I've been too busy playing golf tournaments and working on my game to update my blog! That's really not true, but I have been keeping myself busy. I've played the last four weeks, and I am making some great progress. In the last four weeks I have:
1.) Made it to Saturday at the Traveler's Championship in Hartford, CT. I played poorly on Friday and then struggled again on Saturday, and I missed the secondary cut, but I played a nice round on Friday to make it to the weekend at one of my very favorite events on Tour.
2.) Put together a fantastic effort on a demanding course at the Quicken Loans National just outside Washington D.C. I began the tournament with a triple bogey on my second hole (the 11th) and proceeded to play the 11th hole in seven over par for the week. A great round on Friday had me in the middle of the pack heading into the weekend and despite a cold putter and a few big mistakes, I played hard over the weekend and finished T38th.
3.) Posted four rounds in the 60's (69, 69, 68, 69) at the Greenbrier to finish T29th at the Greenbrier Classic. I hit the ball beautifully for most of the week in West Virginia, and was very close to having a great finish there.
4.) Overcame a double-bogey, bogey, bogey start on Thursday at the John Deere Classic to post four rounds of par or better and a nine-under-par total to finish T44th.
My play is really starting to come around. All areas of my game have shown promise over the last month, and I really feel close to putting it all together.
I'm going to keep playing. I will tee it up next week in Opelika, Alabama, for the Barbasol Championship. I've got some good energy going right now, and I'm excited to keep working and keep playing. There are only four tournaments left this season for which I am currently eligible, but I can make a late-season push and qualify for the Fed-Ex Cup Playoffs. It will take some great play over the next five weeks, but I'm ready for some greatness.
Mostly, I'm just going to keep working hard, keep being the best that I can be, keep having fun, and keep loving life. I'm excited to get after it! Thank you for following me and for your support. Keep it here to enjoy the journey with me!
