The Tiger report

Winning three-in-a-row is a great feeling, especially when two are major championships….One thing I want to say about Hank and I, is that the proof is in the pudding. What I mean by that is we both have worked very hard to refine my swing, but the bottom line is you have to produce. I’m finally producing. You have to take baby steps. You have to do it at home on the range, at tournaments, and then on the back nine Sunday in a major championship. We’ve taken all those steps together.

After I did my press conference Sunday night, my wife and I flew to Houston to pick up a new Labradoodle puppy, then flew home to Florida. His name is Yogi, and he’ll be good company for Taz, our Border Collie. They’ll definitely keep us on our toes.

Hopefully, I can keep it going this week in the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone Country Club, a course I love and have had great success on. After the tournament, Tom Lehman has arranged for the U.S. Ryder Cup team to fly to the K Club in Dublin to spend two days practicing for the match against Europe next month. As far as I know, the whole team is going, so it should be a good chance for everyone to bond and get familiar with the course. I’ve played it about 20 times and think guys should be pretty comfortable. It’s a parkland course with rolling hills and lots of trees.

I thought Tom Lehman did a good job with his captain’s picks in adding Stewart Cink and Scott Verplank to the team. Both have experience and are good putters, and I thought that’s where we needed to go. Some argued he should have chosen younger players to give them more seasoning for the future, but there’s no guarantee those guys will make it back again. Hopefully, we’ll all pull together and play well as a team.
