PETER KESSLER
LET'S TALK TO K-U WHO'S CALLING FROM NEW JERSEY. HOW ARE YOU TONIGHT, SIR?

K-U, CALLER FROM NEW JERSEY (MALE):
GREAT. HOW ARE YOU GUYS?

PETER KESSLER
VERY WELL THANKS.

K-U, CALLER FROM NEW JERSEY (MALE):
FIRST I WANTED TO SAY CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR WIN LAST YEAR, CHARLOTTA.

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
THANK YOU

K-U, CALLER FROM NEW JERSEY (MALE):
AND MY QUESTION IS REALLY, I GUESS, YEARS DOWN THE ROAD, WHAT WOULD YOU WANT THE PUBLIC AND THE MEDIA TO SAY ABOUT YOU AS A PERSON, YOUR GOLF GAME, YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS?

SORT OF, IF YOU COULD SORT OF MOLD SORT OF WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN OVER THE NEXT FEW YEARS, WHAT WOULD YOU WANT, SORT OF RETROSPECTIVELY FOR THE MEDIA TO SAY ABOUT YOU AS A PLAYER AND AS AN INDIVIDUAL?

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
AS A PLAYER I WOULD THINK THAT I LOVE THE GAME AND THAT I PLAYED IT WITH MY HEART AND AS A PERSON, TO BE FRIENDLY AND, AND THAT'S WHAT I TRY TO DO AND ALSO THAT THE AUDIENCE OR THE FANS THAT THEY ENJOY WATCHING ME PLAY GOLF.

PETER KESSLER
THAT'S A NICE WAY TO HAVE PEOPLE TALK ABOUT YOU. LET'S SEE WHAT JACQUIE WANTS TO ASK YOU. GO AHEAD JACQUIE.

JACQUIE, CALLER FROM ONTARIO (MALE):
HI CHARLOTTA. I JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT YOU HAVE A LOT OF BIG FANS HERE IN TORONTO AND MY QUESTION TO YOU, TO YOU IS THAT THE DU MAURIER IS GONE FROM, AS ONE OF THE MAJORS, WHAT'S YOUR FEELING ON THE BRITISH OPEN BECOMING THE 4TH MAJOR?

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
IT WAS SAD THAT WE LOST THE DU MAURIER TOURNAMENT BECAUSE I LIKED GOING UP THERE IN CANADA. IT'S A LOVELY COUNTRY TO PLAY. IT'S ACTUALLY A LOT LIKE ENGLAND SO IT'S,

IT'S SAD THAT WE'RE GOING THERE TO PLAY BUT I THINK THE BRITISH OPEN COULD MAYBE BE AS GOOD, BUT WE'LL SEE WHEN WE GET THERE AND PLAY THE BRITISH OPEN THIS YEAR AT SUNNINGDALE.

PETER KESSLER
WHEN YOU, WHEN ONE LOOKS AT THE SCORES ON THE LPGA TOUR RELATIVE TO, PARTICULARLY THE SENIOR TOUR AND THE BUY.COM TOUR, THE SCORES ARE HIGHER ON THE LPGA TOUR. DO YOU

THINK PEOPLE APPRECIATE HOW DIFFICULT THE COURSES ARE BEING SET
UP SO THAT SHOOTING LOW SCORES IS USUALLY FAIRLY DIFFICULT ON THE LPGA TOUR?

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
WELL TO BE HONEST I DON'T THINK THE COURSES ARE SET UP DIFFICULTLY. I THINK JUST THE CONDITIONS BETWEEN THE COURSES WE PLAY IS DIFFERENT. SOME GREENS ARE FASTER THAN THE NEXT WEEK OR THE OTHER WEEK.

MIGHT BE DIFFERENT KINDS OF SAND OR THE AMOUNT OF SAND AND THE FAIRWAYS MIGHT BE SOFTER OR HARDER ON DIFFERENT WEEKS AND THAT, I THINK THAT CHANGES THE SCORE A LOT. I THINK IF THEY TRY TO MAKE IT MORE

CONSISTENT WE COULD SHOW BETTER SCORES. I JUST DON'T THINK THE LENGTH, MAYBE WE COULD EVEN PLAY LONGER COURSES, THEN, IF WE HAVE IT MORE CONSISTENT. THAT, I THINK A LOT OF PLAYERS WOULD LIKE THAT.

PETER KESSLER
BUT ISN'T THAT PART OF THE ADJUSTMENT, TOO, THAT THE DIFFERENT CONDITIONS AS YOU TRAVEL AROUND THE COUNTRY AND REALLY AROUND THE WORLD BECAUSE THE LPGA IS REALLY A WORLD TOUR MORE SO THAN

THAN ANY OTHER ONE.

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
MHMM

PETER KESSLER
THAT PART OF BEING A GREAT PLAYER IS SAYING, OKAY, THIS WEEK WE HAVE THIS SET OF CONDITIONS AND HERE'S HOW I'M GOING TO MANAGE MY GAME TO ADAPT AS OPPOSED TO COMPLAIN ABOUT THE DIFFERENCE FROM LAST WEEK'S TOURNAMENT?

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
THAT'S TRUE AS WELL. I JUST THINK SOME DIFFERENCES ARE TOO BIG THAT WE HAVE AND MAKE THEM A LITTLE BIT MORE CONSISTENT AND, SO THAT WE CAN ENJOY THE COURSE AND NOT JUST HAVE REALLY TOUGH SHOTS BECAUSE OF BAD LIES, SOMETIMES, AND THAT WILL CHANGE THE SCORES IF WE LIKE THE COURSE.

PETER KESSLER
HOW PROUD ARE YOU PARENTS?

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
I CAN'T SAY BUT I DON'T THINK... IT'S A LOT. THEY'RE REALLY PROUD AND THEY LOVE COMING OVER AS MUCH AS THEY CAN. SINCE THEY LIVE IN SWEDEN THEY CAN'T DO IT THAT OFTEN BUT THEY LOVE WATCHING US PLAY.

PETER KESSLER
AND PEOPLE LOVE WATCHING YOU BE HERE TONIGHT.

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
WELL THANK YOU

PETER KESSLER
THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME.

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
THANK YOU

PETER KESSLER
CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR GREAT SUCCESS.

CHARLOTTA SORENSTAM
THANKS

PETER KESSLER
