JENNIFER MILLS
2000 HAS BEEN A GOOD YEAR, HASN'T IT?

LOREN ROBERTS
IT'S BEEN A VERY GOOD YEAR FOR ME, YEAH.

JENNIFER MILLS
WE TALKED A BIT ABOUT THE MAJORS. YOU HAD A TERRIFIC SHOW AND STARTING WITH A TIE FOR THIRD, AT AUGUSTA.

LOREN ROBERTS
YEAH

JENNIFER MILLS
IT'S BEEN, IT'S BEEN, IT'S BEEN GOOD.

LOREN ROBERTS
IT'S BEEN VERY GOOD, I HAD, YOU KNOW, AY AUGUSTA, YOU WOULDN'T THINK THAT WOULD BE A GOLF COURSE THAT I COULD CONTEND ON BECAUSE OF THE LENGTH FACTOR, BUT, YOU KNOW, WHEN THE PUTT WENT IN AT NINE I REALLY HAD A LEGITIMATE CHANCE TO WIN AND AMEN CORNER GOT ME, BUT, AND THEN VIJAY JUST KIND OF PUT THE HAMMER DOWN ON EVERYBODY, BUT, YEAH, I PLAYED WELL IN THE OTHER, OTHER TWO MAJORS YOU KNOW, THE U.S. OPEN AND THEN THE OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP

JENNIFER MILLS
MHMM

LOREN ROBERTS
AT ST. ANDREWS.

JENNIFER MILLS
TOP TENS IN THE

LOREN ROBERTS
BUT OBVIOUSLY, YOU KNOW, WITH THE, WITH THE YEAR THAT MR. WOODS HAD, ANYTHING THAT I DID OR ANYBODY ELSE DID, MAJORS JUST PALED (??) IN COMPARISON.

JENNIFER MILLS
YOU HAD A WIN THIS YEAR AT THE GREATER MILWAUKEE OPEN. DID THE COPS CUSTARD HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITHOUT THAT SECRET INGREDIENT?

LOREN ROBERTS
UH WELL. I THINK I'M, I'M A , I THINK I'M PROBABLY HOME TRYING TO, YOU KNOW, GET BACK INTO SHAPE SO I CAN COME BACK TO MILWAUKEE AND EAT SOME MORE COD. THAT'S GOT TO BE THE BEST THING I EVER PUT IN MY MOUTH.

JENNIFER MILLS
THAT STUFF IS SO GOOD. WHAT FLAVOR?

LOREN ROBERTS
WHATEVER THE FLAVOR OF THE DAY IS UP THERE.

JENNIFER MILLS
MILWAUKEE WAS GOOD A WIN. YOUR SECOND WIN

LOREN ROBERTS
MHMM

JENNIFER MILLS
AT THAT EVENT.

LOREN ROBERTS
MHMM

JENNIFER MILLS
AND I THINK YOU HOLD THE TOURNAMENT SCORING RECORD THERE AS WELL, IS THAT RIGHT?

LOREN ROBERTS
I DID, I DID HOLD IT AND THEN CARLOS FRANCO TOOK IT LAST YEAR AND THEN I WAS ABLE TO GET IT BACK THIS YEAR.

JENNIFER MILLS
MHMM. WHAT IS IT? WHEN YOU GO BACK TO AN EVENT, YOU DID THE SAME AT BAY HILL. DO YOU JUST FEED OFF THE MEMORIES AND THE POSITIVES OF HAVING WON THERE ALREADY?

LOREN ROBERTS
YEAH, I, I THINK THAT'S A LOT TO DO. YOU TEND TO SEE A LOT OF PLAYERS OUT HERE ON TOUR PLAY WELL, YEAR IN AND YEAR OUT, AT VENUES THAT THEY HAVE EITHER WON AT OR HAVE HAD GOOD RESULTS AT OVER THE YEARS, AND I THINK IT'S PURELY A, A CONFERENCE (??) FACTOR.

JENNIFER MILLS
BOUNCING BACK TO THE AUGUSTA COMMENTS BEFORE THOUGH, YOU MENTIONED THAT COURSE NOT SETTING UP WELL FOR YOU, YOU SAID BECAUSE OF THE LENGTH FACTOR.

LOREN ROBERTS
MHMM

JENNIFER MILLS
EVERYONE WOULD IMMEDIATELY SAY BUT WAIT A MINUTE, THE BEST PUTTER

LOREN ROBERTS
YEAH

JENNIFER MILLS
IS GOING TO DO WELL AT AUGUSTA BECAUSE THOSE ARE THE TOUGHEST GREENS.

LOREN ROBERTS
WELL, THEY'RE, THEY'RE TOUGH AND I MADE A LOT OF LONG PUTTS THERE THIS YEAR, BUT I THINK IT'S SUCH A, IT'S SUCH A SECOND SHOT GOLF COURSE BECAUSE YOU HAVE SO, SO LITTLE AREA TO GET THE BALL CLOSE TO THE HOLE. IT'S THE ONLY PLACE THAT I KNOW OF, THAT YOU KNOW, YOU CAN HIT A MARGINALLY PRETTY GOOD SHOT AND END UP IN A SPOT WHERE YOU KNOW YOU REALLY HAVE HANDCUFFS ON, SO YOU REALLY HAVE TO, HAVE TO HIT THE BALL WELL FROM TEE TO GREEN AND OBVIOUSLY LENGTH PLAYS A BIG FACTOR THERE, BUT I WAS REALLY THRILLED AT THE WAY I PLAYED THERE THIS YEAR.

JENNIFER MILLS
AS FAR AS THE PUTTING, ARE THOSE THE MOST DIFFICULT GREENS YOU PUTT?

LOREN ROBERTS
I, I, I THINK SO. WHEN YOU CONSIDER THE SPEED AND THE SLOPE AND, AND THE IMAGINATION YOU HAVE TO HAVE THERE IS, YOU HAVE TO BE RIGHT ON TOP OF IT.

JENNIFER MILLS
DO YOU HAVE A PREFERENCE OF GRASSES? I KNOW YOU CAME FROM CALIFORNIA

LOREN ROBERTS
MHMM

JENNIFER MILLS
OVER WAS IT TOUGH GETTING USED TO THE BERMUDA?

LOREN ROBERTS
NO, I REALLY DON'T CARE. IN FACT, NOW, MOST OF THE BERMUDA GREENS WE PLAY ON, YOU KNOW THEY CAN, THEY MOW THEM DOWN AND THEY'RE QUICK. A LOT LIKE BENT, EVEN THOUGH THERE IS GRAIN TO THEM. THEY DO A LOT OF OVER SEEDING, ESPECIALLY IN THE WINTER TIME, WITH, YOU KNOW POTRIVIALIS (??) LIKE THEY DO OUT HERE AT BAY HILL AND THEY'RE PROBABLY SOME OF THE BEST GREENS THAT WE, WE PUTT ON.

JENNIFER MILLS
LATER ON THIS YEAR, NOT TOO LONG AGO, YOU COMPETED IN THE PRESIDENTS CUP, A CAPTAIN'S

LOREN ROBERTS
MHMM

JENNIFER MILLS
PICK BY KEN VENTURI

LOREN ROBERTS
MHMM

JENNIFER MILLS
CERTAINLY VALIDATED THAT CHOICE

LOREN ROBERTS
YEAH

JENNIFER MILLS
WITH A TWO ONE AND `0' RECORD, A COUPLE OF WINS, ONE ALONG SIDE A GOOD FRIEND OF YOURS

LOREN ROBERTS
YEAH

JENNIFER MILLS
WITH PAUL AND, AND IN THAT PARTICULAR DAY I THINK THAT WAS THE SECOND, THE SECOND MATCH, YOU WERE JUST LIGHTS OUT WITH THE PUTTER THERE

LOREN ROBERTS
YEAH THAT, THAT WAS, THAT WAS A SPECIAL DAY, PAUL, I CONSIDER PAUL A GREAT FRIEND AND I THINK WE REALLY FED OFF OF EACH OTHER THAT DAY AND YOU KNOW, I HIT A COUPLE OF POOR SHOTS EARLY AND, AND WE GOT DOWN IN THE MATCH BUT THEN WE WERE ABLE TO COME BACK AND, AND PAUL HIT SOME GREAT SHOTS AND I MADE SOME GREAT PUTTS AT THE RIGHT TIME. I THINK WE HAD A STRETCH THERE WHERE WE MADE ABOUT 5 BIRDIES IN A ROW, AND WHEN YOU DO THAT, AND, IN ALTERNATE SHOT YOU KNOW, YOU'RE, YOU'RE REALLY GOING TO YOU KNOW, HURT SOMEBODY.

JENNIFER MILLS
FROM, FROM 8 TO 12.

LOREN ROBERTS
YEAH

JENNIFER MILLS
I KNOW YOU GUYS WERE LIGHTS OUT. HOW, HOW SPECIAL WAS THAT TO YOU TO BE A PART OF THAT TEAM?

LOREN ROBERTS
WELL IT WAS VERY, VERY SPECIAL UM FOR, YOU KNOW, CAN YOU, YOU ALWAYS HOPE THAT, THAT GUYS NOTICE YOU AND, AND, AND HE'S BEEN WATCHING EVERYBODY PLAY OUT HERE FOR 30 PLUS YEARS ON TOUR. IT WAS, IT WAS REALLY SPECIAL TO BE PICKED BY HIM, UH, YOU KNOW HE'S A LEGEND IN GOLF AND ALSO TO BE ON THE TEAM TO GO BACK WHERE HE WON THE U.S. OPEN, CONGRESSIONAL, JUST DOWN THE ROAD FROM WHERE WE PLAYED, AND TO WIN IT IN SUCH A CONVINCING FASHION, I, JUST, I, THAT'S, THAT'S PROBABLY, THAT, THAT MIGHT BE THE HIGHLIGHT OF MY, YOU KNOW, MY CAREER ON THE TOUR AND AROUND GOLF IS TO BE ON THAT TEAM, BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE BEING ON THAT TEAM I'M AROUND, I WAS THERE WITH THE FUTURE OF GOLF. YOU KNOW, WITH TIGER AND DAVID AND DAVIS AND I FELT LIKE I WAS ON THE SAME TEAM, YOU KNOW, AT, AT AN OLDER AGE FOR ME AND I WAS ABLE TO BE ABLE TO SEE THE FUTURE OF GOLF AND PLAY THERE WITH THEM.
