Hello, everybody! I hope you are each off to a successful start to your summer. I imagine many of you will travel, so be safe. Whatever you do this summer, make it count and make it something you'll look back on with fondness! That's something I try to do each and every day. Of course, some days are better than others, but I always make sure the big picture is bright and clean.

So, as for catching everyone up..

A the Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio in May, I was with the 2015 tournament champion, David Lingmerth. While he wasn't able to pull off the W again, he finished a respectably in a tie for 38th. The following week, at the FedEx St. Jude Classic, I was with Harris English. Unfortunately, he missed the cut, but I loved being with him. The proceeds from the event are so crucial to St. Jude Children's Hospital. Harris has always been giving of his time and money when it comes to kids. At past TOUR stops in Memphis, he has made it a point to get to the hospital to visit with patients. Hearts don't get bigger than his.

At the U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills in New York, I was reunited with my good pal Jason Day. He missed the cut, but it was great to catch up with he and his family.

Even though Jason missed the cut, we still had a great time over the weekend, as we took in a fantastic Broadway show of Hamilton. I had never been to a Broadway show before, so it was quite the special event for me. First class all the way. It reminded me of an old tale. A guy walks up to someone in New York and asks him how to get to Broadway. The local's response was "Practice, man. Practice." So much of that can be said for how we live life. while we cannot rehearse or practice for the events in our lives, we can hone our skills as good people and learn to adapt to even unpleasant situations with pleasant approaches. It's imperative that we all keep working to improve who we are.

At the Travelers Championship last week, I followed Vaughn Taylor. He finished 47th. At this week's Quicken Loans national in Potomac, maryland, I was with Jason Kokrak. Unfortunately, he followed an opening-round 69 with a 4-over 74 in round two to miss the cut.

Next week, I ventured back to White Sulphur Springs, west Virginia, home of the Greenbrier. I'll be with Robert Streb there, who has finished second there in both of his last two starts (2015, 2017). Hoping we can improve on that this week!

So, that's about it for me for now. I do want to wish each of you a nice summer. Whether you're taking vacation, taking classes, working or just hanging out around home, make every day a good one. Days are comprised of what we make of them.

I hope to see you on the road at some point or hear from you via social media. So much of my inspiration comes from what you are all doing. I love knowing I share a world with wonderful people. The good ones far outweigh the not-so-good ones.

Stay cool!
