PETER KESSLER
ALRIGHT, WE HAD SOMEONE SEND THIS QUESTION IN FOR THE TWO OF YOU TO ADDRESS, IF YOU'D BE SO KIND,

'WE KEEP HEARING IT'S HARDER TO WIN NOW BECAUSE THE FIELDS ARE DEEPER, BUT HAVEN'T THE GREAT PLAYERS ALWAYS RISEN TO THE TOP, NO MATTER WHO SHOWED UP TO PLAY?', DAVID IRWIN.

ARNOLD PALMER
WELL, I THINK UH, WE'RE PROBABLY HAVING MORE VARIETY OF WINNERS NOW THAN WE'VE HAD UH, WITH THAT EXCEPTION OF TIGER DOING AS WELL AS HE'S DOING. BUT UH,

I DON'T SEE ANY DRAMATIC CHANGE IN . IN THE TREND AS FAR AS WINNERS ARE CONCERNED. UH, AND YOU CAN GO BACK TO WATER HAGEN AND SARAZEN AND NELSON AND HOGAN AND UH,

AND JUST FOLLOW HISTORY RIGHT UP THROUGH UH, AND - AND THE GOOD PLAYERS, AS YOU SAY OR THE QUESTION SAYS UH, THEY WIN.

AND IT WILL CONTINUE TO BE THAT WAY. NOW THERE'S GONNA BE PEOPLE THAT ARE GONNA DOMINATE A LITTLE BIT UH FOR WHATEVER THE SITUATION MAY BE .

THE TIGER WOODS. UH, SOMEONE WILL COME ALONG AND BE AS GOOD OR BETTER. AND LOOK AT NICKLAUS, YOU KNOW, HOW GREAT HE WAS.

UH, SOMETHING THAT I OFTEN THOUGHT ABOUT THAT I WOULD LIKE TO SEE . AND, OF COURSE, THIS IS - THE ONLY WAY YOU COULD PROBABLY DO THIS IS ON A COMPUTER, .

AND SO COMPUTERS RUN OUR LIVES ANYWAY SO WE MIGHT AS WELL ACCEPT IT . BUT JUST PUT THEM ALL IN A . IN A COMPUTER AND HAVE A BIG GAME AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

PETER KESSLER
SPEAKING OF BIG GAME, HAVE YOU BEEN INVITED TO AUGUSTA NATIONAL YET BY ITS NEWEST MEMBER?

GARY PLAYER
UH, WHO IS THE NEWEST MEMBER?

PETER KESSLER
THE FELLOW WHO INVITED YOU HERE THIS EVENING, MR. PALMER.

GARY PLAYER
AH, WELL, I MEAN, HE'S ALWAYS GIVING US A GOOD INVITE THERE. BUT LET ME ANSWER THAT SAME QUESTION THAT ARNOLD DID SEEING THE MAN WAS UH ASKING US BOTH TO ANSWER IT. BUT UH .

PETER KESSLER
YOU'LL HAVE TO MAKE IT QUICK `CAUSE WE'RE JUST ABOUT TO GET OFF THE AIR.

GARY PLAYER
YEAH, OKAY. YOU KNOW, I'VE ALWAYS HEARD THE YOUNG PEOPLE SAY .

ARNOLD PALMER
THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE. YOU'RE GOING IN, GARY.

GARY PLAYER
NOBODY .NOBODY WOULD DOMINATE THE GAME TODAY LIKE IT HAD BEEN DOMINATED BY CERTAIN PEOPLE IN THE PAST. AND I SAID, 'WELL, THAT'S A LOT OF NONSENSE.'

AND TIGER WOODS MIGHT BE DOMINATING THE GAME MORE TODAY THAN ANY MAN EVER DOMINATED.

ARNOLD PALMER
IT'S TRUE, TRUE.

GARY PLAYER
THE CREAM WILL ALWAYS RISE TO THE TOP. THE PLAYERS ARE NOT THAT GREAT THAT NOBODY'S GONNA DOMINATE IT ANY TIME IN LIFE.

PETER KESSLER
NO MORE JAPANESE STORIES, IT'S TIME TO SAY 'GOOD NIGHT'. GREAT PLEASURE TO BE WITH YOU AGAIN.

ARNOLD PALMER
THANKS, PETER. THANK YOU.

PETER KESSLER
HAPPY, HEALTHY NEW YEAR TO YOU AND TO YOU SIR.

GARY PLAYER
SAME TO YOU, PETER.

PETER KESSLER
GREAT TO BE WITH YOU. GREAT TO BE WITH ALL OF YOU. GOOD NIGHT EVERYBODY.
