I'm looking forward to playing again this week at Doral, where I've had good success in the past. It's one of the tougher courses we play, especially when the wind blows. There are some good risk-and-reward holes, so you can get it going if your game is sharp.
Obviously, it was pretty frustrating to lose to Thomas Bjørn on the 19th hole in the first round of the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship. People focus on the bad tee shot I hit, but that's not the only reason I lost. I hit two terrible pitch shots on the back nine and have worked hard to change my release with my chipping. We'll see if it pays off at Doral.
As I've said, my swing is still a work in progress, and it takes time to get comfortable with everything. It's hard to implement all these changes. I just have to keep moving forward.
I'm light years ahead of where I was at the end of last summer. The biggest thing is understanding what shot to hit and how to adjust my ball flight. Thanks to Sean Foley, I have a much deeper understanding of how to do this than ever before.
When will I win again? Whenever it happens, it happens. I'm just going to keep trying to progress.
Pretty soon, I'll be moving into my new home in Jupiter, Fla. I'm excited about that and even more excited about my new practice facility. It's phenomenal. Working with my team, I designed the short-game facility and oversaw its construction. It features four greens, six bunkers with different depths and kinds of sand, a video center and a putting studio. If no wind is blowing, the longest club I can hit is a 7-iron. It's also set up so I can hit shots out of my second-story studio.
I was excited to hear Davis Love III and Jose Maria Olazábal were named Ryder Cup captains. Davis is a great guy, and it will be a bunch of fun to play for him. We've played on many teams together, and he's always been pretty laid back. I'm curious about that -- to see how he leads. Of course, first I have to make the team. Ollie was a tremendous competitor and someone I have the utmost respect for. He's taught me a lot, and I will always be grateful.
I recently spent time at my Learning Center in Anaheim and had a good visit with the kids. It marked our fifth anniversary, and I couldn't be prouder of what we have accomplished.
I did not watch the Academy Awards. The last movie I saw was How to Train Your Dragon. It was a cartoon movie, and I took my kids. It was pretty good!
I wanted to remind everyone that this year's Tiger Jam will be held April 30 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, and I'm excited to welcome Grammy Award-winning artists John Mayer and Keith Urban. Tiger Jam has done a lot of good for my foundation over the years, and I'm looking forward to another great event. That's it for now.
