As the 2009 PGA Tour Q-School tournament approaches, I have been preparing my game. There are a few essential components to a successful professional golf career. The first is the continued and ever-improving ability to shoot low scores; the second is unyielding patience and self-belief, especially in the face of challenge and adversity; the third is the financial support that provides opportunities to remain competitive.
As many of my friends are aware, I spent 2008 playing pro golf in Asia. Every few weeks I found myself in a different country. It was a brilliant adventure that required me to constantly learn and adapt to survive. One such adventure took place in South Korea during the Johnny Walker and Heavenland Opens. My camera was rolling and a documentary has been created titled, "Korean Tour Dreams."
In the film, I give you the rare opportunity to travel with my caddy Christine and I, to the exotic island of Jeju; tour street sights and marketplace sounds in the capital city of Seoul; experience simmering, steaming hot bugs as delicacies and play the challenging host courses of the Korean Tour.

As PGA Tour Q-School draws near, I am launching a new fund raising initiative as a means to pay expenses for my coming bid.
