PETER KESSLER
COLLEGE DAY PICTURES?

CARIN KOCH
OH, I DON'T KNOW WHERE YOU FOUND THOSE.

PETER KESSLER
WE'LL CUT THOSE OUT OF THE READER. LET'S SEE WHAT

CARIN KOCH
THANKS

PETER KESSLER
JOE IN CALIFORNIA WANTS TO ASK YOU. GO AHEAD JOE.

JOE FROM CALIFORNIA
HI PETER. HI CARIN. HOW YOU DOING?

PETER KESSLER
HOW ARE YOU, SIR?

CARIN KOCH
20:HI JOE

JOE FROM CALIFORNIA
I'M DOING GOOD. I'VE GOT A QUESTION FOR YOU ABOUT THE BRITISH OPEN BEING A MAJOR NOW. WHAT DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THAT IN RELATION TO THE WOMEN'S TOUR?

CARIN KOCH
I THINK IT'S GREAT FOR THE EUROPEAN TOUR TO NOW HAVE ONE OF THE MAJORS. I THINK THAT'S THE WAY IT SHOULD BE WITH US PLAYING GREAT COURSES OVER IN, IN BRITAIN AND YOU KNOW, US PLAYING SUNNINGDALE THIS COMING SUMMER. I THINK THAT'S, IT'S REALLY GOOD FOR THE EUROPEAN TOUR. I THINK A LOT OF GOOD THINGS ARE HAPPENING FOR THE EUROPEAN LADIES TOUR RIGHT NOW WITH THE SOLHEIM AND, AND THE, THE BRITISH OPEN.

PETER KESSLER
WHAT KIND OF A BALANCE WILL YOU PLAY BETWEEN THE TWO TOURS THIS YEAR? WILL THEY SEE YOU OVER IN EUROPE ENOUGH TO MAKE IT INTERESTING?

CARIN KOCH
YEAH, I'M GOING TO PLAY PROBABLY THREE OR FOUR. I USUALLY DO THAT. I WOULD LOVE TO PLAY MORE BUT IT'S VERY HARD WITH THE, YOU KNOW, WITH THE, ALL THE, THE SPONSORS AND THE TOUR, THE RANKINGS OVER HERE, IT'S VERY HARD TO, TO PLAY BOTH FOR ME. I THINK IN THE COMING YEARS I'LL PLAY MORE AND MORE IN EUROPE.

PETER KESSLER
LET'S CHECK IN WITH SCOTT WHO'S 13 YEARS OLD. GO AHEAD SCOTT.

SCOTT 13 YEAR OLD CALLER FROM FLORIDA
HI. GOOD EVENING.

PETER KESSLER
HOW ARE YOU?

CARIN KOCH
HI SCOTT.

SCOTT 13 YEAR OLD CALLER FROM FLORIDA
GOOD. HOW ABOUT YOU GUYS?

PETER KESSLER
DOING GOOD. THANKS FOR CHECKING IN WITH US.

SCOTT 13 YEAR OLD CALLER FROM FLORIDA
YOUR WELCOME. THANKS FOR HAVING MY, THANKS FOR TAKING MY CALL.

PETER KESSLER
YOU'RE WELCOME.

SCOTT 13 YEAR OLD CALLER FROM FLORIDA
UM, MRS. KOCH, WHAT IS THE BEST ADVICE YOU COULD GIVE TO JUNIORS THAT WANT TO MAKE IT TO THE NEXT PART OF THEIR GAME?

CARIN KOCH
I

SCOTT 13 YEAR OLD CALLER FROM FLORIDA
THE LEVEL. NEXT LEVEL.

CARIN KOCH
TO THE NEXT LEVEL.

SCOTT 13 YEAR OLD CALLER FROM FLORIDA
YEAH

CARIN KOCH
I THINK THE MAIN THING IS TO HAVE FUN WITH THE GAME. HAVE FUN WITH GOLF. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A TEACHER THAT MAKES IT SIMPLE FOR YOU AND THAT YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH AND THAT YOU LIKE THE THINGS YOU WORK ON, AND ALWAYS WORK ON YOUR SHORT GAME. ALWAYS TRY TO GET TO THE NEXT LEVEL AND THE NEXT AND THE NEXT WITH YOUR SHORT GAME.

PETER KESSLER
LET'S GO AHEAD AND SEE WHAT DENNY FROM OREGON WANTS TO ASK YOU. GO AHEAD DENNY.

DENNY FROM OREGON
CARIN, THANKS FOR TAKING THE TIME TO BE WITH US. WE LOVE YOU OUT HERE IN PORTLAND, AND I WANTED TO ASK YOU, WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE COMING DOWN THE STRETCH ON SUNDAY, GETTING READY TO WIN A GOLF TOURNAMENT SINCE IN AMERICA WE DIDN'T GET TO SEE THE BROADCAST OF THE CHRYSLER VICTORY. TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT IT AND WHAT DOES THE TROPHY LOOK LIKE?

CARIN KOCH
THANKS FOR CALLING, DENNY. I LOVE PORTLAND TOO. I LOVE, THAT'S ONE OF MY FAVORITE STOPS ON TOUR. THE FEELING ON SUNDAY I THINK IS THE FEELING OF BEING A LITTLE NERVOUS AND HOPEFULLY A GOOD NERVOUS, WHICH IT WAS, LIKE I SAID EARLIER ON THE SOLHEIM CUP AND AT CHRYSLER, WHEN I FINALLY GOT TO WIN A TOURNAMENT, I FELT REALLY WELL PREPARED, LIKE WE TALKED ABOUT EARLY IN THE SHOW, ALSO. I FELT LIKE I COULD REALLY DO IT AND THINGS WENT MY WAY THAT, THAT SUNDAY.

PETER KESSLER
WHAT WOULD BE THE BASIS FOR, AS YOU MENTIONED A FEW MINUTES AGO, PLAYING MORE IN EUROPE AS THE YEARS GO BY?

CARIN KOCH
MY SON HAVING TO GO TO SCHOOL. THE WAY THINGS LOOK RIGHT NOW, I WILL PROBABLY HAVE TO GO BACK TO SWEDEN WHEN THAT HAPPENS, AND IN SWEDEN YOU DON'T START SCHOOL TILL YOUR SEVEN, SO I HAVE A FEW YEARS, BUT YOU KNOW, ME AND MY HUSBAND, WE'RE KEEPING OUR DOORS OPEN, IF SOME, SOMETHING COMES UP OVER HERE WE'RE, THIS IS THE COUNTRY OF OPPORTUNITY, SO, WE'LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

PETER KESSLER
COULD YOU HAVE PLANNED IT ANY BETTER TO HAVE YOUR FIRST PRO-WIN BE AT HOME?

CARIN KOCH
OH IT WAS GREAT. IT WAS ONLY, YOU KNOW, TWO HOURS FROM DRIVING DISTANCE FROM MY HOME, SO ALL MY BEST FRIENDS WERE THERE, MY FAMILY WAS THERE, MY IN-LAWS WERE THERE. IT WAS JUST A GREAT FEELING. NO, I COULDN'T HAVE PLANNED IT BETTER.

PETER KESSLER
IS IT HARDER TO PLAY KNOWING THAT THAT'S THE GROUP WHO'S SHOWING UP? PEOPLE WHO HAVE KNOWN YOU FOREVER AND FAMILY AND FRIENDS?

CARIN KOCH
SOMETIMES IT IS. IT WASN'T THEN BECAUSE LIKE I SAID I JUST FELT, I WAS PRETTY CALM, I, I KIND OF HAD A FEELING THAT I COULD DO IT BUT SOMETIMES IT CAN BE BECAUSE YOU JUST WANT TO SHOW THEM WHAT IT IS THAT YOU CAN DO AND I PUT A LITTLE TOO MUCH PRESSURE ON MYSELF SOMETIMES IN THOSE SITUATIONS.

PETER KESSLER
WE'VE GOT ERIC FROM NORTH CAROLINA WANTS TO ASK YOU A QUESTION. HOW ARE YOU TONIGHT, ERIC?

ERIC FROM NORTH CAROLINA
I'M PRETTY GOOD. HOW ABOUT YOU?

PETER KESSLER
VERY WELL THANKS. GO AHEAD.

ERIC FROM NORTH CAROLINA
CARIN, THIS QUESTION IS FOR YOU. I WAS GOING TO ASK YOU, AS OPPOSED TO OTHER PLAYERS ON THE LPGA TOUR, YOU SEEM TO BE IN VERY GOOD SHAPE, AND I WAS GOING TO ASK YOU WHAT IS YOUR WORKOUT REGIMEN?

CARIN KOCH
I UM, THAT'S A GOOD QUESTION, ERIC. I, I'VE, THE LAST TWO OR THREE YEARS I'VE WORKED WITH A GREAT LADY IN, IN SCOTTSDALE CALLED ANGELA SUNBURG BODYSCAPES AND SHE IS VERY MUCH INTO THE GOLF SPECIFIC WORKOUT ROUTINES
AND WE TRY TO DO A LOT OF THAT AND THEN I JUST, I JUST LIKE TO, TO DO ALL KINDS OF DIFFERENT THINGS WHEN I'M HOME. I LIKE TO DO SPINNING AND, AND, YOU KNOW, JUST A VARIATION TO KEEP, AGAIN, TO KEEP IT FUN, BUT, BUT I DO TRY TO WORK ON THE GOLF SPECIFIC THINGS.

PETER KESSLER
ARE YOU ABLE TO DO THE ROUTINE WHEN YOU'RE ON THE ROAD AS WELL? TO STAY FAITHFUL TO IT?

CARIN KOCH
UM... THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS HAS BEEN A LOT HARDER THAN IT USED TO BE. THERE'S SOMETHING THAT KIND OF PULLS ME BACK TO THE HOTEL ROOM RATHER
THAN STAYING AND WORKING OUT. I, I TRY TO DO IT, BUT I, I, I TRY TO DO MORE OF IT WHEN I'M HOME, BUT I, I TRY TO GET A COUPLE WEEKS, A COUPLE OF TIMES A WEEK IN ON TOUR.

PETER KESSLER
