Hunter Mahan: Looks to improve

Hunter Mahan: Looks to improve

After three events in the new PGA Tour season, American Hunter Mahan can already see how his game has progressed of late.

Of his last eight rounds, six have been below 70 and the other two were even-par 72s as he racked up a tie for 15th at the Farmers Insurance Open before ending joint 16th at the Waste Management Phoenix Open last week.

"I have actually done a couple things that I'm really excited about, and so I'm happy where things are right now and excited about the prospect of the upcoming tournaments and the upcoming year," Mahan told the official PGA Tour website ahead of his preparation for the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

"I take a lot of victories from the last couple weeks. I am always trying to improve and keep getting better and not be stuck in results and I should have done this and I should have done that. This is a game. We play way too much golf and way too many tournaments to be bogged down by one result or one week."

After finishing as the runner-up in 2011, the 30-year-old Californian also has some good memories from Pebble Beach.

"There's no place you'd rather be when the weather's good and you're out playing," Mahan said. "I think it's a special course. I think AT&T has done a great job of making this more pleasing to players and they run a great event and Monterey is fantastic and Spyglass is fantastic. ...

"It's a lot of fun and being a California guy, I always enjoy being in California."

The start of his season has largely focused on attempting to successfully defend the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship, which starts in two weeks.

However he has high expectations for himself and hopes to add to the five Tour victories he already has to his name this year.

"Every day's an exploration - figuring about my swing, and what works, doesn't work," Mahan continued. "Short game, putting. Everything. Strange, as I think of it now. I've been playing golf a long time but I still have a lot to learn about it.

"I'm doing all the right things. I've just got to put it all together at the right time."
