that I didn't play my way out of a good finish. In the end a T-5th was a pretty good effort. I didn't have my best game and the fact that I managed to place so highly I was happy with.

So now I have a couple of weeks off. As I told you earlier, I will more than likely be planted on the couch the next few afternoons watching the Masters. It is by far my favorite golf tournament to watch. When I was a kid growing up watching it in Australia, with the time change I would have to get up at around 5 in the morning to watch it. I would be in my pj's under a blanket on the couch every morning until it finished. I was late to school every Monday morning the Masters finished. When I think about it, it was pretty cool that my parents let me do that. Mum would write a note regarding why I was late and I would get to school around 9.30! lol! Good memories.

So that's it for now, enjoy the Masters as much as I will. Check in with you all soon.

Take care
