Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! We have already seen some snow and frigid temperatures in Elmhurst so the golf clubs are accumulating dust as I write. We are gearing up for a busy and fun month of December as we close up the year.
It sure was promising to be in contention this Fall a couple of times. As I mentioned in my last blog, I never went low in a tournament with 5 under par being my best four round total in the 2013-14 season. Well at McGladrey and Sanderson Farms, I managed 11 under par and 10 under par scores, finishing inside the top 10 both weeks. Here’s looking for more of that in 2015. With the fairly new wrap around season, it sure is nice to get off to a solid start, already bettering my last season’s total of FedExCup points.
The short off-season gives me a few weeks to set aside golf to focus on family life. Deuteronomy 6: 5-7 and Ephesians 5:25-26 are at core of my thoughts as I go through each day, well, at least I sure try to have them there. December means some work indoors, workouts with Cory Puyear, a PGA TOUR Board meeting in Ponte Vedra, a few balls into my Full Swing Golf Simulator and some basement putting contests with my sons. They are always negotiating for more strokes. All matches are won on the first tee, right!
Have a great Christmas and watch for me January 15th when I tee it up at the SONY Open in Hawaii. God bless your holidays.
