PETER KESSLER

YOU HAVE YOUR DEGREE IN PSYCHOLOGY. I UNDERSTAND YOU'RE LISTENING TO PSYCHOLOGY TAPES. WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING TO HEAR?

JANICE MOODIE

UM. YOU KNOW, A LITTLE BIT OF INSPIRATION. KEEP THAT MIND GOING. KEEP IT FOCUSED AND I THINK THAT'S THE BIG THING. YOU KNOW, I PLAYED LAST WEEK AND THE MIND WAS ELSEWHERE,


AND, AND THE MIND'S A VERY POWERFUL THING AND I THINK SOMETIMES UNDERESTIMATED, SO ANYTHING I CAN DO TO GET ME BACK ON TRACK.

PETER KESSLER

WHEN YOU'RE IMAGINATION RUNS RIAD ON THE GOLF COURSE, HOW DO YOU USE WHAT YOU LEARNED IN SCHOOL AND WHAT YOU STUDY NOW TO CALM IT DOWN?

JANICE MOODIE

UM. YOU KNOW I DON'T KNOW IF ALL THE PSYCHOLOGY STUFF I LEARNED REALLY HELPED ME BUT

PETER KESSLER

BECAUSE YOU WERE PLAYING GOLF

JANICE MOODIE

BECAUSE I WAS PLAYING GOLF ALL THE TIME

PETER KESSLER

RIGHT

JANICE MOODIE

UNDER WORLDS OF BASKET WEAVING AND STUFF LIKE THAT BUT

PETER KESSLER

WHICH YOU'RE VERY GOOD AT

JANICE MOODIE

YEAH. BUT NO, I JUST, YOU KNOW, YOU JUST GOT TO KEEP SAYING BREATHE, JUST KEEP BREATHING. TAKE EVERY, YOU KNOW, I KEEP EVERYTHING IN PERSPECTIVE.

WHEN I WAS AN AMATEUR, YOU KNOW, I, I USED TO PLAY TOURNAMENTS AND I'D BE LEADING OUT AT THE PARK AND I'D GO DOWN THE FAIRWAY THINKING LIKE OKAY WHAT AM I GOING TO SAY IN MY SPEECH, YOU KNOW,AND IT'S JUST LIKE YOUR HEAD JUST GOES SO FAR AHEAD AND I THINK SO IMPORTANT TO KEEP IN, IN, IN THE PRESENT AND, AND THAT'S WHAT I'VE BEEN TRYING TO DO.

PETER KESSLER

HOW PROUD OF YOU, AND YOUR PARENTS ARE HERE IN THE STUDIO TONIGHT, DO YOU FEEL THEY ARE OF YOU?

JANICE MOODIE

OH, VERY PROUD. YEAH. I GO BACK HOME, AND, WELL, MY DAD USED TO WORK IN A COLLEGE AND, I'D GO IN AND I MEAN THEY KNEW MORE ABOUT ME THAN I KNEW ABOUT ME, YOU KNOW, SO, IT, VERY PROUD, YEAH.

PETER KESSLER

AND WHAT DO YOU SUPPOSE, AND, AND YOU CAN TELL US THIS, WHAT HAS YOUR MOM SAID TO YOU ABOUT GOLF AND THE FACT THAT YOU LEARNED FROM HER AND THAT THIS HAS SOMEHOW STAYED IN THE FAMILY, THIS ABILITY TO PLAY.

JANICE MOODIE

NOTHING REALLY, SHE JUST KEEPS TELLING ME NEVER TO LOSE A GOLF BALL BECAUSE THEY COST SO MUCH MONEY, AND I'M THINKING BUT I GET THEM FOR FREE, YOU KNOW, BUT, THIS IS A POUND OF MINTS. YOU KNOW, THAT'S HOW SHE USED TO RELATE IT SO, NO THAT'S, THAT'S THE WORDS OF WISDOM FROM MY MOTHER.

PETER KESSLER

AND OF COURSE YOU WERE SO CLOSE TO HOME WHEN YOU WON THE CUP AT LOCH LOMOND. WHAT WAS THE REACTION FROM YOUR PARENTS AT HOME?

JANICE MOODIE

OH THEY FOLLOWED ON THE FRIDAY AND HAD A GREAT TIME. WE MANAGED TO GET THEM INSIDE THE ROPES SO THEY DIDN'T BREAK A LEG LIKE A COUPLE OF OTHER PEOPLE DID, BUT (LAUGHS) THEY WERE INSIDE THE ROPES WITH SOME FRIENDS, FRIEDA, AND SHE TOOK HER AROUND
WITH HER HUSBAND SO , THEY WATCHED AS MUCH AS THEY COULD BECAUSE THERE WAS A LOT OF CROWDS AND STUFF BUT THEY HAD A GOOD TIME.

PETER KESSLER

WAS THERE SOMEBODY THAT THEY WANTED TO MEET ON EITHER OF THE TWO TEAMS?

JANICE MOODIE

UM. NOT REALLY. MY DAD JUST WANTED TO GET INTO THE HOUSE BECAUSE HE KEEPS SAYING THAT, YOU KNOW, I HAVE THE CALHOUNS OF LUSSER, HIS ANCESTORS AND THAT UNFORTUNATELY WE NEVER GET INTO THE HOUSE, BUT THAT WAS HIS GOAL. HE SAID I WANT TO GO IN THE HOUSE, SO I'LL GET HIM IN THERE NEXT YEAR.

PETER KESSLER

WHAT GOALS HAVE YOU SET FOR YOURSELF NOW THAT YOU'VE MADE THE TEAM, YOU'VE WON ON THE TEAM, YOU'VE WON YOUR FIRST LPGA EVENT?

JANICE MOODIE

WELL I MEAN, YOU KNOW, THE MINUTE WE FINISHED OFF WITH THE SOLHEIM CUP IT WAS LIKE I WANT TO DO THIS AGAIN. I'M LIKE, I JUST, I WANT TO DO IT AGAIN. IT WAS, IT WAS UNBELIEVABLE JUST THE,
THE TEAM COMMERADERIE WAS, WAS FANTASTIC SO, I'M LIKE I WANT TO DO THIS, SO THAT'S DEFINITELY A GOAL AND JUST WIN MAYBE A COUPLE MORE LPGA EVENTS. JUST HAVE FUN OUT THERE. ENJOY IT. I LOVE WHAT I DO. BEST LIVING EVER, YOU KNOW, BEST WAY TO MAKE A LIVING.
