PETER KESSLER

THERE WAS SOME CHAT THAT EARLIER IN THE CALENDAR YEAR THAT, THERE WAS EITHER A MISUNDERSTANDING OR A MISCOMMUNICATION BETWEEN YOU AND DALE REID AND THAT THERE WAS A SENSE IN YOUR HEAD, MAYBE, THAT YOU MIGHT NOT GET PICKED FOR THE TEAM, BUT NOT FOR THE RIGHT REASONS.

JANICE MOODIE

UM YEAH YOU KNOW, I MEAN OBVIOUSLY WITH US, OR WITH ME, BEING HERE AND, AND MAKING THE LPGA REALLY MY HOME TOUR, I MEAN THEIR VIEW (??) ON TOUR IS DEFINITELY PART OF MY LIFE AND, AND (??) YOU KNOW WHERE I LIKE BEING AS WELL, AND I ENJOY GOING BACK HOME BUT LIFE AND MY CAREER IS DEFINITELY OUT HERE AND, AND I THINK SHE JUST WANTS TO KNOW, DOES SHE REALLY WANT TO PLAY FOR EUROPE?

I MEAN WHAT'S, WHAT'S HER STANCE, AND IT WAS KIND OF MISCOMMUNICATED BASICALLY BECAUSE WE NEVER REALLY GOT TO SEE ONE ANOTHER OR TALK TO ONE ANOTHER AND SHE WAS OVER THERE AND I WAS OVER HERE AND, IT WAS, IT WAS JUST, WE GOT OFF ON THE WRONG FOOT.

PETER KESSLER

AND EVENTUALLY GOT BACK ON THE RIGHT ONE.

JANICE MOODIE

YES.

PETER KESSLER

HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?

JANICE MOODIE

UM, YOU KNOW I, I WAS AT THE EVIAN TOURNAMENT AND WE KIND OF GOT OFF ON THE WRONG FOOT AND I COULD, I COULD SENSE THAT, AND THAT WAS AT THE, LUCKILY IT WAS AT THE BEGINNING OF THE WEEK AND I SAID DALE, CAN I HAVE A WORD WITH YOU? AND I JUST SAID, LOOK, I WANT TO PLAY, I WANT TO BE ON THAT TEAM.

YOU KNOW, I DON'T, I DON'T CARE WHAT ANYBODY ELSE SAYS OR THINKS OR YOU KNOW BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY SHE'S GETTING INPUT FROM OTHER PLAYERS AND STUFF AND I'M LIKE I WANT TO BE ON THAT TEAM, SO, I, I THINK THAT HELPED OUT AND I, I THINK MY VICTORY HELPED AS WELL.

PETER KESSLER

I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT SO.

JANICE MOODIE

THE ICING ON THE CAKE (LAUGHS).

PETER KESSLER

ANNIKA, FROM REALLY '95, WHEN SHE WON HER FIRST OF TWO CONSECUTIVE U.S. WOMEN'S OPENS, THROUGH THE END OF '98 WAS THE BEST FEMALE PLAYER IN THE WORLD AND FOR THE LAST TWO YEARS KARIE WEBB HAS CLEARLY BEEN NUMBER ONE. HOW DO YOU THINK ANNIKA'S HANDLED THAT ADJUSTMENT OF NOT BEING NUMBER ONE, AS CLOSE AS SHE STILL IS TO KARIE?

JANICE MOODIE

I MEAN I THINK VERY WELL. I MEAN I, I DON'T KNOW ANNIKA TOO WELL. OBVIOUSLY I GOT TO KNOW HER REALLY WELL DURING THE SOLHEIM CUP BUT SHE'S AS COMPETITIVE AS COMPETITIVE CAN BE.

I MEAN SHE'S JUST A GREAT PLAYER AND YOU KNOW, MY GOOD FRIEND, YEAH AND, AND, AND I THINK SHE HANDLES EVERYTHING WELL. I THINK, YOU KNOW, SHE'S, SHE'S GONE THROUGH, PROBABLY FOUR, FOUR YEARS OF JUST BEING NUMBER ONE AND BEING LIKE A MACHINE AND, AND NOW STARTING TO ENJOY A LITTLE BIT OF LIFE. I MEAN WE WERE LAUGHING AND JOKING OUT THERE. WE HAD SOME JOKES GOING.

PETER KESSLER

LET'S CHECK IN WITH WILLIAM, WHO'S CALLING FROM NEVADA. WILLIAM, SO AHEAD AND ASK YOUR QUESTION, SIR.

WILLIAM, CALLER FROM NEVADA

YES JANICE, UH PETER, THANK YOU FOR TAKING MY CALL.

PETER KESSLER

YOUR WELCOME.

WILLIAM, CALLER FROM NEVADA

WAS YOUR KNOWLEDGE, OR, BEING A MEMBER OF LOCH LOMOND, WAS YOU KNOWLEDGE OF THE COURSE INSTRUMENTAL IN YOUR EUROPEAN WIN?

JANICE MOODIE

I, I MEAN I THINK SO. I MEAN, LOCH LOMOND HAS, HAS BEEN GREAT. WILD (??) ANDERSON'S BEEN GREAT TO ME AND BEEN VERY, VERY WELCOMING. IT'S, IT'S A VERY EXCLUSIVE GOLF COURSE, YOU KNOW, YOU, YOU DON'T PLAY THERE AND, YOU KNOW, ALL THE TIME. IT'S, IT'S DEFINITELY A SECONDARY CLUB AND YOU KNOW, I HAVE A COUPLE OF FRIENDS THAT ARE FROM SCOTLAND AND, YOU KNOW, THEY EVEN ONLY PLAY IT MAYBE TEN TIMES OUT OF THE YEAR, SO, WHENEVER I GO BACK I PLAY. I LOVE IT, AND, IT'S IN FANTASTIC SHAPE FOR A SCOTTISH GOLF COURSE, ESPECIALLY INLAND.

PETER KESSLER

WHAT DO YOU SUPPOSE THE GREAT SUCCESS THAT HELEN AFREDSSON AND KATRIN NIELSMARK, TWO VETERANS WHO ENJOYED GREAT SOLHEIM CUPS, WHAT DO YOU THINK THIS WILL MEAN TO THEIR CAREER TO SORT OF JUMP START IT ALL OVER AGAIN?

JANICE MOODIE

OH I MEAN, YOU KNOW, OBVIOUSLY THE TWO OF THEM, AND, AND HELEN EVEN CAME UP TO ME, SHE'S LIKE `YOU KNOW WHAT. I KNOW YOU DIDN'T THINK I SHOULD HAVE BEEN ON THAT TEAM BUT YOU KNOW' AND I'M LIKE `PHH' ( 26:33) YOU PROVED YOURSELF, DEFINITELY.

SHE WAS A FANTASTIC PART OF THAT TEAM, HELEN. SHE JUST HAS SPIRIT AND THAT'S WHAT DALE SAW AND THAT'S, THAT'S WHAT THE TEAM NEEDED AND KATRIN KNOWS MARK (???) UH! SHE'S UNBELIEVABLE. WE WERE SINGING SONGS ON THE BUS FROM LIKE, WE HAD A 15 MINUTE RIDE AND I DO NOT EVEN WANT TO GO INTO THE SONG, BUT IT WAS HILARIOUS, IT WAS GOING ON A WILD WEST TRIP, YOU KNOW, TO A ZOO, SO, THAT'S AS FAR AS I'M GOING. SHE WAS, SHE'S A CHARACTER. DEFINITELY TWO GREAT PEOPLE TO GET TEAM SPIRIT GOING.

PETER KESSLER

YOU AND KATRIN AND CARIN KOCH ALL HAD THREE POINTS FOR YOUR TEAM. CARIN'S RIGHT ON THE VERGE OF INTERNATIONAL STARDOM. IS THIS THE SORT OF BOOST SHE NEEDED TO PUT HER OVER THE EDGE OF THAT?

JANICE MOODIE

I THINK SO, I MEAN SHE WON IN EUROPE, YOU KNOW, SHE'LL WIN IN, IN THE LPGA. SHE'S A GREAT PLAYER AND JUST A GREAT COMPETITOR, YOU KNOW, SHE, SHE, I THINK, SHE'S ALSO MELLOWED OUT SINCE SHE HAD HER CHILD, OLIVER, YOU KNOW, HE TRAVELS AROUND AND KIND OF TAKES HER AWAY FROM THAT SERIOUS EDGE,


YOU KNOW, THAT SHE USED TO HAVE ON THE GOLF COURSE. I PLAYED WITH HER WHEN I WAS AN AMATEUR, ACTUALLY. SHE PROBABLY DOESN'T EVEN REMEMBER AND, A COUPLE OF CLUBS WERE BEING BANGED ON THE GOLF COURSE AND NOW SHE'S JUST REAL CALM AND JUST A SOLID, SOLID PLAYER AND YOU KNOW, OLIVER'S JUST FANTASTIC.

PETER KESSLER

DO YOU THINK PEOPLE HAVE A STRONG ENOUGH SENSE OF APPRECIATION FOR THE WORK THAT YOUR CAPTAIN, DALE REID, OF WHO WE DON'T KNOW TOO MUCH IN THIS COUNTRY DID FOR HER TEAM, IN TERMS OF, SHE WAS CRITICIZED FOR SOME OF THE SELECTIONS THAT SHE MADE AND THE ALL TURNED OUT TO BE RIGHT IN THE END, EVEN IF SOME DESERVING PEOPLE DIDN'T GET ON THE TEAM

JANICE MOODIE

MHMM

PETER KESSLER

AND OF COURSE SHE FIGURED OUT THE INDIVIDUAL CHEMISTRIES THAT WOULD WORK BEST IN PARTNERSHIPS. SHE DESERVES AN AWFUL LOT OF CREDIT DOESN'T SHE?

JANICE MOODIE

SHE DOES. SHE WAS FANTASTIC, YOU KNOW, I MEAN SHE TOOK A, A BIG RIBBING, YOU KNOW, I MEAN WE GO THERE AND THE PRESS, THE FIRST THING THEY WANT TO DO IS SAY, YOU KNOW, YOU, YOU'VE LOST, YOU KNOW AND, AND THE FIRST THING THEY SAY IS ALL LADBROOKS HAVE HERE, LIKE TWENTY-FIVE TO ONE, YOU KNOW, YOU KNOW, AND WINNING THIS THING, AND I SAID I DON'T CARE. I SAID WE'RE HERE TO WIN AND SHE JUST, SHE JUST INSPIRED US.

SHE WAS BASICALLY A PLAYER THAT'S BEEN THERE, DONE IT, BEEN ON A SOLHEIM CUP AND IT'S, I THINKS IT'S THE FIRST EUROPEAN TEAM TO ACTUALLY HAVE THAT, OR HAVE HER AS A CAPTAIN, YOU KNOW, BEING THERE, DONE IT, AND, AND SHE KNEW WHAT THE PLAYERS NEEDS WERE, WHICH I THINK WAS KEY.

PETER KESSLER

WHEN WE COME BACK I WANT TO ASK YOU TO SHOW US YOUR GOLF SWING AND WHAT THE KEY TO THE EFFICIENCY AND SIMPLICITY OF YOUR GOLF SWING ARE, PARTICULARLY SO THAT OUR VIEWERS AT HOME WHO ARE HAVING TROUBLE GETTING THE BALL UP IN THE AIR CAN PERHAPS LEARN A LITTLE SOMETHING, SO, WE'LL COME BACK AND, AND WE WILL GO ON TO OUR ACADEMY LIVE SET AND WE'LL TAKE A LOOK AT THE GOLF SWING OF JANICE MOODIE. DON'T GO AWAY.
