Aloha from New Orleans.

Last week was the Verizon Heritage in Hilton Head, S.C. Harbour Town Golf Links was a great course, and the tournament was put together very well. Harbour Town really is was one of the classic courses that we get to play on Tour. It's probably one of the shortest, with really beautiful tree-lined fairways.

As for my play, I've still been struggling with my driver, but I've been hitting my irons really nicely. This week we're in New Orleans for the Zurich Classic, and I was able to get fitted by Titlelist for a new shaft in my driver. It seems like with the new swing I've been trying to implement, all of my misses with the driver are going right. So after talking with my swing coach and my caddie, both suggested that my driver might not be right for my new swing. The boys at Titleist got me fitted with a new shaft for my driver and I've taken it out on the course and it feels great.

My experience last week and the beginning of this week in finding a new driver leads me back to the importance of club fitting. Fortunately for me, Titleist has a great Tour trailer, so we've got club fitting at our fingertips. But even for the weekend warriors out there, getting fitted for clubs, and drivers especially, is extremely important.

Like I said, we're here in New Orleans this week. I absolutely love this tournament because there is always great food and a lively atmosphere. I'm really excited about my new equipment. Hopefully, that translates into me hitting more fairways and shooting some lower scores. It's a new start every week out here and I'm looking to make the most of that in the Big Easy.
