Nationwide Preparation

What a week so far! I played with PGA Tour winner and Masters runner-up Len Mattice yesterday in my practice round on Le Triumph GC. A former caddy of The King, Arnold Palmer lugged my bag around the course, telling me legendary tales of "Mr. Palmer."

The golf course is very challenging. With five daunting par 3s, and four long par 5s, the course places a premium on short game. Success this week will require acute iron play and deft touch around the short grass.

I am filled with excitement for tomorrow's opening round. I tee off in the final group at 2:25. If I am able to remain calm and avoid the distractions of leader boards, big names and crowds, I may also find myself playing in Sunday's final group!!
