From Ernie’s blog: As you can probably imagine it’s hard for me to put any kind of positive spin on things when you’ve just missed your first cut in a major championship for the best part of seven years. Impossible, really. I mean, what can I say? It’s a major downer. To be honest, though, it makes me even more determined to get my game back to where it was four or five years ago, when I was winning all the time. I’d been working hard on my game leading up to the Masters. Weeks like this…well, they just make me realise I have to keep working even harder. That’s the simple truth of it. * * *

I just chilled-out with the kids all day on Saturday, basically tried to take my mind off golf for 24 hours. Then on Sunday morning I was ready to go. We took a flight from Augusta down to Hilton Head, where I’m playing in the Verizon Heritage Classic this week. I can’t let two bad rounds knock me off course. Augusta was super-tough and I didn’t perform, but it’s just two days’ golf. Overall I genuinely believe that my game is in as good a shape as it has been for some time. I’m feeling pretty good with a club in my hand; all I care about now is converting it into some good scores.
