HONOLULU, Hawaii. (WGEM) -- Enough is enough.
For Quincy's Luke Guthrie, the proud owner of a PGA Tour card for the first time in his budding career, it's time to return to competitive golf.
And he does so Thursday at the Sony Open.
Guthrie isn't on the mainland this week. Instead, he's spent the better part of the last week in Hawaii with his brother, and now full-time caddie, Zach.
And while working on his game both Guthrie's admit they've spent plenty of time on the beach soaking in the 80 degree temperatures.
Now the focus turns to Luke's profession.
Luke spoke with WGEM Sports by phone Wednesday afternoon and says last year's success has done wonders for his game.
"I think I've become a better golfer, and I think I've become more and more consistent," he said.
"I think there's a belief there and I've always had a belief and confidence in myself, and since I had a good year last year on the Web.com (Tour), I think I have a little more confidence in myself to come out here and know that I can compete and perform on this stage."
Guthrie tees off at 1 p.m. Hawaiian, or 5 p.m. in this part of the country. In his threesome will be close friend and former Illinois teammate Scott Langley which Guthrie admits is an added bonus.
