WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS (AFP) - Golf's US PGA Tour heads to West Virginia this week for the US$6.5 million (S$8.1 million) Greenbrier Classic, as Swede Jonas Blixt seeks his first victory since hoisting the trophy last year.

The 30-year-old would like nothing more than to get his game back on track after missing the cut in six of his last nine events.

"As a golfer you can never be happy," Blixt said. "Probably 80 per cent of the time I am not happy with how I play and 20 per cent of the time I am happy with it.

"There is no perfect shot in golf. The more I play, I find the more of a struggle it is at times. You are trying to reach where you've been once before, where everything comes to you... instead of you trying to get there."
