Taking It Nice and Easy for Harris

Siem Reap, Cambodia, December 13: Corey Harris from the United States returns to playing competitive golf at this week?s US$300,000 Johnnie Walker Cambodian Open after a hiatus of 12 months.
The American is certainly enjoying a pleasant welcome back to the professional golf circuit after postingĀ  a three-day round score of 69, 65, 69 for a 13-under-par 203 total to head into the final round in tied-second place.
This is his blog from the Phokeethra Country Club in Cambodia.

I took a year off competitive golf, got a teaching job and worked in a pro shop back in the United States.
I was the assistant golf professional, teaching at a club, near my home town.
Actually I was doing that for six months but now that the season has ended, I came back to Thailand where I?ve been based for four years already.
I didn?t play any golf during that time and only started practicing and getting back into shape in October.
So looking at how my scores have been all week, it has been pretty good and encouraging!
Actually, I?ve no expectations and I?m just out there to have a good time. For the first time in a while, I?m enjoying myself at a golf course.
But seriously, I?ve played enough golf in my life to know what I should do and what I should not do.
I just try to stay positive with no expectations. I take the bad shots as they come and I enjoy the good shots even more.
There?s no pressure, whatever happens. The sun still rises every morning and it?s always a brand new day!
