PETER KESSLER

LOOKING AT YOU IN YOUR MASTERS GREEN JACKET WITH ENVY IT MAKES ME THINK OF THE LITHOGRAPH THAT YOU HAVE JUST PARTICIPATED IN, THAT YOU AND THE ARTIST HAVE SIGNED AND IF PEOPLE WANT TO PURCHASE THIS AUTOGRAPHED LITHOGRAPH THE PROCEEDS GO TO THE GENE AND MARY SARAZEN FOUNDATION, DON'T THEY?

GENE SARAZEN

THEY SURE DO. LINDA HARTOLD (???) DID THAT?

PETER KESSLER

LINDA HARTOLD, AND SHE SIGNS IT ALSO.

GENE SARAZEN

I HAD TO SIGN SOMETHING LIKE 250 AND UH JUST AS I GOT THROUGH SIGNING, BUT I DON'T LIKE SIGNING WITH A PENCIL. I LIKE A PEN.

PETER KESSLER

I DON'T BLAME YOU.

GENE SARAZEN

AND THIS PENCIL HAD SQUARE, WAS A SQUARE ONE AND IT KEPT HURTING MY FINGER AND I NEVER WENT THROUGH AN AUTOGRAPH LENGTH LIKE THAT ONE. I WOULD NEVER DO IT AGAIN WITH A PENCIL.

PETER KESSLER

THAT'S WHY IT'S GOING TO BE SUCH A COLLECTOR'S ITEM, BECAUSE YOU ONLY SIGNED THE 250 AND YOU'RE NOT GOING TO DO ANYMORE.

GENE SARAZEN

NO NO.

PETER KESSLER

YOU'LL BE WORTH ZILLIONS ONE DAY BECAUSE OF THAT GENE.

GENE SARAZEN

NO MORE.

PETER KESSLER

NOW LISTEN I KNOW WE'RE GOING TO GO HOME IN A MOMENT AND I UNDERSTAND THAT THE GREATEST FEAT THAT YOU'VE ENGINEERED RECENTLY IS IN RENEWING YOUR DRIVER'S LICENSE AT AGE 94. THEY GAVE YOU A 6 YEAR LEASE ON THIS THING SO IT DOESN'T EXPIRE UNTIL YOU'RE 100. CAN YOU GIVE ME A LIFT?

GENE SARAZEN

NO

PETER KESSLER

WELL WHAT NO?

GENE SARAZEN

I DON'T USE THAT, THAT DRIVER'S LICENSE MUCH. MY GRAND SON DRIVES ME AROUND.

PETER KESSLER

YEAH WELL WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH THE LICENSE?

GENE SARAZEN

IT'S A SOUVENIR.

PETER KESSLER

A SOUVENIR! I WANT A LIFT HOME. HOW, HOW DO YOU EXPECT ME TO GET BACK TO ORLANDO, FLORIDA FROM BRASELTON, GEORGIA?

GENE SARAZEN

FLY BACK WITH MR. PANOS.

PETER KESSLER

GOOD IDEA. WHAT'S GIVING YOU RIGHT NOW THE GREATEST JOY IN YOUR LIFE, GENE?

GENE SARAZEN

I WOULD SAY HOSTING THIS WORLD OPEN BECAUSE, JUST THINK OF IT, AT 94 I'M HOSTING A , A GREAT TOURNAMENT THAT SOME DAY IS GOING TO BE A MAJOR.

PETER KESSLER

AND WHAT AN INCREDIBLE THING TO INVITE ALL THE OPEN CHAMPIONS FROM THE FIRST GREAT PLAYER BORN IN THIS CENTURY AND THE YOUNGEST MAN, SECOND YOUNGEST MAN TO WIN A U.S. OPEN EVER STILL.

GENE SARAZEN

YEAH.

PETER KESSLER

GREAT PLEASURE TO BE WITH YOU TONIGHT.

GENE SARAZEN

PLEASURE TO BE WITH YOU, PETER.

PETER KESSLER

THANK YOU. BEST OF LUCK THIS WEEK WITH EVERYTHING THAT YOU'RE DOING.

GENE SARAZEN

WELL I DON'T HAVE TO PLAY THANK GOD.

PETER KESSLER

I UNDERSTAND, NO I UNDERSTAND THAT YOU ARE FIRST ALTERNATE AND THEY MAY NEED YOU, SO WE'RE GOING TO HIT A COUPLE OF SHOTS

GENE SARAZEN

NO I'LL LET MR. PANOS DRIVE FOR ME.

PETER KESSLER

AND BEFORE, BEFORE GENE DRIVES ME HOME, WE'RE GOING TO GO WORK ON HIS GAME A LITTLE BIT. I WANT TO THANK EVERYBODY FOR BEING WITH US TONIGHT, WE'LL SEE YOU NEXT MONDAY ON GOLF TALK LIVE. GOOD NIGHT EVERYBODY.
