However, that’s not all. Adding on, the 8-time PGA Tour Pro also made sure to disclose how he is not doing very well in the health department. Moreover, divulging his plans a bit more, he said, “Definitely get some rest, I’m pretty beat now from another long week,” while alluding to the recently ended event in Texas.
