2010-02-18 I’m proud to announce the winner of the signed Royal Trophy shirt. The lucky winner is ”Victor Campbell University” who correctly guessed or figured out that Alex coach was (of course) Mike Holder. Because of the great interest in the competition another shirt from the Royal Trophy (without autographs) will also be sent to "Blake Sattler". The winners will be contacted by mail shortly.
Over and out!
2010-02-18 Really tough day on the course yesterday getting beat badly by Ogilvy. BUT, never give up is the saying huh!!!??? I learnt a lot and I know what to work on. Now, I'm looking forward. WGC Match Play is a fantastic tournament and I want to play again. So, I have to keep working.
The European Tour Productions made a little story about my "blogging". They followed the whole day and I think we got some good shots in between the bad ones:) It wil be out next week on the "European Tour Weekly" show and I will link to it when it's up.
They gave me some good tips on what film cutting program to use too so the future is looking good!
Got probably the biggest, coolest, meanest, most useless, hardest to park, slowest to accelerate, most fuel drinking, most American car I've ever driven. But, overall I like it a lot!!! To bad I only get to use it for two days. Decided to take a few days off from golf and fuel up on some motivation and inpiration up in Vancouver for the Olympics. I'm so excited! Can't wait. Priority nr. 1 are the Swedish Hockey games. But, today we are training here in Phoenix and I couldn't wait to get up and work out. Found some aggression-combined-with-motivation-to-get- better fuel to make me get up before 6 AM.
I love these kind of cars. Looks so old school American mid-west.
See you in Vancouver!
Hope you are all good! Ante is now picking the winner of the "Royal Trophy shirt contest". Winner will be up soon.
2010-02-17 Practice day nr 2 today. Played nine holes with Soren Kjeldsen and Mike Weir. Was really interesting to see how they played. They are very simliar except for the fact that Kjeldsen turns the ball both ways and Weir hits a constant draw. But they swing pretty similar and manage their way around the course similarily.
I like the "all-afternoon-Family Guy-treatment"! Funniest show ever.
Snow up the top. I love this place. It's so quit and calm. Make me feel so at ease. Nice.
Over here, the club makers and suppliers of other golf related stuff throw equipment at you. It's awesome. Got a new mini mini club which should improve your ball striking. I changed balls as well this week to the softer one. It spins more with the shorter shots but goes a little shorter with the driver. Feels good though with the new grooves.
Gotta sleep! Big day tomorrow. I'll give you more details around the tournament later on. Really tired now. All the best to you guys!
2010-02-16 For once, I'm trying to not stress and to save energy for the tournament. It's going pretty good actually. Came in to Tucson yesterday and this tournament, the WGC Accenture Match Play, is the coolest tournament EVER! They give us a free room which is unreal. They give us a free car (which apparently they do at every PGA Tour event). It's all crazy!!! I thought we were super spoiled on the European Tour and we are but here it's just mad!
Packing again and leaving Phoenix. I might go back there after this week. It was awesome there. I'm gonna miss that car too.
On the road down to Tucson. Such a nice landscape in the evening.
Came to the room here in Tucson and turned on the Golf Channel and it's so weird hearing they talk about the tournament we are about to play...
...even weirder when they talk about you...
Colin spend a lot of time in America when caddying for Goosen. Now he is back and liking it...I hope he likes it with me too:)
The course, Ritz Carlton at Dove Mountain is sooooooo good! Crazy greens and just overall perfect! Played nine holes with Camilo Villegas and he was pretty impressive. Straight hitter and really strategic on the course. I'm so not strategic, I leave that up to Colin. Then I played through Vijah Singh. He was funny to watch. He must have taken 7 hours to play the practice round today. He hit 6 drives on the hole I passed him on. He hit about 30 chips on the previous hole. I guess he wants to get to know the course. It's great seeing and learning from the best. What they all have in common is that they leave nothing to chance. I'm learning...
Feels like a dream having a car for the week and it's sweet one too.
Gym and relax...should be a good night...wow my evenings are eventful...:)
Glad you guys like that shortgame video! What kind of videos do you guys want?
2010-02-15 Me and Niklas on the green.
Just came to the hotel here at Dove Mountain for the WGC Accenture. So tired after a few hours of driving. I could be the worst long time driver ever. Anything over an hour and I want to go to sleep...
Hope you enjoy the video!
