“I also look at it from a perspective which I didn’t do most of my career, that I have a chance to play going down the road. A few years ago that wasn’t the case.

“I’ve been in this position many times unfortunately. Just kept fighting hole by hole, shot by shot and trying to make some birdies, which I did not do. I made one eagle, but that was about it.

“I was just off, it happens. I’m off and I got a chance to have the week off tomorrow and this week to do a little prep, a little practicing, some training, be at home and all positive things.
