Jay spent the off season at his home in Wildomar, California, practicing at Bear Creek CC, working with his coach, George Pinnell and traveling to visit friends in New Mexico and Las Vegas. Jay is excited about the 2011 season after finishing 17th on the 2010 Money List. He has signed a contract to play Yamaha golf clubs and has been impressed with the look and performance of the clubs.
