It\'s been a busy week but fun and informative. First I had the opportunity to spend
some time with Camilo Villegas - the \"Cobra\" - and while it was a lot of work we had
time to talk about some of the things that he does in preparation for a tournament.

Camilo is a very mature 24-year-old and has a great outlook on life and golf. When
he was asked about Harbour Town and the tough conditions, he replied that, \"Yeah it
was tough but it was also a lot of fun.\"

If we had asked a lot of other players the general response would have been much
more negative.

The lesson to be learned here is that you can\'t do anyting about playing conditions:
you take what Mother Nature is dealing out and make the best of it. There\'s no use
in getting down and complaining because everyone else is playing in the same

We also spoke about No. 10 at Augusta, where you need to draw it around the corner
to take advantage of the down slope, and he told me that in a practice round the guy
he was playing with doesn\'t like to draw it. This other player hit five tee shots
trying to draw the ball and none of them drew! In fact, they all wound up in the
tree line on the right side!

And this lesson simply means that as a player you have to play to your strengths.
Don\'t try to hit shots that you are not comfortable with nor shots that you have not

As players we all can get consumed with swing mechanics, weather conditions, and
trying to hit the perfect shot. Ben Hogan once said that he only hit four-to-five
shots a round exactly how he wanted! If the best players in the world don\'t hit
every shot perfect then why does the average player expect to?

The goal is to minimize the error percentage, not hit it perfect every time.
