WHAT DO YOUR PARENTS THINK ABOUT.
WHAT YOU'VE ACHIEVED, AND WHETHER OR NOT YOUR THE SAME PERSON YOU WERE BEFORE ALL OF THESE EVENTS

STARTED TO HAPPEN, WHICH HAVE THRUST YOU INTO THE PUBLIC EYE.

ANNIKA SORENSTAM

WELL I HAVEN'T REALLY ASKED THEM THAT QUESTION.

PETER KESSLER

I'VE BET THEY'VE TOLD YOU ANYWAY THOUGH RIGHT.

ANNIKA SORENSTAM

WELL THEY LOVE TO COME AND WATCH ME PLAY. YOU KNOW THEY LOVE TO COME OVER HERE AND SEE MY SISTER AND I PLAY GOLF, I MEAN THEY LIVE GOLF.

FOR THEM GOLF IS 24 HOURS A DAY SO YOU KNOW I'M JUST HAPPY THAT THEY CAN COME OUT AND WATCH US AND WHEN IT COMES TO BEING MYSELF, OR BEING THE WAY OR THE WAY I WAS MANY YEARS AGO, I THINK I'M PRETTY MUCH THE SAME

I MIGHT HAVE CHANGED MY ATTITUDE A LITTLE BIT ON THE GOLF COURSE BE A LITTLE MORE CONFIDENT MAYBE BUT I THINK WHEN WE LEAVE THE GOLF COURSE COMING HOME, MY MOM SAYS YOU KNOW, LITTLE ANNIKA DO THIS AND SO FORTH SO SHE TREATS ME THE SAME ANYWAY.

PETER KESSLER

HOW IMPORTANT IS IT FOR THE 2 OF YOU, AND I'M ASSUMING, THAT CALLAWAY EXPECTS YOU TO OCCASIONALLY SHOW

UP FOR WORK. HOW IMPORTANT IS IT FOR YOU 2 TO GET AWAY FOR THE EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME THAT YOUR ABOUT TO DO IT FOR.

ANNIKA SORENSTAM

YOU MEAN THIS LITTLE VACATION I'M HAVING?

PETER KESSLER

YEAH THE LITTLE 6 OR 7 WEEKER COMING UP.

ANNIKA SORENSTAM

WELL YOU KNOW LIKE PATTY WAS SAYING I THINK IT'S VERY IMPORTANT TO GET A

BREAK FOR WHAT YOU DO. I LOVE GOLF BUT I CAN'T DO IT EVERY DAY. YOU KNOW I WANT TO BE FRESH WHEN I COME OUT TO A TOURNAMENT, AND THE MORE YOU PLAY I THINK THE BREAKS NEED TO BE LONGER, CAUSE I JUST DO SO MANY THINGS WHEN I'M ON THE ROAD AND

YOU KNOW EVEN THOUGH WE HAVE 6 OR 7 WEEKS OFF IT'S NOT JUST WATCHING TV OR PLAY CARDS OR SOMETHING. THERE'S OTHER YOU KNOW THINGS I DO WITH MY SPONSORS AND YOU KNOW WE TRY AND WORK OUT AND ALSO I TRY AND PRACTICE

AND BE SHAPED FOR THE COMING TOURNAMENTS. SO IT'S NOT JUST RELAXING IT'S KIND OF A LOT OF PREPARATION WORK BUT ALSO MAYBE A FEW CATCHING UP THINGS TOO.

PETER KESSLER

I HOPE YOU ENJOY IT BECAUSE IT'S BEEN GREAT TO HAVE YOU HERE

ANNIKA SORENSTAM
