I'M, I'M, I'M PLAYING TO WIN BUT I'VE DEDICATED THE LAST 5 YEARS OF MY CAREER ON THE REGULAR TOUR AND MAYBE LONGER TO, TO HAVING FUN. ENJOYING THE GAME MORE. I ALWAYS FELT, STARTING LATE, THAT I HAD TO REALLY PUSH MYSELF A LOT TO, TO PLAY CATCH UP AND UH NOW I WANT TO DEVOTE MYSELF TO, TO JUST REALLY TRY AND ENJOY, JUST PLAYING THE GAME, PLAYING THE GOLF COURSES, HITTING SHOTS, LEARNING MORE ABOUT THE GAME. THIS IS A GAME THAT YOU NEVER, EVER COMPLETELY MASTER. YOU CAN ALWAYS LEARN SOMETHING AND THAT'S, THAT'S WHY I WANT TO SPEND THE NEXT FOUR AND A HALF, FIVE YEARS DOING.

LOREN ROBERTS
I'M, I'M YEAH IN FACT THAT'S ONE OF THE REASONS THAT I CAME HOME EARLY UM I NEED TO SPEND THESE TWO MONTHS REALLY GETTING BACK INTO SHAPE. I, I, TO BE HONEST WITH YOU, I RAN OUT OF GAS THE LAST MONTH OF THE SEASON AND I WAS RUNNING ON EMPTY AND, I, I WANT TO BE SURE THAT I AM ABLE TO PLAY A GOOD SOLID TEN MONTHS NEXT YEAR WITHOUT TIRING.

JENNIFER MILLS
DO AN. EITHER OF YOUR DAUGHTERS OR YOUR WIFE PLAY? DO YOU HAVE OTHER GOLFERS IN THE FAMILY?

LOREN ROBERTS
I HAVE, MY NINE YEAR OLD DAUGHTER IS, IS INTERESTED AND WANTS TO GO TO THE GOLF COURSE AND PRACTICE NOW SO I'M PRETTY EXCITED ABOUT THAT AND MY WIFE DOESN'T PLAY. I THINK SHE PLAYS ONCE A YEAR IN A FUND RAISER AND THEN SAYS IT'S THE MOST EXCRUCIATING DAY

JENNIFER MILLS

LOREN ROBERTS
OF THE YEAR FOR HER.

JENNIFER MILLS
NOT AS EXCRUCIATING AS WHEN YOU HIT HER WITH A GOLF BALL.

LOREN ROBERTS
THAT'S RIGHT, NO.

LOREN ROBERTS
THAT'S RIGHT, YEAH THAT'S RIGHT
