09:05 AM ET 07.29 | Carl Pettersson had finished his cookie Tuesday afternoon when the subject at his lunch table turned to the reasons behind his so-far forgettable season on the PGA Tour. Pettersson was in the clubhouse at Sedgefield Country Club, where in three weeks he will be the defending champion of the Wyndham Championship. Beside him lay a brochure with his image from a year ago, smiling with the tournament trophy. A year later, Pettersson is hopeful a return to Sedgefield will re-energize his game the way it did for Greensboro's PGA Tour stop last year. Perhaps the cookie will help. "I've had a rough go of it," said Pettersson, 31, who has missed 11 cuts in 22 starts this year. "I lost 30 pounds after last season thinking I was going to work out and get better. I got worse."
