“A few weeks in the past, I harm myself in the ribs, whereas doing weights. I did play 9 holes with pals however I finished as I didn’t really feel significant. So the past two weeks before coming at this moment I barely lifted a club. I hit effectively however didn’t putt too effectively, although I holed some large ones. That putt on 18 from 60 ft had so many ups and downs and twists and the speed was 14. I hit it effectively however was 10-12 ft short. The second putt stopped on the top of the lip. That hurt.”
On his health, he mentioned, “I’m feeling significant. When I came back in the beginning of the yr from India, I used to be like 205 pounds. Working on my health was my purpose for the yr. Eating nicely, understanding, weights; no alcohol and so forth. I came right down to 185, which is what I used to be in my first season on the PGA in 2004.”
