"I love it out here. Definitely beats sitting in class and writing papers. It's been a lot of fun. The travel and the golf hasn't been too much. If I was at school or back home, I basically played or practiced every day. So that's nothing different. Everything has been going really well. Adjusted pretty quickly."
CAREER BEST FINISH:
2nd, 2010 Waste Management Phoenix Open and 2009 Frys.com Open
