After a great 2011 season, he has had a tough 2012 with a new teacher, new swing, new management, and injuries. This break from competitive golf has come at a good time because it allows him to rest and heal from his injuries and he is excited about starting up again after the TOUR Championship. He has played pain-free in his last three starts on the PGA TOUR and now that he is pain-free, he is looking forward to really working hard with Butch Harmon on his game.
When it comes to the course setup at TPC Boston, Woodland said that it is set up for bombers just as Bethpage Black and Crooked Stick will be in the BMW Championship. East Lake is welcoming to long hitters as well and as a result he will definitely miss not playing in those events this year because he could use his length to his advantage.
Butch Harmon has wanted Woodland to learn how to hit draws as well as hit cuts in order to become a more balanced player especially under pressure. His go-to shot is a cut but Butch has wanted him to learn how to hit a good draw as well and he feels that a lot of great progress has been made.
Notah Begay III has done wonderful work with his foundation and when he was asked to be involved, he said yes very quickly because he always wants to help kids whenever possible. It is a testament to the kind of person Notah is to see the quality of the field today in New York. He is always happy to help Notah with anything.
