PETER KESSLER
HOW DOES BEING MARRIED AND HAVING A SON HELP YOU PUT GOLF INTO IT'S PROPER PERSPECTIVE AND PRIORITY?

CARIN KOCH
IT'S DEFINITELY HELPED ME A LOT. I'M MUCH MORE IN HARMONY AND I'M HAPPIER. I CAN HAVE A LOUSY DAY ON THE GOLF COURSE, AND I, YOU KNOW, GO PICK UP MY SON FROM DAY CARE AND I FORGET ABOUT GOLF. BEFORE I COULD SIT AND THINK ABOUT IT ALL NIGHT LONG.

PETER KESSLER
HOW GREAT IS THE DAY CARE CENTER, I KNOW THAT YOU HAVE TO PAY A LITTLE EACH WEEK, BUT I KNOW THAT

CARIN KOCH
MHMM

PETER KESSLER
SMUCKERS SUBSIDIZES THE REST. HOW IMPORTANT HAS THAT BEEN TO ALLOW YOU TO LIVE YOUR LIFE PROPERLY?

CARIN KOCH
YEAH, IT'S ACTUALLY SMUCKERS AND STATE FARM, STATE FARM IS THE PRIME SPONSOR FOR IT NOW. IT IS, IT'S UNBELIEVABLE. TONY, WHO'S THE HEAD GUY AND RUTH AND THE KIDS JUST LOVE THEM, AND, AND OLIVER, MY SON, LOVES GOING THERE AND HE CAN'T WAIT TO GO SEE THE OTHER KIDS AND, AND THEY LEARN SO MUCH AND THEY PLAY. I'D LIKE TO HANG OUT THERE JUST TO, TO KNOW WHAT THEY DO ALL DAY, YOU KNOW, BECAUSE I REALLY DON'T, BUT, IT'S, IT'S WONDERFUL. I MEAN, BECAUSE THEY COULD BE A DAYCARE THAT WAS JUST A DAYCARE, BUT IT'S A DAYCARE THAT'S WONDERFUL FOR THEM.

PETER KESSLER
ARE YOU TOUGHER ON YOU THAN ANYBODY ELSE IS?

CARIN KOCH
YEAH... I THINK I AM. I THINK MY HUSBAND HELPS ME A LOT, YOU KNOW, WITH JUST ASKING ME QUESTIONS, NOT MAYBE BEING HARD ON ME OR TOUGH ON ME, BUT JUST ASKING QUESTIONS ON WHAT I WANT TO DO AND HOW I WANT TO DO IT.

PETER KESSLER
WHAT ARE THE THINGS THAT YOU'D LIKE TO GET BETTER AT AND OR CHANGE OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF YEARS?

CARIN KOCH
UM... I THINK IT

PETER KESSLER
IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE GOLF

CARIN KOCH
YEAH UM, EVERYTHING. YOU KNOW, I THINK I CAN IMPROVE ON A LOT OF THINGS, ESPECIALLY WITH GOLF. I LOOK UP TO SOME PEOPLE ON TOUR AND I WANT TO, YOU KNOW, I LOOK AT THEM, LIKE YOU HAD LORIE KANE HERE A WEEK AGO.

I THINK HER ATTITUDE AND THE WAY SHE IS ON THE GOLF COURSE, AND OFF THE GOLF COURSE IS GREAT. YOU KNOW, I, I, I, I HAVE A LOT OF THE SAME PHILOSOPHIES AS SHE DOES WHEN IT COMES TO THE FANS. I'VE NEVER SAID NO TO AN AUTOGRAPH SO FAR AND I, I WON'T EVER DO THAT, SO I, I... I THINK I, YOU KNOW, I JUST NEED TO IMPROVE ON A LITTLE BIT OF EVERYTHING. NOT GET DOWN ON MYSELF, NOT LOOSE IT AND GET MY TEMPER GOING AND JUST REALLY, JUST ENJOY WHAT I DO AND REALIZE WHAT A LUCKY PERSON I AM TO BE TRAVELING THE WORLD WITH MY HUSBAND AND MY CHILD AND PLAY GOLF FOR A LIVING. I MEAN I COULDN'T REALLY HAVE IT MUCH BETTER THAN THAT.

PETER KESSLER
WHAT DO YOUR PARENTS MAKE OF YOU THESE DAYS? THE SUCCESS THAT YOU'VE BEEN, THE CELEBRITY THAT YOU'VE BECOME, THE SUCCESSFUL MOM, THE SUCCESSFUL WIFE?

CARIN KOCH
THEY LOVE IT, YOU KNOW, I, I HOPE THEY DON'T DRIVE THEIR FRIENDS CRAZY TALKING ABOUT IT (LAUGHS) BUT THEY THEY'RE REALLY HAPPY. THEY, THEY WAITED 12 YEARS BEFORE, BEFORE HAVING ME. THEY TRIED FOR 12 YEARS, I WAS KIND OF A LAST MINUTE DEAL FOR THEM, AND, AND YOU KNOW, MY, I WAS MY DADDY'S LITTLE GIRL, AND THEY, THEY JUST LOVED FOLLOWING AND, YOU KNOW UNFORTUNATELY I CAN'T SEE THEM ALL THAT MUCH BECAUSE THEY'RE BACK IN SWEDEN BUT NOW WITH THE INTERNET AND THEM BEING ABLE TO FOLLOW THE SCORES, IT'S REALLY NEAT AND THEY'RE JUST, THEY COULDN'T BE HAPPIER FOR ME.

PETER KESSLER
SO THEY WOULD SAY THAT YOU WERE WELL WORTH THE WAIT.

CARIN KOCH
THAT'S WHAT THEY SAY, YUP. THAT WOULD, THAT WOULD BE THEIR WORDS.

PETER KESSLER
AND IT WAS WELL WORTH OUR WAIT FOR YOU TO COME HERE AND WE APPRECIATE

SO MUCH THAT YOU TOOK THE TIME

CARIN KOCH
THANK YOU. I ENJOYED IT. THANKS PETER.

PETER KESSLER
GOOD LUCK WITH EVERYTHING. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

CARIN KOCH
THANK YOU VERY MUCH

PETER KESSLER
THANK YOU EVERYBODY. GOOD NIGHT.
