JENNIFER MILLS
(LAUGHING)


HE'S SAYING HIS DAUGHTER IS DIEING RIGHT NOW WATCHING HER PICTURE ON TV. YOU KNOW MEMPHIS IS A GREAT PLACE. YOU AND YOUR FAMILY, WE JUST SAW THEM LIVE IN MEMPHIS, AND THE CITY IS DOING A LOT FOR JUNIOR GOLF. WE HAVE A PHONE CALL

LOREN ROBERTS
IT IS

JENNIFER MILLS
FROM CHARLES HUDSON. HE HAS A QUESTION AND I THINK YOU ALL KNOW EACH OTHER PRETTY WELL.

LOREN ROBERTS
YEAH

JENNIFER MILLS
WELCOME CHARLES.

CHARLES FROM TENNESSEE

HELLO JENNIFER. HOW YOU DOING?

JENNIFER MILLS
GOOD THANK YOU.

LOREN ROBERTS
HEY CHARLES, HOW ARE YOU?

CHARLES FROM TENNESSEE

HEY LOREN.

JENNIFER MILLS
HOW'S THE COURSE?

CHARLES FROM TENNESSEE

OH, OKAY. OKAY. JUST, OF COURSE THIS IS MY FIRST TIME CALLING IN, BUT UH LOREN WAS, IS, IS ONE OF MY HEROES AND HE WROTE FOR ABOUT A TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY KIDS IN THE INNER CITY UH, NOT ONLY DOES HE DONATE HIS FUNDS By the ALSO IS OUT THERE PARTICIPATING IN GIVING OUR KIDS ONE ON ONE TUTORING. HE'S, AND HAS ALSO GOTTEN TO KNOW MOST OF OUR KIDS ON A ONE ON ONE BASIS SO HE'S DEFINITELY WITHOUT A DOUBT ONE OF THE HEROES OF OUR PROGRAM WHICH IS CALLED THE MID SOUTH JUNIOR GOLF ASSOCIATION.

LOREN ROBERTS
WELL CHARLES, THAT'S AWFULLY NICE OF YOU TO SAY THAT. I MEAN I, I APPRECIATE THAT. YOU KNOW CHARLES HAD THE VISION SEVERAL YEARS AGO TO START THIS MID SOUTH JUNIOR GOLF PROGRAM AND IT'S A YEAR LONG PROGRAM. IT'S JUST NOT ABOUT GOLF. IT'S ABOUT CHARACTER AND, GREAT PROGRAM AND I BELIEVE SINCE THEY HAVE GONE TO FIRST TEE AND THEY WERE BASICALLY FIRST TEE BEFORE THERE EVER WS A FIRST TEE

JENNIFER MILLS
MHMM

LOREN ROBERTS
SO AND I, I REALLY THINK THAT THEY HAVE BEEN A LEADER IN THIS TYPE OF JUNIOR GOLF PROGRAM AND I THINK IT'S BECAUSE OF CHARLES HUDSON'S VISION.

JENNIFER MILLS
CHARLES, THANKS FOR THE CALL. THAT'S GREAT. WE, WE GIVE BACK IN, YOU KNOW, WHENEVER WE CAN, AN DI KNOW THAT'S SOMETHING THAT THE PGA TOUR PLAYERS HAVE DONE, VERY, VERY WELL, AND, AND SHOULD BE RECOGNIZED FOR IT. I KNOW YOU GET SATISFACTION SEEING KIDS AND

LOREN ROBERTS
WELL

JENNIFER MILLS
PEOPLE TAKING UP THE GAME YOU LOVE.

LOREN ROBERTS
UH YEAH, I, I CAN'T THINK OF A BETTER GAME, YOU KNOW TO TEACH SELF DISCIPLINE AND SELF RELIANCE AND MOTIVATION AND UM, YOU KNOW, JUST GOLF'S A GREAT GAME. OBVIOUSLY IT'S BEEN A GREAT GAME FOR ME AND GOLF HAS GOT A LOT MORE MASS APPEAL TO IT, IT REALLY DOES.

JENNIFER MILLS
MHMM

LOREN ROBERTS
AND UH IT'S A GREAT GAME FOR THE FACT THAT YOU DON'T NEED ANYONE ELSE OUT THERE. IF YOU CAN'T FIND OTHER KIDS TO HANG WITH, IF YOU CAN GET TO A GOLF COURSE OR GET TO A DRIVING RANGE, YOU CAN, YOU CAN PLAY GOLF OR PARTICIPATE IN THE SPORT WITHOUT HAVING ANY, HAVING TO HAVE ANYONE ELSE THERE BE WITH YOU.

JENNIFER MILLS
YEAH. IT'S A GOOD SOLITARY SPORT. LET'S GO BACK TO THE PHONES. JOHN, FROM CALIFORNIA IS ON THE LINE, WELCOME JOHN.

JOHN FROM CALIFORNIA

HI. GOOD EVENING. THANK YOU, JENNIFER.

JENNIFER MILLS
YOU'RE WELCOME JOHN. HI LOREN.

LOREN ROBERTS
HEY JOHN

JOHN FROM CALIFORNIA

I JUST WANTED TO TAKE THE CHANCE TO TALK TO YOU. I'M KIND OF EXCITED ABOUT THIS. I'M A, I'M A FAN OF YOUR BECAUSE I'M A CAUPOLII (??) ALUMNI, MYSELF.

LOREN ROBERTS
ALRIGHT.

JOHN FROM CALIFORNIA

AND STILL LIVE IN CENTRAL CALIFORNIA.

LOREN ROBERTS
OKAY

JOHN FROM CALIFORNIA

AND AT THE SAME TIME I'VE ALWAYS BEEN BAFFLED BY THE FACT THAT WHY WOULD YOU LEAVE THIS BEAUTIFUL AREA TO GO TO MEMPHIS

LOREN ROBERTS
(LAUGHS)

JOHN FROM CALIFORNIA

WHICH IS NOT A BAD AREA, I HAVE FAMILY LIVES ABOUT 70 MILES NORTH

LOREN ROBERTS
UH HUH

JOHN FROM CALIFORNIA

BUT I'VE ALWAYS TRIED TO CATCH YOU AT THE AT & T AND ASK YOU THAT AND I'VE NEVER HAD ANY LUCK.

LOREN ROBERTS
OH, WELL YOU CAUGHT ME NOW. IT WAS STRICTLY, MY MOVE TO MEMPHIS WAS A DECISION, A CAREER DECISION TO BE CENTRALLY LOCATED. I THINK I GOT HUNG UP ONE TOO MANY TIMES WITH THE FOG IN SAN LOS OBISPOS AND COULDN'T GET HOME SUNDAY NIGHT, SO I DECIDED TO MOVE SOMEWHERE WHERE IT WAS A LITTLE EASIER TO TRAVEL SO I COULD SEE MY FAMILY A LOT MORE WHEN THE KIDS STARTED SCHOOL, AND THAT WAS THE MAIN REASON THAT I MOVED.

JENNIFER MILLS
THAT'S A REAL CONSIDERATION BECAUSE THERE'S JUST SO MUCH TRAVEL. LET'S CONTINUE WITH OUR PHONE CALLS. MARTY, FROM NORTH CAROLINA'S ON THE LINE. WELCOME MARTY.

MARTY FROM NORTH CAROLINA

OH THANKS, LOREN, I WANT TO KNOW HOW THE LOSS OF PAYNE STEWART HAS EFFECTED YOU AND THE OTHER PLAYERS ON THE TOUR.

LOREN ROBERTS
WELL, UM, YOU KNOW, IT. WE, WE ALL HAD A SPECIAL FEELING FOR PAYNE. HE WAS SUCH AN OUTGOING GUY AND HE JUST WAS A GREAT MOTIVATOR. HE LOVED TO PLAY IN THE TEAM EVENTS.


HE WAS SUCH A MOTIVATING FACTOR AT RYDER CUPS AND PRESIDENTS CUPS AND YOU COMBINE THAT WITH HIS FAITH THAT HE HAD FOUND IN THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS, AND UM HIS, HIS PASSING, I THINK, HAS, HAS TOUCHED MORE LIVES. GOLFERS AND NON GOLFERS, I THINK, THEN ANYBODY THAT I CAN REALLY REMEMBER .

AND UH HE IS ALWAYS GOING TO BE MISSED ALWAYS, AND, AND I HOPE THAT HIS, HIS LEGACY IS ALWAYS REMEMBERED, NOT ONLY FOR HIS GOLF, BECAUSE OF THE HUMAN BEING THAT HE WAS AND BECAUSE OF HIS FAITH AND

JENNIFER MILLS
YOU MENTIONED HOW HE WILL ALWAYS BE MISSED. WE WERE BOTH AT THE TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP AND THAT WAS, IT WAS AN ODD FEELING BECAUSE IT WAS A YEAR AGO.

LOREN ROBERTS
IT REALLY WAS, AND TO SEE THE SEGMENT ON THE BAG PIPER AT HOUSTON, GOING IN AND OUT OF THE MIST, I, I JUST UH I MEAN THAT WAS, THAT WAS SUCH AN EMOTIONAL DAY FOR EVERYONE THERE, AND I'M GLAD THAT I, THAT THAT, I THINK EMOTION WILL STILL BE THERE FOR YEARS TO COME.

JENNIFER MILLS
IT'S A WAY TO TAKE SOMETHING POSITIVE

LOREN ROBERTS
RIGHT

JENNIFER MILLS
AND MOVE FORWARD WITH IT.

LOREN ROBERTS
YEAH
