Dear Golf Fans,
I just finished my first round at the Bay Hill Invitational in Orlando. We had a beautiful day and I’m excited about the rest of the week. It is always a great experience to come here and spend some time with Arnold Palmer. I just played in a pro-am with him a few weeks ago and that was a lot of fun as well. I’ve had the privilege of knowing Mr. Palmer for many years but it is great that so many of the younger players get to meet him this week.
This will be my third straight week of playing in Florida. My kids are on spring break next week and we will go on a short vacation. We are all looking forward to that. Then it will be off to Augusta for The Masters. If you haven’t done so already, I hope you sign up to participate in our Foundation’s Masters contest.

I’m excited about my new partnership with Lincoln Financial Group. It is an outstanding company and I am honored to represent them on the PGA Tour. I am looking forward to a long relationship with Lincoln Financial. I’m blessed to have great corporate partners, including Oxford Golf. I’ve been affiliated with Oxford Golf for over 12 years and they keep producing great apparel year after year. The people at Oxford are like family and I love the relationship.
Our Foundation recently made over $226,000 in grants to local charities. We made large donations ($100,000 to Holy Angels) and smaller ones (scholarship money for Loyola College Prep Academy) but they will all have a positive impact on our community and in our future.
I’m excited for the rest of the week. I might watch a little basketball tonight as well, but nothing will beat last night when I watched my friends Phil, Willie and Jace Robertson, (Duck Commanders) on their new TV show “Duck Dynasty.” It was really fun to watch.
Thanks for the support,
