But I think I love this golf course because it reminds me of the course I grew up playing. You have a lot of options off the tee, and greens are undulating and fast. So I'm just comfortable here, comfortable playing this kind of golf. But I feel good. I've had two weeks off after the Ryder Cup and rested up. Last week I practiced up, and it feels nice to get back at it."
