The Big Easy report

This week we face the longest golf course ever in a major championship – a record that seems to have been broken quite a lot in recent years, but that’s the way the game’s been going, I guess. Anyway, the number three course at Medinah has been stretched to 7,561 yards and plays as a tough par-72. When we were last here, for the 1999 US PGA Championship, I didn’t have a great week. But that doesn’t have any effect on how I feel about this week’s tournament. I know this golf course. I know what you need to do. And, as I’ve said in my recent reports, my game has come along nicely in the last month or so.

I see this morning that I’ve got a really nice draw for the first two rounds; playing with Sergio Garcia and Freddie Couples. They’re both good friends of mine and I always enjoy playing with both of them. Like I say, it’s a nice draw for me. I’m really looking forward to getting on that 1st tee.
