I'm just about to head over to Augusta National and get some practice in before the Par 3 Contest this afternoon. The annual Par 3 Contest is a long time tradition dating back to 1959. It's been a few years since I've played it so I'm looking forward to having a little fun out there. It's a good way to wind down the day before tournament play begins. The patrons really get into it so it's always pretty loud and a fun atmosphere.

I had a good finish in Houston last week. I'm striking the ball well and feeling more confident in that area of my game. Brad and I have been working a lot on my short game and spending time talking about the basics of putting and not making it too technical. It's important to keep it simple and that's been the main focus.

It feels great to be back at the Masters. I still get goose bumps every time I take the drive in on Magnolia Lane. I never get used to the drive into the clubhouse and it always brings back memories of watching the tournament as a kid with my dad every year. There are so many traditions and it's such a magical place. This year they've constructed a new practice facility with a lot more room for us....great addition and very well done. Well, I'm looking forward to getting out there tomorrow. I'm in the last group to tee off and hopefully the rain doesn't cause any delays. The greens will be cut tonight and in perfect tournament form for the first ball hit tomorrow. My practice rounds have been consistent and putting will be key for a successful round. I need to get going but just wanted to thank everyone for their support....should be a great week.

I'll be in touch soon.
