PETER KESSLER
AND HERE'S A QUESTION THAT WAS SUBMITTED TODAY, SERGIO, FOR YOU, FROM TODD IN CLEVELAND. THE EUROPEAN RYDER CUP TEAM WILL NOT

FEATURE ALL OF EUROPE'S BEST PLAYERS BECAUSE OF THE ODD SELECTION PROCESS. WHAT HAS TO HAPPEN FOR EUROPE TO FIELD IT'S BEST TEAM IN THE FUTURE?

SERGIO GARCIA
AH, WELL, THAT'S, THAT'S A REALLY TOUGH QUESTION. IT'S, UNFORTUNATELY IT'S NOT IN OUR HANDS BUT I DON'T KNOW, I'LL PROBABLY SAY THE BEST WAY TO, TO PICK, WELL YOU CAN SAY THE

BEST, THE STRONGEST EUROPEAN RYDER CUP TEAM WILL BE PROBABLY ON THE (??41:19) RANKINGS, BUT YOU KNOW, UNFORTUNATELY IT'S NOT LIKE THAT AND

UNFORTUNATELY TOO, JIMENEZ, OR OLAZABAL, OR JASPER OR ME WE'RE, WE'RE NOT ABLE TO PLAY AS MUCH AS WE WOULD LIKE IN EUROPE BUT HOPEFULLY,

YOU KNOW, WE'LL, WE'LL, WE COULD, I THINK PROBABLY THREE OUT OF THE FOUR GUYS WE CAN STILL MAKE, I MEAN, WE, WE CAN ALL MAKE IT IF WE PLAY WELL HERE. THE BRITISH OPEN, THE PGA,
BUT IT'S, IT'S TOUGH, I MEAN I THINK THAT

THE MAJORS ARE HARD ENOUGH TO PUT SOME EXTRA PRESSURE ON YOURSELF TO TRY TO MAKE THE RYDER CUP TEAM ON THOSE TOURNAMENTS.

PETER KESSLER
YEAH WE'VE GOT A LIST OF SOME OF THE PLAYERS WHO ARE CURRENTLY NOT ON THE TEAM, ALL OF WHICH I THINK YOU WOULD WANT ON THE TEAM. LET'S GO AHEAD AND TAKE A LOOK AT WHO THOSE PLAYERS ARE. I MEAN THIS IS A PRETTY TOUGH GROUP TO DO WITHOUT, ISN'T IT?

SERGIO GARCIA
YEAH, WELL FOR SURE IT IS AND YOU KNOW, YOU HAVE COLIN, BUT I THINK COLIN IS GOING TO BE ABLE TO MAKE IT AND MIGUEL ANGEL AND FALDO'S PLAYING WELL. BERNHARD IS PLAYING

EXTREMELY WELL HERE AND OF COURSE JESPER BUT UH YOU KNOW, HOPEFULLY, OUT OF THOSE, OUT OF THOSE SIX, HOPEFULLY AT LEAST FOUR OR FIVE WILL MAKE IT AND THEN WELL, YOU CAN ALWAYS PICK A COUPLE.

PETER KESSLER
YOU GET, YOU GET FOUR OR FIVE WHO WILL MAKE IT, YOU'RE IN GOOD SHAPE BECAUSE IF WE TAKE A LOOK AT THE WAY THE TEAM STANDINGS ARE NOW AND WITH NO DISRESPECT TO THE PLAYERS

WHO ARE CURRENTLY ON THE TEAM, THIS TEAM NEEDS A COUPLE MORE SUPERSTARS IN ORDER TO BE COMPETITIVE WITH THE AMERICAN SIDE.

SERGIO GARCIA
YEAH WELL I'LL SAY MORE THAN ANYTHING IT NEEDS SOME PLAYERS THAT PLAY MORE RYDER CUPS.

I'VE ONLY PLAYED ONCE BUT, YOU KNOW, AT LEAST YOU KNOW WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO BE UP THERE BUT GUYS LIKE, OF COURSE, LANGER, OR FALDO, OR JIMENEZ

OR OF COURSE, MONTGOMERIE, I THINK THEY, THEY NEED TO BE IN THAT, IN THAT TEAM TO BE STRONG ENOUGH TO, TO BE ABLE TO, TO MEET THE, THE U.S. GUYS.

PETER KESSLER
A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE SAYING THAT TIGER'S COMPETITION ISN'T GOING TO COME FROM THE PLAYERS WHO ARE OLDER THAN HIM, THAT TIGER'S

COMPETITION IS REALLY GOING TO COME FROM YOU, AND ADAM SCOTT AND AARON BADLEY AND CHARLIE HOWELL. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF, OF THAT LINE OF THINKING?

SERGIO GARCIA
WELL PROBABLY, PROBABLY IT'S RIGHT BECAUSE WE'RE GOING TO BE THERE MORE TIME BECAUSE WE'RE YOUNGER AND YOU KNOW, IT'S NOT THE SAME THING WHEN YOU'RE 40 AND WHEN YOU'RE 22 AND IN TEN YEARS, THE GUY

WHO'S 40 IS GOING TO BE 50 AND THEN YOU'RE GOING TO BE 32 SO FOR SURE, LONG TERM, IT WILL BE. I THINK THAT, RIGHT NOW, YOU CAN STILL HAVE A LOT OF GUYS OLDER THAN, THAN TIGER THAT CAN, THAT CAN GIVE YOU MORE RUN AND

BUT LONG TERM I'LL SAY THAT PROBABLY, HOPEFULLY THOSE GUYS THAT YOU MENTIONED WILL BE, WILL BE OUT THERE.

PETER KESSLER
I WAN T YOU TO JUST DESCRIBE FOR ME, AS WE TAKE A LOOK AT IT TOGETHER, THE WINNING PUTT FROM THE '99 GERMAN MASTERS WHICH I THINK YOU'LL REMEMBER FROM JUST A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO. LET'S TAKE A LOOK AND TELL US ABOUT IT AS WE GO TO BREAK.

SERGIO GARCIA
WELL... IT WAS, IT WAS JUST A GREAT PUTT. I MADE A GREAT PUTT TO, TO CONTINUE ON THE PLAYOFF AND THIS PUTT, I HIT, I HIT A SIMILAR PUTT FROM

THE OTHER EDGE TO, TO, TO GO TO 12 UNDER ON THE TOURNAMENT AND I MISSED IT HIGH, SO I KNEW IT WASN'T GOING TO... OOH!

PETER KESSLER
(LAUGHS)

SERGIO GARCIA
SORRY

PETER KESSLER
WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

SERGIO GARCIA
I DIDN'T, I DIDN'T KNOW.

PETER KESSLER
I WAS GOING TO TRY TO TELL YOU FIVE MORE SECONDS.

SERGIO GARCIA
OH!

(MUSIC CONTINUES)
