PETER KESSLER
 
EVERYBODY TALKS ABOUT YOUR CLOTHING, YOUR - YOUR HOT PINK PANTS. HOW DO YOU PUT ALL THIS STUFF TOGETHER? IS THIS ALL YOUR IDEA AND YOU'RE JUST DOING IT BECAUSE IT'S FUN?

JESPER PARNEVIK
 
UH, I MEAN, I - I LOVE MY CLOTHES. THAT'S ONE KEY. AND UH, I MEAN, IT'S JOHANN LINDEBERG (SPELLING-???) THAT DOES MY CLOTHING. IT'S A FRIEND I HAVE FROM SWEDEN. I MEAN, WE WERE NOT FRIENDS BEFORE, YOU KNOW, I STARTED WEARING THE CLOTHES.

BUT OUR UM, SO-CALLED UH RELATIONSHIP HAS GROWN INTO A GREAT FRIENDSHIP. AND UH, IT'S - IT'S, YOU KNOW, IT'S ...

FASHION AROUND THE WORLD CHANGES, YOU KNOW, EVERY DECADE AND SO ON. THE ONLY PART OF THE FASHION WORLD THAT HASN'T CHANGED IS GOLF. YOU KNOW, GOLF HAS KIND OF GOTTEN STUCK IN THE 80'S

WHERE EVERYTHING WAS VERY BLAND, VERY BORING. AND IF YOU LOOK AT IN THE 20'S, 30'S, 40'S, 50'S, 60'S, THE FASHIONS CHANGED. AND EVERYBODY LOOKED VERY GOOD, IF YOU LOOK AT HOGAN, PALMER AND THESE GUYS, HOW THEY DRESSED.

IT'S JUST RIGHT NOW, YOU KNOW, WE'RE STUCK IN THE 80'S. AND UH, WE'RE JUST TRYING TO CHANGE THAT, GET SOME FASHION BACK INTO GOLF.

PETER KESSLER
 
AND YOU'RE DOING IT. WHAT WOULD YOUR WIFE, MIA, SAY IF WE ASKED HER WHAT KIND OF A HUSBAND YOU ARE?

JESPER PARNEVIK
 
OH, I MEAN, SHE LOVES ME SO WHAT CAN SHE SAY? (LAUGH)

PETER KESSLER
 
SHE COULD SAY A LOT OF THINGS.

JESPER PARNEVIK
 
SHE COULD PROBABLY. AND I MEAN, WHEN WE TRAVEL THE WAY WE DO, WE HAVE THREE DAUGHTERS NOW, SHE'S DEFINITELY THE ONE THAT HAS TO DO THE HARD WORK BECAUSE UH, YOU KNOW, IT'S VERY TOUGH, JUST GOLF TOURNAMENTS, ...

AND UH, TO HAVE, YOU KNOW, THE WHOLE FAMILY ALL TRAVEL TOGETHER ON TOUR, WHICH I'M FORTUNATE I CAN DO SO FAR BECAUSE MY OLDEST DAUGHTER, PEG, IS NOT IN SCHOOL YET.

SO MIA DEFINITELY HAS TO DO THE HARD WORK BY TAKING CARE OF THE KIDS WHEN I'M NOT PLAYING - WHEN I AM PLAYING AND SO ON. AND UH, SHE'S DOING A GREAT JOB AT IT. SO I DON'T KNOW IF SHE WOULD SAY I'M A LITTLE BIT LAZY SOMETIMES, PROBABLY.

PETER KESSLER
 
HOW EXCITED ARE YOUR PARENTS ABOUT BEING GRANDPARENTS TO YOUR KIDS?

JESPER PARNEVIK
 
OH, I MEAN, THE ... WE WERE - WE HAD THE FIRST UH, GRANDPARENTS FOR THEM - GRANDKIDS FOR THEM. I MEAN, THEY DIDN'T HAVE ANY BEFORE I HAD MY KIDS. AND THEY JUST LOVE THEM.

THEY JUST ... YOU KNOW, THE BAD THING IS THEY CAN'T MEET THAT OFTEN BECAUSE THEY STILL LIVE IN SWEDEN SO ... BUT EVERY SUMMER WE GO OVER TO SWEDEN AND EVERY CHRISTMAS THEY COME OVER HERE AND THEY JUST LOVE EACH OTHER.

PETER KESSLER
 
WHAT KIND OF A DAD ARE YOU?

JESPER PARNEVIK
 
OH, I JUST LOVE MY KIDS MORE THAN ANYTHING ON THIS PLANET. AND UM, THAT'S REALLY WHAT I TRY TO SHOW THE MOST TO MY KIDS, IT'S JUST THE LOVE I FEEL FOR THEM AND THE ...

YOU KNOW, EVERY TIME I HAVE TIME OFF FROM GOLF, I TRY TO SPEND AS MUCH TIME WITH MY KIDS AS POSSIBLE BECAUSE I THINK THAT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING FOR A KID IS JUST TO FEEL LOVED AND THEN JUST FEEL THAT THEIR THOUGHTS AND IDEAS ARE A LOT - VERY VALUABLE TO YOU ...

AND JUST GIVE THEM, YOU KNOW, THINGS TO DO - DO THINGS WITH THEM INSTEAD OF JUST ... WHAT SHOULD I SAY, BUY THEM THINGS AND - OR WHATEVER YOU CAN DO.

I REALLY WANT TO, YOU KNOW, BE WITH MY KIDS AND WATCH THEM GROW.

PETER KESSLER
 
HAVE THE OLDER ONES, PEG AND PENNY, FIGURED OUT WHO YOU ARE WHEN THEY SEE YOU ON TELEVISION?

JESPER PARNEVIK
 
YEAH, ACTUALLY IT WAS FUNNY LAST WEEK IN THE MATCH PLAY 'CAUSE UH, YOU KNOW, EVERY TIME I WON AT UH A MATCH, THEY CAME RUNNING 'DADDY, YOU WON! JESPER, YOU WON!'

AND ACTUALLY MY YOUNGEST ONE, SHE CALLS ME JESPER. WHEN I'M ON THE GOLF COURSE, SHE CALLS ME 'JESPER, YOU'RE GREAT!'. SO AFTER THE THIRD MATCH, PENNY, WHICH IS MY MIDDLE ONE,

SHE COMES UP TO MY MOM AND SAYS 'DID JESPER WIN TODAY?' AND SHE GOES, 'NO, HE DIDN'T.' 'YEAH, WE CAN GO HOME' SO ...

(PETER LAUGHS)

SO THAT'S THE WAY IT GOES WITH KIDS.

PETER KESSLER
 
WE HAVEN'T TALKED ABOUT YOUR MOM. WHAT DOES SHE THINK ABOUT YOUR GREAT SUCCESS AND WHAT YOU'VE GROWN UP TO BECOME?

JESPER PARNEVIK
 
UH, MY MOM IS VERY DIFFERENT FROM MY DAD. I MEAN, SHE'S A LITTLE BIT ON THE HYPER SIDE. I MEAN, SHE DOESN'T EVEN DARE TO WATCH ME PLAY GOLF. I THINK SHE'S BEEN TO MAYBE TWO OR THREE EVENTS IN HER WHOLE LIFE.

AND IF SHE DOES, USUALLY SHE WALKS IN AFTER A FEW HOLES BECAUSE SHE'S ABOUT TO GET AN ULCER. SO UH ... BUT SHE'S VERY HAPPY, OF COURSE. I MEAN UM, SHE LOVES WATCHING IT SOMETIMES ON TV. SO UM, YOU KNOW, IT'S GREAT.

PETER KESSLER
