I just arrived in Verona, New York today. It's my first time playing Atunyote Golf Course and also my first time in this area of Central New York. It looks like it's going to be a wet and chilly week ahead as the forecast is calling for the chance of rain everyday. In any event, I'm looking forward to playing and I'm sure the groundkeepers are ready to tackle the elements. I had a couple of weeks of really good practice in London. There were even a few days of cool, wet weather during practice sessions so I should be able to adjust to the elements. This is the third year of the tournament and the course opened in 2004. I'll get a good look at the course tomorrow and from what I've heard it's in pristine shape. It will be interesting to see how it holds water!
Shifting gears, just wanted to remind everyone that our next newsletter comes out on Thursday, October 1st. If you are interested in signing up just go to the clubhouse section of my website and you can sign up there.
I'm looking forward to a great week ahead!
Until next time, take care.

I spent the last week at my home in Switzerland and I'm heading over to London later today. I was lucky enough to meet up with my dad for a few days as he was also in Europe on business. It's always great when our schedules actually have a chance to coincide as I don't get to see him or my mum very much throughout the year. I'll be practicing a lot the next couple of weeks and mainly focusing on putting drills.
I also wanted to let everyone know Titleist.com.Australia launched a sweepstakes on Tuesday of this week. You can go to http://www.titleist.com.au and register for the sweepstakes and the chance to play with me in the Australian Masters Pro-Am at Kingston Heath on November 11th. It's a pretty cool prize package including domestic airfare in Australia, accommodations, car transfers, and some Titleist product.
Sorry, but only Aussies are eligible for this pilot contest. However, if this one goes well, we'd like to hold a similar contest in the near future in the States. (I'll keep you posted.)
I'm looking forward to seeing everyone at the Turning Stone Resort Championship and until then take care.
