“I’ve got asked a lot what are your goals for this year and besides winning a golf tournament I really don’t have any. It’s just getting better at what I’m all around with my game and then my earn play, obviously is what’s made me a great player, but improving on my weaknesses, having a day where you make 150 feet of putts and hitting a lot of fairways, that’s something that really this year I have more process goals than in terms of results goals.

“But of course everyone has goals of trying to be on a Ryder Cup or a Presidents Cup, so I’m, I would be lying if I said I don’t have a little fire in my belly after missing out and watching guys that I grew up with playing as a part of Team USA, so hopefully down the road I’ll be a part of that team.”

He has been working in recent weeks on honing his putting technique.

“I think it’s funny that I get given a hard time about my putting and if you add in Augusta last year which didn’t have Shot Link I would have been a positive strokes gained putter. Is it the prettiest? No. But am I productive? Yes. So the days where I make 20-footers, those are the days that I end up putting great round together, because I’m always going to be the guy that’s going to hit 14 plus greens to give myself chances.

“So I got to give a lot of credit to Josh Gregory, he and I spent a lot of time together over the last four, five weeks and really just kind of really just kind of honed in our practice routine, we added in a few new things. I’ve been a great lag putter, but at the same time I left a lot of 20-footers short last year. So we fixed that. Today is a perfect example. I made a couple 20-footers that would have gone four, five feet by, which before I maybe would have kind of cozied them up there. So it’s been a fun process so keep on plotting.”
