RICH LERNER
MEDIA GENERALLY LIKES GUYS WHO ARE QUOTABLE. YOU GOT HIGH MARKS IN THE AFTER MATH OF THE BYRON NELSON WHEN ASKED WHAT YOU WOULD DO WITH THE 810 THOUSAND DOLLAR FIRST PRIZE

CHECK YOU QUIPPED, I'M GOING TO KEEP IT OUT OF NAZDAK.

ROBERT DAMRON
YEAH

RICH LERNER
(LAUGHS)

ROBERT DAMRON
WELL THAT MADE SOME OF MY FINANCIAL ADVISOR BUDDIES UPSET BUT THAT'S IT. I, HEY THAT'S A LOT OF MONEY. WHY, WHY CUT IT IN HALF?

RICH LERNER
WHAT DID YOU LEARN FROM YOUR DAD ABOUT MONEY?

ROBERT DAMRON
WELL DAD IS ULTRA CONSERVATIVE BECAUSE OF THE WAY HE GREW UP WITH NO MONEY AND 'B', THE WAY HE RETIRED. OKAY, I HAVE THIS MUCH, I'M DONE, SO NOW, THIS IS AS RICH AS I'M GOING TO GET

AND I'M HAPPY WITH THAT, SO I, I, THE WAY I SEE IT, I MAKE MY MONEY BY MAKING BIRDIES AND PARS AND, AND EAGLES AND NOT BY MY INVESTMENTS OR ANYTHING THAT KEEPS ME UP AT NIGHT IS GOING TO HURT MY GOLF, SO, IF I'M WORRIED ABOUT WHERE MY MONEY IS

AND WHAT IT'S INVESTED IN, THEN I'M IN TROUBLE, SO I JUST TRY TO KEEP IT SAFE AND, AND FORGET I'VE GOT IT.

RICH LERNER
KEEP IT SAFE. KEEP IT SIMPLE.

ROBERT DAMRON
MHMM

RICH LERNER
ALRIGHT, LET'S TAKE A PHONE CALL. CASEY FROM SOUTH CAROLINA. HI YOU'RE ON GOLF TALK LIVE WITH ROBERT DAMRON.

CASEY, CALLER FROM SOUTH CAROLINA (MALE):
HEY ROBERT. HOW ARE YOU TONIGHT?

ROBERT DAMRON
DOING GREAT.

CASEY, CALLER FROM SOUTH CAROLINA (MALE):
GOOD. LISTEN, I WANTED TO, BY THE WAY I'M CADDYING AT THE PGA IN ATLANTA SO I LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU DOWN THERE.

ROBERT DAMRON
ALRIGHT

CASEY, CALLER FROM SOUTH CAROLINA (MALE):
BEST OF LUCK TO YOU.

ROBERT DAMRON
THANK YOU

CASEY, CALLER FROM SOUTH CAROLINA (MALE):
I WANTED TO ASK YOU, I KNOW WHEN I PLAY WITH SOME GUYS, YOU KNOW, SOME GUYS ARE BETTER BALL STRIKERS THAN OTHERS

ROBERT DAMRON
MHMM

CASEY, CALLER FROM SOUTH CAROLINA (MALE):
AND WANTED TO ASK YOU, WHO IS THE BEST BALL STRIKER YOU'VE EVER PLAYED WITH AND WHY DO YOU THINK THAT

THEY'RE THE BEST BALL STRIKER YOU'VE EVER, EVER PLAYED WITH? AMATEUR OR PROFESSIONAL.

ROBERT DAMRON
WELL, THERE'S NO QUESTION THAT BALL STRIKING SETS APART THE TOP PLAYERS FROM THE REST OF THE FIELD. IT SETS APART THE NICK PRICES, IT SETS APART THE NICK FALDOS, THE VIJAY SINGHS AND THE TIGER WOODS BECAUSE IF YOU'RE

CONSISTENTLY MISSING LESS GREENS AND YOU'RE CONSISTENTLY HITTING THE BALL CLOSER TO THE HOLE, IT'S HARD TO LOOSE (LAUGHS) AND, AND IF YOU NOTICE THE GUYS ARE, ARE STREAKY PUTTERS. THE BEST PLAYERS. FRED COUPLES, DAVIS LOVE, GUYS LIKE THAT. NICK PRICE, SO,

THE BEST I'VE EVER SEEN? VIJAY PROBABLY. HE'S, HE'S AWESOME. I'VE NEVER PLAYED WITH FREDDIE COUPLES BUT MAN, HE'S GOOD ON THE RANGE. (LAUGHS)


BUT PROBABLY VIJAY. IT, IT'S, YOU CAN JUST SEE THE CONFIDENCE WHEN HE STANDS OVER A SHOT THAT HE KNOWS WHAT IT'S GOING TO DO.

RICH LERNER
YEAH. WELL GREENS HIT IS THE MONEY STATISTIC.

ROBERT DAMRON
IT, IT DEFINITELY IS.

RICH LERNER
YOU, YOU, YOU HIT

ROBERT DAMRON
IT'S ON THE RATED STATS .

RICH LERNER
YEAH WELL YOU, YOU'RE GOING TO GO THROUGH PERIODS WHERE YOU DON'T MAKE PUTTS, WHERE IT SCARES THE HOLE

ROBERT DAMRON
MHMM

RICH LERNER
BUT AS YOU SAID, IF YOU, YOU CAN CONSISTENTLY HIT 67-8, 70 % OF YOUR GREENS, YOU'RE GOING TO MAKE A LITTLE MONEY.

ROBERT DAMRON
WELL A GUY THAT I'VE PLAYED A LOT OF GOLF WITH IS SCOTT HOCH.

RICH LERNER
OOH

ROBERT DAMRON
HE HITS THE BALL WITH HIS IRONS SO WELL IT, IT'S FRIGHTENING AND HE ALWAYS HAS, AND IT'S JUST A KNACK THAT HE'S GOT AND YOU KNOW, THE GUYS GOT MORE TOP TENS THAN ALMOST ANYONE PROBABLY.

RICH LERNER
YEAH. ANOTHER SHORT BREAK. COME BACK, FIND OUT WHAT'S AHEAD FOR ROBERT DAMRON WHEN WE COME BACK IN JUST A MOMENT. STAY WITH US.
