I am grateful to the many friends and readers who have inquired about when the editing of my book manuscript, Generating Miracles: A Spiritual Adventure on the Champions Tour, will be done and Eye On The Tour will be up and publishing again. It killed me that I wasn’t able to cover The Playoffs and the Tour Championship — what a great story that came out of there with Jordan Spieth proving that you don’t need to be the best at everything in order to be the best — the tremendous Solheim Cup victory for the U.S. team — sorry international readers — and, of course, the somewhat muted but nonetheless important Web.com Championship where fire-hardened achievers move on to the PGA Tour and those that don’t provide lessons in how to overcome major disappointments.
Life events with family that I have had to attend to have gotten in the way of my editing. Plus I started a new business on the side that is going very well. I’m about 20% through the editor’s edits and now see some time freeing back up to get back to work on a regular basis. I am pleasantly surprised at how nuanced some of her suggestions are and how much time I have to devote to considering almost all of them. Careful what you ask for!
Since the Charles Schwab Cup Championship is being played on my home turf here at Desert Mountain Club, I’ll have media credentials for the week and really should produce something in return. I can’t just hang out on the range with a vacuous grin on my face.
Beyond the Schwab Cup, the remaining 80% of the manuscript is too much of a blur to predict when I can begin my weekly routine again and the most significant of those family issues will linger for a while. But rest assured that the blog is very important to me: it’s the reason the I have my weekly radio spot on NBC Sports Radio and the foundation of my forthcoming marketing efforts for the book.
Until then, thank you very much for following the blog. Capturing your interest has been an honor and a privilege, neither of which I take lightly.
