Dear Michelle

Day 165 without playing golf

Dear Michelle,

So this is how it’s going to be. Everyone is watching your every move. Everyone is writing and commenting — ad nauseam.

This past weekend it was “the drop.” Next week, or the week after, it will be something else.

I hope you have Tiger’s cell phone number. He knows the road you’re traveling. He would be a great sounding board and give you good counsel.

Here’s what I would tell you.

Keep things as simple as possible on and off the golf course. Find a routine that works for you. Surround yourself with good people who give you lots of support. Learn how to ignore the ridiculous distractions. Play golf with the joy of a 16-year-old and have some fun along the way.
