PETER KESSLER

THERE WAS A SENSE, AFTER THE SOLHEIM CUP WAS COMPLETED AND THE EUROPEAN TEAM, OF WHICH YOU ARE A MEMBER, WON, THAT, CERTAIN MEMBERS OF YOUR TEAM AND THE AMERICAN TEAM WOULD, PERHAPS, NEVER SPEAK AGAIN OVER AN INCIDENT THAT OCCURRED WHEN ANNIKA, YOUR PARTNER WAS ASKED TO REPLAY A HOLED CHIP, WHEN IT WAS DETERMINED, SUBSEQUENTLY THAT SHE, IN FACT WASN'T AWAY AT THE TIME.

IS EVERYBODY SPEAKING NOW? HAVE AMENDS BEEN MADE BETWEEN THE PARTICIPANTS?

JANICE MOODIE

YEAH, WE HAD A FLIGHT OVER, YOU KNOW, THIS FLIGHT, WITH, THERE WAS FOUR EUROPEANS AND THE AMERICAN TEAM, AND IT WAS A LITTLE BIT CHILLY, BUT YOU KNOW, THAT'S, THAT'S FINE. THAT'S, I THINK IT HAD TO BE THAT WAY, YOU KNOW, AND THEN WE GET TO THE TOURNAMENT SIGHT, AND THAT, YOU KNOW, I IMMEDIATELY WENT TO KELLY AND ALSO PAT HURST AND YOU KNOW, IT'S WATER UNDER THE BRIDGE NOW.

PETER KESSLER

IS THAT, WOULD THAT BE TRUE FOR ANNIKA TOO? IS SHE MORE COMFORTABLE ABOUT WHERE THINGS ARE NOW?

JANICE MOODIE

I THINK SO, YOU KNOW, I MEAN, THE MAIN THING IS AND, THERE WAS A LOT OF GOOD GOLF PLAYED AND YOU KNOW, IT'S UNFORTUNATE THAT FACT (??) KIND OF BEEN MISGUARDED A LITTLE BIT, BUT UM YEAH I THINK, I THINK SHE'S FINE ABOUT IT NOW AS WELL.

PETER KESSLER

LET'S GO AHEAD AND TAKE A LOOK, WE HAVE A LENGTHY PIECE OF VIDEO. IT'S ACTUALLY NOT BEEN SEEN BEFORE, THE PIECE WE HAVE IN THE UNITED STATES BECAUSE IT SHOWS A DIFFERENT ANGLE OF WHAT WENT ON AROUND THE 13TH GREEN THAT I THINK IS PERHAPS A LITTLE MORE TELLING THAN THE ONE THAT WE SAW AT THE TIME THE INCIDENT AROSE. SO LET'S GO AHEAD AND TAKE A LOOK AT THAT, AND WHY DON'T YOU TELL US, WHAT'S GOING ON. YOU, YOU HAVEN'T CHIPPED YET

JANICE MOODIE

OKAY WELL

NO. KELLY'S MARKED HER BALL, OBVIOUSLY AND ANOTHER THING, UNA, SHE RECHIPPED HER BALL? NO, NOW SHE'S MARKED HER BALL, AND THEN, NOW LOOKING AT IT, I MEAN I HAVEN'T EVEN SEEN THIS VIDEO YET.

PETER KESSLER

DO YOU HAVE A, THIS IS THE POINT AT WHICH EVERYBODY'S JUST APPROACHED THE GREEN AND YOU HAVEN'T CHIPPED YET

JANICE MOODIE

OKAY. OKAY. WELL I HAVEN'T CHIPPED YET. WE'RE NOW LOOKING, I'M OVER ON THE SIDE JUST PAST ANNIKA THERE GETTING READY TO HIT MY PITCH. I MEAN, BOTH PAT AND KELLY GO TO THE BACK END OF THE GREEN, ARMS FOLDED AND BASICALLY JUST STAND THERE. SO I MEAN, THEY'VE TAKEN THEIR SELF OUT OF THE PICTURE AND I'M NOW ASSESSING OBVIOUSLY MY CHIP WHICH THEN GOES BY. DIDN'T HOLE THIS ONE, AND YOU KNOW, I MEAN, BOTH OF THEM ARE JUST STANDING THERE. SO, I MEAN, ANNIKA AND I, I THINK THE CONFUSION REALLY IS
BECAUSE KELLY'S BALL IS FAR DOWN THAT GREEN AND YOU CAN NOT SEE THE MARKER. SO NOW I'M GOING UP. I'M GOING TO MARK IT. ANNIKA'S TAKING HER TIME. IF YOU SEE, THERE'S, THERE'S NO INTENT TO PLAY AND I THINK THAT'S WHERE THE CONFUSION, BASICALLY, I MEAN KELLY DOESN'T THINK IT'S HER SHOT.

PETER KESSLER

QUITE CLEARLY EVERYBODY'S WAITING FOR ANNIKA

JANICE MOODIE

BUT THE THING IS, I THINK BECAUSE

PETER KESSLER

SHE'S, SHE'S WALKED UP TO THE GREEN ONCE. SHE'S TAKING A NUMBER OF SHOTS.

JANICE MOODIE

YEAH

PETER KESSLER

NOW WE'LL HEAR WHAT KELLY HAS TO SAY.

KELLY ROBBINS (ON TAPE)

IT WAS A SITUATION THAT SHOULD HAVE NEVER HAPPENED. IT SHOULD'VE NEVER TAKE PLACE. WHETHER I SHOULD HAVE NOTICED, MY CADDIE, PAT, ANNIKA, ANNIKA'S CADDIE, JANICE, SOMEONE SHOULD HAVE NOTICED THAT SOMETHING WAS, WAS HAPPENING AND AS SOON AS, YOU KNOW, SHE HIT SUCH A GREAT SHOT, AS YOU START WALKING IT CHECKED OUT, BECAUSE I COULDN'T SEE HER BALL OR WHERE SHE HIT IT FROM AND I KIND OF LOOKED AND I, I MEAN RIGHT AWAY I KNEW THAT, THAT SOMETHING WAS WRONG.

PETER KESSLER

DID YOU SUSPECT ANYTHING AT THIS PARTICULAR POINT OR WAS IT

JANICE MOODIE

RIGHT THEN. SEE WHEN SHE LOOKED AT THE HOLE AND SHE LOOKS DOWN A WAY, IT WAS HER TO PLAY, AND IT WAS ONLY BECAUSE THEN I NOTICED HOW FAR DOWN SHE WAS LOOKING AT HER PUTT.

PETER KESSLER

SO YOU THINK SHE REALIZED AT THE SAME TIME THAT YOU ESSENTIALLY DID

JANICE MOODIE

YES

PETER KESSLER

THAT SHE WAS, HAD CLEARLY BEEN AWAY

JANICE MOODIE

YES

PETER KESSLER

AND THERE WAS NO, AND WE COULD HAVE, WE CLEARLY SAW A MOMENT AGO THERE WAS NO QUICK CHIP BY ANNIKA OR

JANICE MOODIE

NO

PETER KESSLER

ANYTHING OF THE KIND. SHE

JANICE MOODIE

NO.

PETER KESSLER

TOOK HER TIME. SHE

JANICE MOODIE

NO

PETER KESSLER

TOOK A NUMBER OF PRACTICE STROKES.

JANICE MOODIE

MHMM

PETER KESSLER

AND IT APPEARED AS THOUGH EVERYBODY WAS IN UNSPOKEN AGREEMENT THAT IT WAS HER PLAY.

JANICE MOODIE

YEAH. I MEAN CLEARLY THAT'S, THAT'S THE WAY WE, WE SAW IT AS WELL. I MEAN, YOU KNOW I THINK, YOU'VE GOT TO REALIZE THAT THERE'S FOUR PEOPLE PLAYING SHOTS HERE, AND WE'RE USED TO THREE, WE'RE USED TO STROKE PLAY AND IT WAS JUST, IT WAS JUST A CONFUSING MOMENT, YOU KNOW, I MEAN BARB'S PACING IT OUT BUT, I MEAN, THE MINUTE I, I SAW IT I JUST KNEW THAT IT WAS KELLY'S SHOT. YOU KNOW, AN UNFORTUNATE SITUATION.

YOU KNOW WE WERE TALKING ABOUT IT LATER ON THE SAMSON EVENT AND I SAID, PAT, I SAID YOU KNOW, IF YOU HAD GIVEN HER A CHIP AS OUR CHIP, WE WOULD HAVE GIVEN YOU THAT DEEP PUTT. YOU KNOW, THAT 3 FOOTER AND SHE'S LIKE, JANICE, IF WE HAD KNOWN YOU WOULD HAVE GIVEN US A THREE FOOTER, THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN A DIFFERENT STORY, AND I THINK THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN A GREAT EXAMPLE OF, YOU KNOW, TEAM SORT OF SPORTSMANSHIP IF THAT HAD HAPPENED, BUT WE NEVER GOT TO THAT POINT.

PETER KESSLER

AND OF COURSE THE WAY IT ENDED UP IS THAT THIS MOMENT IS WHAT HAS BEEN DISCUSSED AND WE ARE DISCUSSING NOW AS OPPOSED TO THE INCREDIBLY CLOSE MATCH AND THE GREAT VICTORY IN THE PLAYING OF THIS PARTICULAR TOURNAMENT IN LOCH LOMOND, SCOTLAND, YOUR HOME GOLF COURSE, AND IT'S AMAZING TO A NUMBER OF US THAT ANNIKA WAS ABLE TO CONTROL HER EMOTIONS TO THE EXTENT THAT SHE COULD PULL THE TRIGGER AGAIN AND NEARLY HOLE IT AGAIN.

JANICE MOODIE

I KNOW. SHE NEARLY DIDN'T. I'M SURE SHE WAS TRYING.

PETER KESSLER

AND OF COURSE THIS IS PAT HURST TO NOW WIN THE HOLE WITH HER SHORT BIRDIE PUTT

JANICE MOODIE

YEAH

PETER KESSLER

IN A MATCH THAT SHE AND KELLY ROBINS ULTIMATELY WON TWO AND ONE IN WHAT TURNED OUT TO BE A LOSING CAUSE. PEOPLE DON'T HAVE A GREAT FEEL FOR ANNIKA'S SENSE OF PATRIOTISM WHEN IT COMES TO TEAM PLAY AND HOW MUCH SHE WAS REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO
THIS CUP AND, AND HOW IMPORTANT THIS WAS TO HER. GIVE US A SENSE OF THAT.

JANICE MOODIE

OH IT WAS, I MEAN, RIGHT FROM THE WORD GO, YOU KNOW, EVEN, EVEN BEFORE THAT, I MEAN, WE WERE IN COLUMBUS AND SHE SAID JANICE, DO YOU WANT TO PLAY WITH ME AND I WENT.
`PHOO' ( 19:28) ANNIKA SORENSTAM. SURE! I MEAN I, I'D LOVE TO PLAY WITH, YOU KNOW, IN THE FOURSOMES AND, AND I WAS JUST SO EXCITED ABOUT IT AND THEN WE GOT THERE AND SHE REALLY, SHE TOOK ME UNDER HER WING.

SHE SHOWED ME HOW SHE THINKS, YOU KNOW, WE, WE WERE LIKE 7 UNDER PAR AFTER 10 HOLES, OH NO WE WERE 5 UNDER PAR AFTER 10 HOLES AND WE BOGIE 11, AND IT WAS A BAD BOGIE, YOU KNOW I, I BLAME MYSELF BUT SHE PROBABLY BLAMES HERSELF BUT IT WAS A THREE PUTT, SO I LOOK AT HER AND I'M SO ANNOYED AT MYSELF BECAUSE IT WAS SUCH A TIGHT MATCH BETWEEN BETH AND MEG AND SHE'S LIKE, RIGHT, COME ON, NOT A PROBLEM.

SHE' S LIKE THAT JUST SHOWS WE'RE HUMAN. SHE SAYS COME ON, LET'S GO AND BE MACHINES AGAIN AND I'M LIKE, `PHHH' ( 13) OKAY! YOU KNOW AND, I, WAS JUST LIKE, FOLLOWING BEHIND HER AND ANYWAY SHE WAS JUST FANTASTIC.

PETER KESSLER

SO THAT WAS LEARNING THE ONE SHOT AT A TIME THEORY ACTUALLY CAN BE PUT INTO PRACTICE?

JANICE MOODIE

YEAHHH-OH YEAH. YEAH. IT WAS JUST FANTASTIC. UNBELIEVABLE.

PETER KESSLER

WILL TAKE A SHORT BREAK. WE'LL COME BACK AND TALK A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT SOME OF THE PARTICIPANTS SURROUNDING THE SOLHEIM CUP, IN JUST A MOMENT. AS WE LEAVE, SOME CAREER STATS OF JANICE MOODIE.
