BACK IN THE U.S. OF A
Posted: 17th June 2009
It's US Open time again and with it come back memories of last year's championship in Torrey Pines, San Diego.
That's where I proved to myself that I had the game to win the second major championship of the season. And after failing by just one shot to get in a play-off last year, I'll be aiming to go one better this time.
I'm really looking forward to my first visit to Bethpage Black on Long Island because what happened last year in San Diego showed that when the pressure is on, I have enough game to cope with it.

After a brilliant holiday in the sun with the wife and kids, it will be back to work for me, at the start of next month.
I'm delighted to be able to show you the photos taken by photographer, Steve Read. Steve has a great website with a photogallery of golfers, including my mates, Darren, Ernie Els and Paul McGinley.
OK, click on the link above and go and have a quick look!
You'll note that despite concentrating, I managed not to stick my tongue out once!
See you soon!

New Year, New Golf Academy?
Posted: 12th January 2009
I've worked really hard in the gym with Dr Steve since the start of the New Year, in preparation for my return to the Race to Dubai season. I'm certainly not resting on my laurels! My next event is the Qatar Masters (22nd January). My Dad took some photos of me in the gym, which have been posted on the Fitness section of the Gallery.
