Hello, everyone! I cannot believe it's nearly the end of February as I write this. I hope you have all been well and walking your walk! More on that in a little bit.

First, a little house cleaning to let you know what has been going on for the last month and who I have walked with on the PGA TOUR. At the Farmers Insurance Open, I followed San Diego native Charley Hoffman, who finished 38th. Charley is such a great guy, with an amazing hear. Each year, the Charley Hoffman Foundation hosts two big pro-ams to raise money for the various charities they support. Early in the season, his first pro-am takes place in Las Vegas during the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. Hoffman, a UNLV grad, treats Vegas like a second home. For those that may remember, Charley donated his entire paycheck for that event this season to help with the recovery efforts from the Las Vegas shooting. His second annual pro-am takes place at Torrey Pines on the Monday of the Farmers Insurance Open. He and his wife Stacy do so much for charity and have such wonderful hearts. It's always a pleasure for me to get to spend time with them.

While we missed the cut at the Waste Management Phoenix Open (Smylie Kaufman) and AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am (Hunter Mahan), I had a wonderful time following those two class acts on Thursday and Friday.

A week after Pebble Beach was the Genesis Open at famed Riviera Country Club. I had the pleasure of walking with Bryson DeChambeau there. He finished 41st.

After Los Angeles, the PGA TOUR moved back east into Florida for The Honda Classic. I was thrilled to be re-united with Rory Sabbatini, the 2011 winner of that event. Sabbatini had a good week and finished tied for 17th.

That brings me to this week, where I am about to head to Mexico City for the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship. I will be with Rickie Fowler this week.

So, that brings everything up to the present. I look forward to seeing as many of you as I can on the road. It really is an incredible treat for me to get to see so many of you out there.

In closing, keep walking your walk. Certainly, I don't mean it literally. Walking the walk is a thing of the spirit. We all have what we have. Of course, we all strive to be our best. But, remember, a happy life isn't necessarily about having the best. Instead, it's about giving your best with what you do have. We should always strive for more, bigger and better. But, what you have at the end of the day is far less significant than the work you put in to get through that day. Keep walking the walk.

Thank you for taking a little time to read my blog or come say "Hi" at PGA TOUR events. I know I say it all the time, but knowing I have so many friends truly is the motivation for me to work hard throughout each of those days I mentioned above.

Keep moving. You will get there. And, when you do, looking back at how you did will be your greatest reward.

I hope to see you all down the road soon!
