Aloha from Houston,

Unfortunately, I've been a bit sick with a stomach bug this week. I got to Houston a day later than expected and finally got out to hit some balls and see the course yesterday.

Last week was the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill in Orlando. For one thing, it was nice to see Tiger back and as I've told you all before, when he's playing it adds a unique excitement to the event.

I wasn't able to play well enough to make the weekend, but I'm really happy for Sean O'Hair, who finished second and led most of the weekend. As many of you know, O'Hair is another guy on the PGA Tour who works with my swing coach, Sean Foley. It's nice to see a fellow Foley student succeed, and it validates my belief in my coach and his strength as a teacher. O'Hair has been working with Foley a few months longer than I have and to see the light ahead is motivating.

I've been working hard on the swing adjustments and am looking forward to seeing them lock into place very soon. It's been a long process, but I'm really making great progress and it's evident each week by the shots I'm executing on the driving range. The last piece of the puzzle is having it all come together for 18 holes on the golf course, and I'm doing a good job of being patient through the process.

This week we're at the Shell Houston Open. I really enjoy the course here at Redstone Golf Club. It's really well-manicured and they have it set up to prepare the Tour players for the Masters in Augusta next weekend.

I'm excited to feel better and get the week started. I hope to report back to you all next week with good news. Thanks as always for the support!
