The final round was difficult because of the wind. I played well on the front nine but made 3-putts on 9, 10, and 13. And on 16 I missed a short putt for birdie.
New opportunities this week. My next tournament is the Valspar Championship at Innisbrook Resort in Florida. I drove to Tampa immediately after my round, four hours in the car. I will play this PGA Tour tournament for the first time. It will be my third tournament in Florida in a row.
The Copperhead Course at Innisbrook is a new course for me and later this year I will play other courses in the US I don't know yet. It helps if you know a course very well but it’s not a big deal if you don’t. My caddie and I are used to getting to know a course very well by playing two or three practice rounds. Playing in the majors means playing new courses as well, except for the Masters of course, and you just have to learn your way around a course in a short time.
By the away, the Masters begins in exactly one month.
