A great deal of work and thought has gone into preparing my schedule for 2004, but now it is complete and you are the first to see it. I am now a full member of the US Tour, but that does not mean I am deserting Europe. Far from it.
Th European Tour has always been good to me and I will always repay that debt while I am competing at the top level. I will be competing in 16 events which count on the US Money list and similar for Europe - World Golf Championship events and Majors counting on both orders of merit. The way I have constructed my schedule will allow me to achieve my goals for 2004.
Obviously winning a major is always top of the list, but having moved from 29th to 11th in the world during 2003, I still think there is room for improvement. A place in the top five is not unrealistic and that's what I am aiming for.
Anyway, here is where I will be in 2004 and I hope it fits in with you somewhere along the line. I do value your support and look forward to seeing you during the year. Don't be frightened of saying hello, particularly during practice rounds because when the tournament proper starts I tend to go into my own zone.
Thanks to you all for clicking on to my site and let's make 2004 a year to remember for us all. Good luck.
