PETER KESSLER

ALRIGHT, HERE'S A QUESTION THAT WAS SUBMITTED FOR YOU TODAY, JANICE. THE EUROPEAN WOMEN'S TOUR SEEMS TO BE STRUGGLING, WHAT DO YOU THINK THE FUTURE LOOKS LIKE. ALICE RENNER WANTS TO KNOW.

JANICE MOODIE

UM I WOULD SAY VERY GOOD. DEFINITELY WITH THE SOLHEIM CUP VICTORY. IT'S DEFINITELY GOING TO LIFT THE EUROPEAN TOUR, YEAH, AND, AND I'VE ALREADY HEARD THERE MIGHT BE A SCOTTISH OPEN
NEXT YEAR. I'LL BE DEFINITELY THERE FOR THAT, SO, IT, IT LOOKS AS THOUGH IT'S ON THE, ON THE WAY UP.

PETER KESSLER

HOW CURIOUS AND INCREDIBLY WONDERFUL WAS IT FOR YOU, SOME ONE WHO, WHO HAS FOOLED US INTO THINKING THAT YOU'RE AMERICAN BUT WE KNOW THAT YOU'RE FROM SCOTLAND, TO WIN YOUR FIRST LPGA EVENT ON A COURSE BUILT BY DONALD ROSS

JANICE MOODIE

DONALD ROSS

PETER KESSLER

WHO OF COURSE IS FROM SCOTLAND

JANICE MOODIE

MHMM

PETER KESSLER

BUILT PINEHURST NUMBER TWO AND HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS OF OTHER GREAT COURSES IN THIS COUNTRY AND YOU WENT ON THE BAY COURSE AT THE SEA VIEW MARRIOT RESORT IN NEW JERSEY. IT'S KIND OF A SCOTTISH STYLE THAT'S DEMANDED, IS IT NOT, TO PLAY THE COURSE PROPERLY.

JANICE MOODIE

IT'S ACTUALLY ONE OF THE, THE MOST. SIMILAR LINKS GOLF COURSES THAT I'VE PLAYED IN THE STATES. I MEAN THE GROUND GETS HARD, YOU CAN PLAY BUMP AND RUNS, SOMETHING THAT, WELL, THIS SHOT WAS DEFINITELY A BUMP AND RUN OUT OF THAT THICK ROUGH, BUT UM
YOU KNOW, YOU SEE IT THAT THE BALL RUNS SHORT, RUNS UP. THERE'S NO WHERE ELSE IN AMERICA, OR THE OUTBLADE THAT YOU REALLY GET THAT.

PETER KESSLER

DID YOU HAVE ANY KIND OF A FEELING GIVEN THE NATURE OF THE GOLF COURSE AND THE STATE OF YOUR GAME THAT WEEK THAT MAYBE THAT COULD BE YOUR WEEK OR IS IT DANGEROUS TO THINK THOSE THINGS?

JANICE MOODIE

IT'S TOTALLY NOT. I MEAN, I WAS THERE AND YOU KNOW I'D BEEN PRACTICING QUITE A BIT. I HAD CHIP KELKEY FROM THE FALDO INSTITUTE.

PETER KESSLER

SURE.

JANICE MOODIE

HE WAS UP THERE FOR THE WEEKEND. I'VE SEEN HIM A COUPLE OF TIMES FOR SOME LESSONS AND WE GO OUT AND HE'S THERE JUST ABOUT ALL WEEK, SO, I, I GUESS I WAS MORE IN THE MIND SET BECAUSE HE WAS THERE AS WELL AND WITH IT BEING A THREE DAY EVENT IT, IT JUST RAN REAL SMOOTH. REAL SMOOTH.

PETER KESSLER

NOW YOU BIRDIED A COUPLE OF HOLES AROUND THE TURN. I THINK WE'RE GOING TO SEE ONE OF THE, YOU BIRDIED 8 AND 9 DID YOU NOT? IF I'M NOT MISTAKEN.

JANICE MOODIE

I BIRDIED 8 AND 9. YEAH, AND THEN, THEN IT WAS JUST A CASE OF LET'S, LET'S HOLD ON TO THAT LEAD. YOU KNOW, PAT HURST WAS IN WITH LIKE A 62, GRACE PARK WAS IN WITH LIKE A 65 AND EVERYBODY ELSE I WAS PLAYING WITH REALLY COULDN'T DO ANYTHING AND I THOUGHT, YOU KNOW WHAT, JANICE, YOU JUST HANG ONTO THIS TWO SHOT LEAD. YOU'RE GOING TO WIN IT.

PETER KESSLER

WHAT WAS GOING ON INSIDE? CONFIDENCE, ONE SHOT AT A TIME, OR

JANICE MOODIE

YEAH JUST

PETER KESSLER

WAS THERE

JANICE MOODIE

YEAH, JUST TOTALLY ONE SHOT AT A TIME. YOU KNOW, JUST OKAY, THIS IS WHAT I'VE NOW DONE, HOW DID I GET MYSELF INTO THIS, AND I HOLED A LOT OF FIVE FOOTERS LIKE THIS. YOU KNOW, JUST A LOT OF THEM, WHICH WAS DEFINITELY THE KEY.

PETER KESSLER

WERE YOU LOOKING AT THE LEADERBOARDS OR WERE YOU INTENTIONALLY IGNORING THEM?

JANICE MOODIE

REALLY, NINE WAS WERE I LOOKED AT IT AND THEN THAT WAS IT BECAUSE I DIDN'T NEED TO BECAUSE EVERYBODY ELSE THAT WAS GOING TO DO SOMETHING, YOU KNOW, HAD ALREADY FINISHED, SO, I MEAN I, I JUST KEPT PLAYING.

JANICE MOODIE

YOU HAD SAID THAT YOUR DREAM AFTER YOUR MOM PUSHED YOU INTO GOLF AND YOU LEARNED TO LOVE IT ALL BY YOURSELF, WITH HER COAXING, WAS TO PLAY ON THE LPGA TOUR. WHEN YOU WON HERE DID YOU HAVE A THOUGHT, I THINK MY DREAM HAS COME TRUE AND IT'S PRETTY MUCH WHAT I HAD IN MIND?

JANICE MOODIE

MY DREAM'S COME TRUE AND I WANT TO GO AND GET MORE.

PETER KESSLER

NOW THE CADDIE THAT YOU WORKED WITH THAT WEEK, IT WAS A COMPLETELY NEW RELATIONSHIP FOR YOU.

JANICE MOODIE

YEAH, TWO WEEKS. PAT, GREAT GUY, HE WORKS ON THE PGA TOUR. WE, WE HAD A GREAT WEEK.

PETER KESSLER

WHAT WAS HIS REACTION AND IS HE STILL WORKING WITH YOU?

JANICE MOODIE

UNFORTUNATELY NOT. WE PARTED WAYS AND I HAVE A FRIEND FROM SCOTLAND THAT IS CADDYING FOR ME NOW BUT NO, WE, WE HAD A GREAT LITTLE RUN THERE, IT WAS A LOT OF FUN.

PETER KESSLER

PEOPLE DON'T UNDERSTAND THE CHEMISTRY THAT'S REQUIRED TO KEEP A CADDIE PLAYER RELATIONSHIP GOING, REGARDLESS OF THE SUCCESS AND HERE'S A PERFECT EXAMPLE. YOU WON WITH HIM, YOU'RE NOT WORKING TOGETHER NOW, SO THAT SAYS SOMETHING ABOUT THE CHEMISTRY WASN'T QUITE IN TACT FOR THE LONG TERM.

JANICE MOODIE

YEAH, I MEAN, IT, IT'S, IT'S A REAL TOUGH FINE AREA, YOU KNOW, I, I YOU DON'T REALIZE, I MEAN WE WERE OBVIOUSLY WOMEN ON TOUR TRAVELING ALONE AND YOU KNOW I MEAN, IT, I , I THINK A GUY CADDYING FOR ME, I HAVE A LITTLE BIT


MORE RESPECT FOR A GUY CADDYING FOR ME I, I DON'T KNOW, IT'S JUST A TOUGH, TOUGH, TOUGH DEAL ,YOU KNOW, IF, IF YOU CAN GET ON WITH SOMEBODY AND YOU GEL WELL. LIKE THERE'S A COUPLE OF REAL GOOD ONES OUT THERE, JULIE INGSTER AND GREGORY, I MEAN THEY GET ON GREAT. ANNIKA AND TAY MACKRE ARE NOW GETTING ON GREAT. YOU KNOW THERE'S A LOT OF REAL GOOD ONES OUT THERE. LORI KANE AND DANNY.

THEY'RE, IT, IT JUST DEPENDS, YOU KNOW, I MEAN, AND TRYING TO FIND THAT, THAT LITTLE NITCH , IT'S, IT'S TOUGH. REAL TOUGH.

PETER KESSLER
