PETER KESSLER
WHEN YOU GOT READY TO TEE OFF ON THE FRIDAY OF LAST YEAR'S WIN, YOU'RE 8 SHOTS BEHIND THE LEADER AND THEN OF COURSE, THREW A LITTLE 64 AT THE FIELD AND FOUND YOURSELF TIED FOR THE LEAD GOING INTO SATURDAY, PLAYING

WITH KARRIE WEBB, OH EXCUSE ME, PLAYING WITH ANNIKA ON THE SATURDAY, SO LET'S GO AHEAD AND TAKE A LOOK AT SOME OF THE HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE SATURDAY ROUND AND OBVIOUSLY YOU WERE AWARE OF WHO YOU WERE PLAYING WITH AND WHO THE OTHER PERSON WAS IN THIS

TRIUMVIRATE THAT YOU NEEDED TO BEAT, AND THIS IS A GOOD, AWFULLY GOOD WAY TO START THE THIRD ROUND, WITH A BIRDIE ON NUMBER ONE.

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
YEAH IT'S KIND OF NICE TO MAKE THE FIRST ONE.

PETER KESSLER
IS THAT A NERVE SETTLER WHEN YOU MAKE A PUTT EARLY?

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
NOT REALLY, IT'S JUST THE THIRD DAY SO IT'S A LONG WAY TO GO.

PETER KESSLER
AND IS THAT GENERALLY YOUR ATTITUDE? IT'S A LONG WAY TO GO, I'M JUST GOING TO STAY CALM

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
YEAH

PETER KESSLER
AND NOT LET TOO MUCH AIR IN MY BRAIN

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
I THINK THAT'S ONE THING THAT YOU HAVE TO THINK OF.

PETER KESSLER
AND THAT WAS YOU AT THE 9TH.

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
9TH HOLE. OH YEAH THAT WAS PAR, I GUESS.

PETER KESSLER
NO THAT WAS BIRDIE AND THEN NOW YOU HAD THREE PUTTED 12 I THINK AND THEN, SO YOU NEEDED A LITTLE UP AND DOWN HERE ON 13 TO SORT OF KEEP THINGS GOING

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
MHMM

PETER KESSLER
DO YOU FEEL PARTICULARLY COMFORTABLE WITH YOUR SHORT GAME?

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
THAT WEEK I DID. YES. AND ACTUALLY MY LONG GAME TOO, MY DRIVER, IT WENT REALLY WELL, AND I JUST, THAT COURSE SUITED MY GAME, IT WAS

JUST PERFECT FOR ME.

PETER KESSLER
YOU LIKE, YOU LIKE STRAIGHT SHOTS

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
YES

PETER KESSLER
HIT AT THE TARGET?

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
YEAH

PETER KESSLER
AND THAT WAS ON NUMBER 14, A LITTLE PAR SAVED. NOW HERE'S ONE THAT YOU'RE NOT GOING TO MAKE.

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
YEAH

PETER KESSLER
DO YOU GET RATTLED IN THIS SITUATION OR DO YOU JUST SAY THEY DON'T ALL GO IN?

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
YEAH, WELL I JUST SAW ANNIKA MISS THAT PUTT SO, I TRIED TO DO IT RIGHT BUT I JUST COULDN'T GET IT RIGHT.

PETER KESSLER
LET'S TAKE A QUESTION THAT WAS SUBMITTED TO OUR WEBB SITE FOR YOU

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
MHMM

PETER KESSLER
BECAUSE IT INVOLVES YOUR FEELINGS ON THE SATURDAY NIGHT, SO LET'S GO AHEAD AND TAKE A LOOK... AND THE QUESTION IS, AFTER 54 HOLES OF THE 2000 STANDARD REGISTERED PING YOU WERE

TIED FOR THE LEAD WITH KARRIE AND ANNIKA. WHAT WERE YOUR THOUGHTS GOING INTO THE FINAL ROUND AND WHAT WERE YOU THINKING ABOUT THE NIGHT BEFORE? WAS THAT A TOUGH NIGHT OR A HAPPY NIGHT KNOWING YOU HAD A CHANCE TO PULL IT OFF?

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
WELL I'M SURPRISED BECAUSE I WAS REALLY CALM AND ALL MY THOUGHT WAS, I CAN REALLY WIN THIS AND THEN AT THE SAME TIME I THOUGHT, OH IT WOULD BE A LOT OF FUN IF I DID WIN AND JUST HAVING THOSE THOUGHTS MADE ME CALM, I THINK, AND I THINK THAT'S WHY I
PULLED IT OFF.

PETER KESSLER
BECAUSE IT SOUNDS LIKE IT FELT LIKE YOU WERE READY TO WIN.

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
YES I DID.

PETER KESSLER
AS OPPOSED TO JUST BEING GRATEFUL FOR BEING IN AT THE POSITION.

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
MHMM

PETER KESSLER
OKAY. LET, LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT SOME OF THE HIGHLIGHTS FROM SUNDAY

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
OKAY

PETER KESSLER
AND GIVE US YOUR THOUGHTS AS THIS THING MOVES ALONG. NOW HERE'S A LITTLE BIRDIE ON TWO. A LITTLE DOWNHILL SLIDER.

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
YEAH, THAT WAS ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT HOLES BECAUSE IT WAS LONG. JUST MAKING A BIRDIE FELT LIKE AN EAGLE ALMOST.

PETER KESSLER
SURE WAS WORKING WELL, THE LITTLE SHOTS.

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
YEAH THAT WAS... A LITTLE EAGLE CHIP.

PETER KESSLER
DO YOU GO FOR THE STRAIGHTEST FACED CLUB WHEN YOU'RE ON THE EDGE THAT YOU CAN HIT? GET THE BALL IN THE GROUND AS SOON AS POSSIBLE?

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
YEAH, TRY TO LAND IT ON THE GREEN AND ROLL IT UP THERE.

PETER KESSLER
AND THAT WAS A LONG BIRDIE PUTT ON EIGHT AND THEN

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
THE 11TH PAR 3. THE PIN WAS TUCKED UP THERE A LITTLE BIT TO THE LEFT, I REMEMBER. I HIT A FAIRLY GOOD SHOT. JUST PULLED IT A LITTLE BIT.

PETER KESSLER
WERE YOU STILL FEELING THE NICE SENSE OF CALM THIS DEEP IN THE ROUND ON THE FINAL DAY?

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
YEAH, AND I WAS LOOKING UP AT THE LEADERBOARD NOW AND THEN AND I SAW THAT KARRIE AND I JUST KEPT A COUPLE SHOTS AHEAD OF EVERYBODY ELSE SO I WAS TRYING TO PLAY MATCH

PLAY AGAINST KARRIE AND HOPING NOBODY WOULD CATCH UP BUT, AND MY PUTTER WAS HOT, I JUST MADE EVERYTHING, AND THAT REALLY HELPED BUT ALSO I THOUGHT THAT, SAME TIME, KARRIE, SHE'S GOING TO MAKE EVERYTHING SHE SEES. I JUST HAVE TO DO BETTER THAN SHE DOES.

PETER KESSLER
NOW SHE HAD HIT IT STIFF HERE ON 15, AND HERE'S YOUR BUNKER SHOT

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
YEAH, I KNEW SHE WAS GOING TO MAKE BIRDIE SO I JUST TRIED TO GET IT CLOSE AND I DID

PETER KESSLER
AND SO YOU DID.

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
(LAUGHS)

YEAH THAT WAS, I THINK, ONE OF THE BEST SHOTS I'VE HIT, EVER.

PETER KESSLER
AND YOU'RE AT THE POINT NOW WHERE YOU KNOW THAT YOU NEED EVERY STROKE

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
YEAH

PETER KESSLER
SO A PAR SAVING PUTT LIKE THAT IS HUGE

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
IT WAS, AND SHE JUST MADE A BOGIE THERE I THINK, OH YEAH, WE'RE THE SECOND SHOT ON 18.

PETER KESSLER
HOW GOOD DID YOU HIT THIS

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
YEAH I THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO GO ON THE GREEN THOUGH

PETER KESSLER
I THINK YOU'RE A LITTLE

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
THAT'S, THAT'S MY REACTION (LAUGHS)

PETER KESSLER
I THINK YOU'RE A LITTLE UNLUCKY NOT TO HAVE IT GO ON THE GREEN

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
YEAH

PETER KESSLER
RIGHT? I MEAN IT HIT SO SOFT.

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
YEAH IT DID. I COULDN'T SEE IT BECAUSE OF THE SUN JUST IN MY EYES, BUT KARRIE HIT A GREAT DRIVE THERE, AND I KNEW SHE'S JUST HAD A SHORT MIDDLE WOOD IN AND, OH THIS IS THE LAST PUTT.

PETER KESSLER
HOW WAS THE BREATHING OVER THAT ONE?

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
IT WAS CALM

PETER KESSLER
YEAH?

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
YEAH SINCE I, OH IT WAS JUST AN AMAZING FEELING, AND THERE'S MY DAD BEHIND TOM. I WAS TEARING UP.

PETER KESSLER
HOW AMAZING TO HAVE HIM THERE THAT PARTICULAR WEEK.

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
YES IT WAS, AND OUR COACH HENRY RICE WAS THERE AS WELL.

PETER KESSLER
AND THAT'S THE HENRY WHO WAS OVER AT ANNIKA'S TONIGHT

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
YES

PETER KESSLER
OKAY. HOW GOOD, HOW DELICIOUS WAS THIS MOMENT FOR THE TWO OF YOU?

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
OH WE BOTH STARTED CRYING WITH HAPPINESS. ME OF RELIEF, TOO. I FINALLY DID IT, AND I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND WHY SHE WAS HAPPY. I FINALLY BEAT HER, YOU KNOW.

PETER KESSLER
DO YOU GET IT NOW?

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
YEAH

PETER KESSLER
TEEL ME.

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
THE FEELING?

PETER KESSLER
WHY SHE, WHY SHE WAS SO HAPPY FOR YOU.

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
NO I WOULDN'T, THAT WAS A JOKE (LAUGHS)

BUT SHE JUST KNOWS I'VE BEEN WORKING HARD AND TRYING TO, SHE KNOWS I'M KIND OF IN HER SHADOW AND I HAVE TO, TO, I'M NEVER GOING TO BE AS FAMOUS AS SHE IS BECAUSE SHE DID IT FIRST. NO

MATTER HOW TOURNAMENTS I WIN SHE KNOWS THAT I HAVE TO DO BETTER TO GET NOTICED. SHE JUST APPRECIATES EVERYTHING I DO.

PETER KESSLER
THAT WA S A GOOD SHADOW BUSTER.

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
YEAH (LAUGHS)
