As I mentioned a couple of days ago, many of you have asked where you could see my TV work. Well, I have some of the raw footage we shot and I asked my producer from Fox Sports International (Asia) if I could post it — and great news, he gave me the go-ahead!

Hey, guys! Miss me? Sorry I’ve been MIA. It felt really weird not being able to write during the Masters last week, but I literally had no time after working 14-hour (-plus) days as an on-air reporter for Fox Sports International.

Matt Jones told his caddie he was going to chip-in as they walked up the fairway of the 18th hole for the second time that day. Then, he did just that, holing a 42-yard chip (see above) for birdie to steal the Shell Houston Open from 54-hole leader Matt Kuchar.
It was magic for the second time on Sunday on the same hole for Jones.
