Cheers on that successful host week.
There we go. Nice elevated event. Good fam?
You know, it was, excluding my play.
The event itself was, it's been fantastic.
The golf course couldn't have been any better.
It was fast. We don't normally see it this quick.
And this challenging.
I mean it's reflective on this course today.
And the guys are wanna do much out there.
So, it was nice to have a challenge like that.
And I thank all the players and I really appreciate that.
Next week, at least you'll definitely gonna be off.
We spoke yesterday that you gonna be working on putting
as one of those things.
But how are you going to plan that week out?
Are you pretty fluid with it,
or do you say I'm gonna do an hour of putting
on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday.
How does it work?
As of right now, I'll probably won't start practicing
until part Tuesday or Wednesday.
I'm gonna start training right away.
So I will start training tomorrow,
so getting after it.
Try and put a little bit of weight on.
I'm a little bit light for me right now,
which I don't really like.
I like being a little bit lighter but not quite this light.
So, get in there, start eating a lot
and start training.
I was gonna to ask how you did that.
I'm gonna have to eat little bit more.
It's hard cause I eat a lot already.
So just try and eat a little more and,
and gradually put on, a few more pounds.
Do you feel a difference in your swing,
depending on what weight you are?
I do, and, as a tournament week goes on,
I usually get a little lighter.
And so, a notch on my belt [mumbles]
as I start losing that.
Luckily, it wasn't hot this week,
but also it was cold.
So, it's one of those things where,
where the course of four round tournament play,
I tend to drop a few pounds.
And then if I play back to back weeks,
it tends to be a little bit more than that.
So, eating is always been important.
Protein shakes and still lifting
and still maintaining the muscle mass.
And so those are the things that,
I tried to do for most of my career.
And, right now gotta get back after it again.
And then finally, when you do start practicing again
golf wise, how does that figure out
in terms of your schedule?
You don't start with putting.
I'll work my way back.
Just like always.
Just like what dad always tells me.
That's how I grew up.
It's always putting, chipping and then
progress through the [mumbles]
and then start playing.
So, I'll go back to basics.
I will start with putting
and work on my alignment, my posture.
And look at a few things.
Start chipping, hit a few shots.
Start shaping the golf ball around there
and then gradually build my way out to driver
and start playing.
Enjoy eating loads.
I'm sure that many of us wish that we had that same problem
and could just eat as much as he wanted.
I'm looking forward to seeing you--
You got it, thanks [mumbles]
