Awesome day!2009-10-12 Really happy with finishing 4th last week. I didn't really think that after that bad start on thursday. But, I accomplished my goal of only looking forward, not dwell on the past. It went well this time:)
Learnt a lot from the experienced and great players I played with in Madrid. Thongchai Jaidee has the best attitude I've seen and that's the reason he has won so many times. He hits the ball great as well, but he is always happy on the course and it looks like he loves every minute out there. Jimenez played nicely as well. He has a special aura around him, he looks like a matador and is so great with the crowd. His game is very good and his short game must be among the best in the world.
Flew late last night over to Portugal to play the Portugal Masters at Oceanico Victoria Golf Club in Villamoura.
Madrid is a nice place but Villamoura is incredible. The beach is five minutes away and the golf course is one minute away. Best of both worlds.
I had two goals today. The first was to re-energize myself to get ready for this week. The second was to not play golf. The second one was pretty tough since we are this close to the golf course...
Got a great deal at this hotel and the hotel pool looks amazing...
Headed down to Villamoura marina to have a look if we could find anything to do to get away from the golf course...we found a dolphin safari trip!
Cruising out from the marina
Cool animals...Then we headed for the caves down by the beach...
Here is the "lion's rock"
On the way back to the marina, we saw Christiano Ronaldo's summer house, pretty nice!
After that I tried to find some other activity other than golf...the gym was the first thing I could think off.
Just ordered room service with Mikko. He is still happy after his second place finish yesterday. It made him secure his card for next year and he really deserved the great finish.
