I don't think there is a more controversial time all year on tour than the U.S. Open week. And, out of all majors in golf, being crowned the U.S. Open Champion sounds the best.




 

It is tournament time.
I wake up excited. But let's stay in the moment, because that's when I play my best. I can't wait to go out there today.



 

I am really excited about this video that came out, because it shows a totally different side to golf.




 

Hello from Phoenix!

This week I am going to talk a bit about my other passion: art.




 

As professional golfers we have such a privilege. Others call it responsibility. I like the word "privilege". Let me explain. With the nature of our job, we get to meet loads of interesting people. Our privilege lies in having the opportunity to raise awareness and motivate them for a cause that needs funding.


 

Next year, I can proudly say – golf is going to be included in the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.




 

So I've just spent a week in NYC. It is an absolute love-hate relationship. As someone who grew up in the German country-side I feel slightly claustrophobic in Manhattan, the rush makes me dizzy and once a day I have to escape to Central Park to breathe in some O2. On the flipside, I love to watch the diversity of people showing off their individuality, I absolutely adore Broadway shows, I get carried away shopping (shocker) and really fancy exploring innovative and alternative restaurants.

 

Hi Everyone!

I came up with the idea to start writing a fitness and nutrition blog every month. There is so much to being a professional athlete and I think sharing some of the insight that I gain by working with some of the best trainers and coaches in the world might be interesting and even prove to be helpful for you.



 

At the beginning of the year I decided to improve my putting, because I wasn’t very happy with it. It lacked consistency week in and week out.




 

Many people don’t realize that golf on a professional level is 90% mental. We all have more or less the same skill level, but the outcome depends on how strong our mind is.
