I arrived home yesterday and it feels good to be back in Australia. I think I fell into a complete heap when I boarded the plane at LAX. The next thing I knew we were landing in Oz. I didn't realize how exhausted I was until I had the time to actually sleep.
The week at the Presidents Cup was full-on and I enjoyed being a part of the team....of course all except the part where we didn't win the cup. Every President Cup team I have played on has always been a special part of my career and last week was no different. It was a complete honor to be a captain's pick and to play for not only my country but also my childhood hero. Ernie and I got off to a great start on Thursday. I have to say the juices were flowing on the very first tee and I hadn't experienced that feeling for awhile. It was a lot of hard work on Thursday and it felt good to come out on top. Unfortunately the rest of the matches weren't as fruitful. I hit the ball well but came up short in my next 4 matches. It was a week filled with a lot of emotion. The team had a ton of fun off the course and Greg and Frank were great team leaders. We don't have the opportunity to spend time with one another throughout the year so I always look forward to team competition. A lot of ping pong, video games and pool.....! Hats off to Tim and Ryo for having a very good week. Ryo, youngest competitor ever on any President Cup team, has proved, once again, he's got game!
I am really close to firing on all cylinders and being a part of the President Cup gave me the confidence that I have been lacking for a few months. I will practice the next 2 weeks and then head over to Singapore for the Barclays Singapore Open. I have had good results in the past at Sentosa and looking forward to getting back there. Weather on the Gold Coast is perfect so I'm going to enjoy the time practicing, and also catching up on business and my foundation.
I'll be in touch next week.
Until then, take care.
