PETER KESSLER
WHY DON'T WE TAKE A LOOK AT SOMETHING THAT'S ALMOST AS DIFFICULT AS FOLLOWING YOUR BALL IN FLIGHT AT NIGHT, WHICH IS CHIPPING FROM BEHIND
THE 17TH GREEN AT VALDERAMA
 
MIKE WEIR
YEAH
 
PETER KESSLER
MAKE SURE YOU GET IT UP AND DOWN TO WIN YOUR FIRST WORLD GOLF CHAMPIONSHIP. SO LET'S PICK IT UP
 
MIKE WEIR
OKAY
 
PETER KESSLER
WITH MIKE'S CHIP ON THE LAST DAY FROM BEHIND THE GREEN, THE TOURNAMENT HE'S LEADING. WHERE DID YOU TRY TO HIT THE PITCH AT THIS POINT? DID YOU TRY TO KNOCK IT TO THE BACK OF THE GREEN?
 
MIKE WEIR
WHEN I WAS HITTING MY THIRD SHOT I WAS JUST TRYING TO PUT IT ON THE BACK OF THE GREEN BUT I WAS TRYING TO LAND IT EXACTLY WHERE IT LANDED. I THINK ONLY THE GUYS WHO PLAYED IN THE TOURNAMENT REALLY KNOW HOW DIFFICULT THAT SHOT WAS AND YOU
 
KNOW IT'S STRAIGHT DOWN HILL, DOWN WIND. YOU KNOW ROLLING RIGHT TO THAT WATER AND THAT WAS THE BEST SHOT BY FAR I HAD ALL WEEK. I MEAN, THAT, UNDER THAT, THOSE
 
CIRCUMSTANCES, WHEN YOU HIT THAT, THAT SHOT A LITTLE BIT TOO SOFT IT STAYS UP THERE AND THEN YOU GOT A VERY DIFFICULT CHIP OR ANOTHER LONG PUTT AND IF YOU HIT THAT, IF I HIT IT
 
JUST A TOUCH TOO HARD IT'S IN THE WATER SO, UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES THAT WAS PROBABLY ONE OF THE BEST SHOTS I'VE HIT UNDER PRESSURE.
 
PETER KESSLER
THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH THIS PUTT, EITHER.
 
MIKE WEIR
NO. IT WAS A GOOD ONE AND IT GAVE ME A NICE CUSHION GOING IN THERE. GOING INTO THE LAST HOLE FOR SURE. GOING WITH A THREE SHOT LEAD IN THE LAST HOLE WAS A, IT WAS A GREAT FEELING. IT WAS A GOOD FEELING TO WALK UP BEING ABLE TO SMILE ON THE LAST HOLE AND ENJOY IT A LITTLE BIT.
 
PETER KESSLER
YOU KEEP ELEVATING THE STAKES EVERY YEAR FROM THE TIME YOU PLAYED JUNIOR GOLF REALLY, TO PLAYING THE CANADIAN TOUR, YOUR SUCCESSFUL AMATEUR CAREER, AND NOW HERE WITH
YOUR, MOST IMPORTANT OF YOUR TWO WINS IN TERMS OF WHO WAS IN THE FIELD
 
MIKE WEIR
MHMM
 
PETER KESSLER
20:AT VALDERAMA. YOU HAVE TO HAVE A FEELING OF MORE THAN I BELONG BUT RATHER I'M WITH THE BEST PLAYERS IN THE WORLD AND I'VE PROVEN AGAIN, I CAN BEAT THEM. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF
 
IN TERMS OF GETTING BETTER TO GET TO THE NEXT LEVEL? WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO DO TO GET EVEN BETTER THAN YOU ARE NOW?
 
MIKE WEIR
WELL I HAVE TO DO THAT ON A MORE CONSISTENT LEVEL I THINK AND YOU KNOW I STILL STRUGGLE I THINK A LITTLE BIT WITH INCONSISTENCY, ESPECIALLY MY PUTTING. I FEEL LIKE I NEED TO BE A LITTLE BIT MORE CONSISTENT THAT WAY
 
BUT I THINK I JUST, YOU KNOW, IN THOSE SITUATIONS I JUST NEED TO YOU KNOW, EVEN THOUGH IT'S EARLY IN MY CAREER, I STILL WANT TO BE ABLE TO COME THROUGH AND PUT MYSELF IN THAT POSITION TO WIN A BIG TOURNAMENT
 
LIKE THAT MORE OFTEN, YOU KNOW. THE WORLD GOLF CHAMPIONSHIPS AND THE MAJORS ARE SUCH BIG TOURNAMENTS AND I HAVEN'T BEEN IN THAT POSITION ENOUGH AND I JUST WANT TO BE THERE A LITTLE BIT MORE OFTEN TO SEE, TO SEE HOW I CAN HANDLE IT.
 
PETER KESSLER
WHAT KIND OF A HUSBAND DO YOU TRY TO BE TO YOUR WIFE, BRICIA AND FATHER TO YOUR TWO DAUGHTERS?
 
MIKE WEIR
WELL I JUST TRY TO BE THERE FOR THEM. I JUST TRY TO BE, WHEN I'M HOME, JUST A REGULAR DAD LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE AND I ENJOY SPENDING TIME WITH MY FAMILY MORE THAN ANYTHING AND
 
THAT'S NUMBER ONE PRIORITY TO ME, SO WHEN I'M, WHEN I'M AT HOME I SPEND A LOT OF TIME WITH THEM. I DON'T PLAY MUCH GOLF AT ALL WHEN I'M HOME. I PRACTICE A LOT BUT I DON'T PLAY MUCH GOLF AT ALL. I PLAYED TWO ROUNDS OF GOLF OUTSIDE OF THE TOUR, I THINK,
 
LAST YEAR BESIDES A COUPLE OF THE OUTINGS I DO FOR MY SPONSORS BUT I LIKE TO SPEND THE TIME WITH THEM AND YOU KNOW, I'LL ZIP DOWN WHEN MY GIRLS ARE TAKING A NAP. I'LL GO OVER TO THE RANGE AND HIT SOME BALLS AND
 
THEN TRY TO BE BACK WHEN THEY, WHEN THEY WAKE UP.
 
PETER KESSLER
IT'S BEEN A GREAT PLEASURE TO HAVE YOU HERE. THANKS FOR SPENDING THE TIME WITH US, AND, AND THANKS TO YOUR FAMILY FOR LETTING YOU SPEND THE TIME WITH US.
 
MIKE WEIR
THANKS
 
PETER KESSLER
CONGRATULATIONS ON A GREAT CAREER AND ON THE THINGS TO COME.
 
MIKE WEIR
THANKS PETER. I ENJOYED IT.
 
PETER KESSLER
SO DID I, VERY MUCH. THANK YOU FOR BEING WITH US EVERYBODY. GOOD NIGHT.
