Hi everyone. I'm writing from the Tokyo Haneda airport after my 10th season as a professional golfer comes to an end, with more lows than highs, but completed nonetheless. I have eight weeks of vacation time ahead, though I'm not sure I deserve it!

Hello everyone,

First of all, forgive me for taking so long to update the blog, this week has been my first week off since the end of June. There were nine weeks in a row of competitions and tournaments, something I'd never done in my entire 10 years as a professional golfer. Until this summer, 4 or 5 weeks was my record of consecutive tournaments, with the imminent risk of ending up badly with my caddie, but that time was beyond my control seeing as how my PGA Tour card was in serious danger.

Hi everyone. I'm writing again from up in the air in the plane on the way back from Malaga to New York, after having spent a week of R&R in Marbella with Alice and the kids. What a pleasure to able to return to the Costa del Sol, we hadn't gone since October of last year and had been missing it quite a bit! 

Hi everyone! Today, I'm writing you from up in the air on the plane back to the US, where I'll be playing the next four weeks. It's a shame to have to miss the BMW Championship at Wentworth, the flagship event of the European Tour.

Hi Everyone!

Allow me to start my blog entries backwards this week, so I'll begin by telling you all about Hilton Head, one of the regular tournaments of the PGA Tour that I was looking forward to playing this year. Everyone spoke so highly of the RBC Heritage: that it's a beautiful place (an island in South Carolina just 3 hours in car from Augusta), that the Harbour Town Links course is incredible (designed by Pete Dye which has nothing to do with what you normally see on the PGA Tour: short, narrow, in the middle of a forest right next to the ocean, with constant strong winds), that it's a very relaxed atmosphere after the Masters week, etc. Last year, even thought they invited me to play, I wasn't able to participate because it overlapped with the Spanish Open at El Saler, so there was lots of anticipation.

Hi everyone! I'm writing to you from up in the air on my last flight of the week, final destination, Miami. Since I had a stroke of bad luck (no pun intended) and my seat is broken and won't recline, I've decided that since I'm not going to be able to sleep, I'll kill some time by writing my third blog entry.
