My first two years on the Nationwide Tour I had a few opportunities to win. For some reason I didn't end up winning them. Just knowing that I could win and not coming through got me a little frustrated. Then I just decided to relax a little bit and not get so down on myself on Thursday or Friday, not try to win a golf tournament on the first two days of the tournament.
I can't say enough about the Nationwide Tour. Almost everything is basically the same, just a little bit bigger. Rough is a little longer; course might be a little bit bigger. Stands are bigger, more crowds. But I've got a lot of friends that are already out here. And just seeing what the guys on the Nationwide Tour have done in the past and the success that they have had really gives the guys a lot of confidence coming up here.
I'm definitely happy to be here,.. My goal at the beginning of the season was to finish in the Top 20 and graduate to the PGA Tour. Now that I am here a little earlier than I expected, I've just thought about trying to keep that same frame of mind and just continue to do what I've done the last two-and-a-half months.
This season started off a little shaky,.. I think I missed six cuts in a row, a lot of them by one shot. Then I came up to Canada and the Samsung Tournament and came up with a different frame of mind. I decided to play a little more patient and not get so down on myself. I used that all week and ended up winning a playoff.
A peek inside the city's many nightspots reveals a Shangri-La-di-da of tiny Shanghai socialites in even tinier outfits dancing provocatively with well-to-do Westerners. But while such sights may draw gasps from some people, the truth is that this kind of thing is nothing new for Shanghai, the Orient's original opium-den of iniquity.
