Tabuena blog: Putting personal glory aside

November 14: In this latest blog, Miguel Tabuena of the Philippines talks about his determination to put up a strong showing at the inaugural Resorts World Manila Masters where he would like to dedicate to the typhoon victims instead of playing for his own personal glory.

It’s really heartbreaking to watch the news about the typhoon and what the people have to deal with for the next few days. It makes us realize how lucky and blessed we are to live under a proper roof and having food to eat.

For the past few weeks, I’ve been stressing about playing good enough to keep my card and hoping for a good week. Now, I came to realize that many others are facing bigger problems such as finding their family members, losing their houses as well as getting proper food and clean water.

This week, instead of thinking about playing good enough to secure my card, I’ll be playing for God, myself and the people who have lost everything in the disaster. It gives me more motivation to do well because it is definitely something bigger to play for.

I think we should not be taking little things for granted.

I have already made donations to the typhoon victims and I am planning to donate part of my winnings this week, if I can make the cut.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims of Typhoon Haiyan.
