Congratulations to Matt Jones on winning the Honda Classic on a very tough course and that opening round of 61 was a pleasure to watch. The PGA Tour moves back to the beautiful island of the Dominican Republic to the Punta Cana Resort and the Corales course.
Driving through the Punta Cana estate takes me back to when I was here back in late 2008. I was taken round the Tom Fazio-designed course, but at that time the grass had just been seeded. Those memories trigger my excitement as we turn up the road and past the practice ground on my left, which is probably where you will be dropped off. But first I have a few people to meet, and as I’m shaking hands I can see the course just behind the pro shop – it’s just tugging at me.
