“As with last year, my PGA Tour season gets underway this week with the Nissan Open at the Riviera Country Club in California. In fact, last year this was my first PGA Tour event in more than six months, obviously due to my knee injury putting me out of action. But now, as I did then, I come back to Riviera with high expectations. It’s a golf course that I have won on before, in the 1999 Nissan Open, where I shot 14-under. Also, going back a bit further to the 1995 PGA Championship, I played great here to shoot 16-under for the first three rounds. I feel very positive. * * *

“Anyway, I’m dictating this report on Sunday morning just before I get ready to leave the house at Wentworth and fly out to California. I’m flying out a bit earlier than I would normally, basically so I can spend an extra day or two working on my game. It feels in good shape but, as I said in the introduction to this report, I didn’t get a chance to play as much golf last week as I would have ideally liked. Getting out to the California sunshine will soon put that right, though.”
