David Toms returns to one of his favourite events

Twice champion David Toms has always loved playing at the St. Jude Championship in Memphis, Tennessee, and this week is no different.

"It's been a pretty good place for me throughout my career and I've always felt very comfortable playing this golf course," Toms told reporters at the TPC Southwind on Wednesday.

"I seem to drive the ball pretty well and I have always putted really well here.

"We all try to draw on our past experiences, especially the good ones and try to forget the bad ones," added the 40-year-old American, who has finished no worse than tied for 10th in his last five appearances in Memphis.

"I've always had a lot of good memories of this place. I guess they could reroute the entire place and I'd still feel pretty comfortable."

Tournament champion in 2003 and 2004, Toms came close to completing a hat-trick of titles in 2005 before losing out to fellow American Justin Leonard by a shot.

Last year, he slipped back into a tie for 10th after storming into contention with opening rounds of 69 and 67.

A 12-times winner on the PGA Tour, Toms has not hit top form this season despite making 13 cuts out of 13.

"I've been fairly consistent, but I haven't had that hot week yet where everything fell into place and I had a chance to win," he said.

"I've always done something every round where I had it going to give it back. I haven't been able to keep a hot round going yet.

"The key for me the rest of the year is to capitalize on those weeks where I feel like I'm playing well and just try to put it all together," added Toms, who has not won since the Sony Open in Hawaii 17 months ago.

"But I feel good about it and I'm fairly confident in my golf game right now. My short game feels pretty solid."

The St. Jude Championship, the 24th event on the 2007 PGA Tour, starts on Thursday.
