Hello Everybody:

It's Wednesday evening in New York and the night before our second major of the year gets underway. The U.S. Open is always an interesting atmosphere and this year is no different. The hustle and bustle of New York City has made it's way to Farmingdale, New York! The crowds have been electric since the gates opened at Bethpage State Park early on Monday morning. The New Yorkers have brought something special again this year and it's evident they are very passionate about golf. 2002 was the last year the U.S. Open was played here and it's hard for me to believe I've been on Tour long enough to be back here again! In some respects 2002 seems like it was just yesterday but then I have a look in the mirror and realize some time has passed and I've actually become a better golfer. I am excited to have the opportunity that lies ahead and I look forward to the official starter announcing my name on the 1st tee tomorrow at 1:25pm EST and hearing the New York crowd in the background. Thanks to New York and everyone that is coming out tomorrow to support the greatest game ever played!

Until next time, take care.
