PETER KESSLER
DO YOU HAVE THE DESIRE AND THE FIRE IN YOUR BELLY AND THE POTENTIAL TO PLAY GOOD ENOUGH GOLF TO WIN AGAIN ON TOUR?

CURTIS STRANGE
(LAUGHS)
UM, I THINK I HAVE IT HERE. I DO. DO I HAVE IT IN HERE AND IN HERE TO WORK HARD ENOUGH TO TURN A GAME AROUND, TO GET, YOU KNOW, INTO IT ENOUGH TO GO WIN, BECAUSE I AM 46 YOU'VE GOT TO PUT MORE TIME INTO IT I THINK, BECAUSE

YOU HAVE LOST SOMETHING. YOU DON'T THINK SO BUT YOU HAVE. IF, IF I, IF I COULD ALL OF A SUDDEN GET A YOU KNOW A HEART OF A 25 YEAR OLD, YEAH, BUT I, I STILL WAKE UP EVERY MORNING,

PETER, THINKING I'M A PLAYER. YOU KNOW, I DO THE ANALYST THING AND OTHER THINGS BUT I STILL GET UP EVERY MORNING AND THINK I CAN PLAY.

PETER KESSLER
DO YOU FEEL LIKE YOU LIVED UP TO YOUR POTENTIAL? AS A PLAYER.

CURTIS STRANGE
I DON'T KNOW. I DON'T KNOW. YOU KNOW THERE'S, THERE'S TOURNAMENTS THAT GOT AWAY, THERE'S TOURNAMENTS THAT UH THAT UH I STOLE. I THINK JAY SAID IT BEST. I THINK YOU ALWAYS, AS A COMPETITOR, I DON'T CARE WHAT SPORTS

YOU PLAY AS A COMPETITOR, YOU ALWAYS THINK YOU CAN DO MORE. YEAH. I WAS DISAPPOINTED IN THE LAST TEN OR TWELVE YEARS. VERY MUCH SO, BUT... CAN'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT.

PETER KESSLER
STILL THINK OF YOU AS A PLAYER AND AN ANALYST AND A CAPTAIN SECOND?

CURTIS STRANGE
YEAH, YOU KNOW THIS YEAR IS INTERESTING. I, I DON'T KNOW. I GET MIXED. IT DEPENDS ON WHAT I'M DOING AT THE TIME BUT I, I LIKE I SAID I CAN STILL GET UP EVERY MORNING THINKING I'M A PLAYER BUT I THINK THE ANALYST ROLE IS, IS TAKING OVER.

I TAKE THAT VERY SERIOUSLY, AND I HOPE, HOPEFULLY PEOPLE THINK WE DO A DECENT JOB.
