Last week was spectacular. I was able to enjoy some of my favorite things with my favorite people in the world. The first picture is my parents, my sister, Laura, and Alicia and me standing under a rock formation called Alum Cave in the Smokey Mountains. The second picture is a cloudy view near the top of the Alum Cave trail on the way to Mt. LeConte. To be in that location with those people was pretty darn special.
I had a solid week of practice last week as well, which is nice because I'm in this week's Web.com Tour event. The tournament is just outside of Pittsburgh. The Steel City is a very cool place, and the final picture is looking over downtown from the top of the Duquesne Incline. I had a fun evening re-exploring the city with my Mom and some good friends on Wednesday.
But now it's time to get down to business. My game hasn't felt great over the last couple of weeks, but if I stay committed to my goals and my process, I know that I can play well enough to compete at a high level. I tee off at 2:14 p.m. in Thursday's opening-round, and I am ready for it. I need to play very intelligently this week and rely on my strengths and trust myself. I can do all of those things.
Please keep it here for nightly updates throughout the tournament. Thank you very much for following me and for your support.
