Obviously, this is a pretty special week for me and the Tiger Woods Foundation. We are announcing the formation of a new PGA Tour event called the AT&T National in Washington, D.C. during Fourth of July Week, and I’m honored my foundation will be a part of it. Back in 1997, when we first started the Foundation, it was a goal of my father and I to host a PGA Tour event. I just wish he could have been here to see it. We hope to play the tournament at Congressional Country Club. So far, our discussions have been very positive. As for me playing this year, I’m planning to compete. A lot will depend on the birth of my first child, which obviously takes priority. But right now, my intent is to play.* * *

Golf-wise, it was disappointing not to win the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship. I worked hard to prepare for the event and was playing well, but got off to a poor start in the third round and played catch-up most of the way against Nick O’Hern. I finally caught him, but missed a short putt that would have won the match. Hey, it happens. The most disappointing thing to me is that I didn’t see a spike mark in my line. I’m not making excuses – I hit a poor putt – but the spike mark didn’t help.

Prior to the tournament, I played a fun round at my home course at Isleworth Country Club with John Smoltz and Jeff Francoeur of the Atlanta Braves and Adam LaRoche of the Pittsburgh Pirates. I played their best-ball and I don’t know what the exact total was but I know what the cash number was: Let’s just say I did pretty well.

Next up is the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill, where I’ve had a good success. Arnold has meant so much to this game and I always enjoy competing in his tournament. Following that, I will play in the WGC-CA Championship at Doral, where I’ve managed to win the past two years. Then, I’ll start preparing for the Masters.

During my recent trip to Dubai, conditions were windy and the desert sand was blowing in my face. I decided to wear sunglasses – something I don’t normally wear during competition – and they helped a lot. For the record, they were Nike Golf SIEGE Sunglasses and I highly recommend them.
