It is nice to get back into the swing of things down here in Hilton Head. This week we are in South Carolina for the RBC Heritage. This is our first tournament of the year that we have been able to drive to so it was a breath of fresh air to pile everything in the car and head down i-95 yesterday. We had to go to Chapel Hill for some tax stuff so It took us a little bit longer to get down here than normal. We also had a couple of stops to add to the time, but that is okay because I don’t mind spending a little bit more time in my new TRUCK!
Yes, thats right, I am really embracing the redneck side that I have been trying to develop and I broke bad and bought me a truck. I am in absolute love with this thing. While we were in San Antonio for the Valero Texas Open they gave us a Ford F-150 to drive for the week. This was the first time I had ever driven a truck and it was so awesome I had to go and get one myself. I went up to Capital Ford in Raleigh and had my man James Moss find me a F-150 Raptor. He was able to get one to me a couple of days before we left for Hilton Head. Amanda wasn’t sold on the whole idea of me getting a truck but after a couple of days with the Raptor she has come around. Personally, I think she looks pretty hot stepping out of a truck especially with her new hair cut. She’s a hot mom for sure. Boom, brownie points.
It has been a long time since I played Harbor Town, but a lot of the holes came back to me as I was playing my practice round today. The weather was absolutely perfect, but I was exhausted after the first nine. Taking two weeks off from tournament golf will do that to you. I will have my sea legs back by Thursday.
Since the win has given me some security, I have been able to make some short term goals to keep me hungry and focused. The current short term goal is to get inside the top 50 in the world by the end of the Memorial. That would qualify me for the US Open in Pinehurst. As much as I would have loved to play in the Masters this year, I think it would only be fitting for my first major to be in Pinehurst. Especially since I spent so much time playing there growing up. So that is what I will be focusing on these next several weeks.
Tomorrow’s weather is supposed to be brutal so I made sure to get a lot of my work in today. I was a little rusty out there on the course this afternoon but had a great practice session after the round. I am excited to get things rocking and rolling this week.
