“It is only a lot easier when you’ve got three months in a row to actually locate your sport and truly build off the last week. Well when I’ve played weeks in a row, I’ve done.
“Every major I have won, I’ve played the week before. My week out in a row is my week, second and next week. It’ll be nice to get going in that tiny stretch”
