Winning the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and PGA Championship back-to-back was very satisfying. Although I didn’t hit the ball well at the British Open, I putted beautifully and knew my game was close. I made a few swing changes with my posture and fundamentals and everything came together at Firestone and Southern Hills.

I always rate the year a success if I win a major championship. So capturing my fourth PGA title turned a good year into a great year. For me, the best part of the tournament was walking into the scoring trailer on Sunday and seeing Elin and Sam Alexis. I had no idea they would be there and it gave me chills. It was so special to instantly be able to share my victory with them.

My life has really evolved. In previous years, my mother and father would have been there. But we lost dad last year and mom doesn’t travel to many tournaments any more. I’m so grateful to have Elin and Sam now. Afterward, a friend said, “Congratulations, Dad!” I liked the sound of that.

As I announced last week, I will not play in The Barclays. I fully support the tournament and the new FedEx Cup playoff series, and hope they understand. I need a little break to get ready for the final three events because I think it gives me the best chance to challenge for the title. Plus, I want to be sharp for the Presidents Cup the last week in September.

Next Tuesday, I’ll be in New York to promote my new EA Sports video game Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2008. I’m excited about the new version and hope you will be, too!
