"You only get out of it what you put into it. If you are a sheep in this world, you're not going to get much out of it."
-- Retief Goosen

This week the PGA Tour continues the Florida swing when it visits Innisbrook Resort outside Tampa for the Valspar Championship. In the 14-year history of the tournament, Goosen has twice been victorious on the Copperhead Course (2003 and 2009), one of only two players to be a two-time winner in the tournament (the other being K.J. Choi).

Unfortunately for the 45-year-old Goosen, his 2009 win was his last on any tour.
