WHY THE DRIV­ING RANGE IS OVER­RATED LOOK AT THE HOLE WHEN YOU PUTT

I’M NOT GO­ING to stop do­ing things I en­joy be­cause I might get in­jured and jeop­ar­dise my ca­reer.That’s said within rea­son of course, but how I broke my an­kle re­ally was quite a freak ac­ci­dent, along with some mis­judg­ment as a rookie surfer.

I HAD FIVE WEEKS off af­ter the Wyn­d­ham Cham­pi­onship in Au­gust in America (I got into that event af­ter fin­ish­ing T-7 at the PGA Cham­pi­onship the previous week) and felt like I needed to de­tach my­self from the game. I’d al­ways wanted to go on a surf­ing hol­i­day to Bali. Two friends were al­ready there, so I booked a ticket on a whim and went there. The waves were too big on the first day, but the next day I was out there at 10am ea­ger to hit the waves.
