I am very excited about participating in Bridgestone Open this year. I have won three times (1995, 1996, 1999) and I get along extremely well with this tournament. I am a little anxious about my physical shape because I will be leaving for Japan after playing in Greensboro. However, I will do my best to show the exciting golf game in Bridgestone Open.
