Aloha from Scottsdale!

I just finished the West Coast Swing. As much as I love this part of the Tour, it's nice to be done. It was particularly crazy this year because of the media attention that came with playing basketball with President Barack Obama, as well as the tremendous amount of friends and family that came out to support me during these past six events.

Last week was my first time to play in Los Angeles at the Northern Trust Open at Riviera Country Club. It was a great event at one of the best venues in golf. I wasn't able to make the cut, but I made four more birdies in the last event of "Birdies for Juniors." That brought the total to 68 birdies, which means $6,800 for the Hawai'i State Junior Golf Association from Waikoloa Beach Resort and myself. Thanks to everyone who has followed the project and supported us. Hopefully next year's "Birdies for Juniors" can be even bigger and better.

Originally, I'd planned on playing this week's event in Mexico. But after playing four weeks in a row and looking ahead to the rest of the season, I decided it was better to take a few weeks off, and get rested and recharged.

For most of the next few weeks, I'll be home with my wife, Kristy, in Scottsdale. Since Dec. 18, I've only been home one weekend, so it will be nice to be here and sleep in my own bed. This weekend I'm going to Florida to see my swing coach Sean Folley to work out a few kinks and get my swing straightened out. The following weekend, Kristy and I will be going skiing in Sun Valley.

One new thing I'm doing this year on Tour is Twitter. It's a great way to keep in touch with friends, family and fans while I'm on the road. For those who haven't heard of it, Twitter is a Web site where you can sign up to "follow" me. You will receive periodic updates from me about my scores, Web site updates, and behind the scenes things that are going on. You can sign up at www.twitter.com/ParkerMcLachlin.

Since I'll be taking a few weeks off from the Tour, that means a few weeks off from Postcards. But I'm looking forward to catching up with you all again after the Transitions Championship in March!
