PETER KESSLER
A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO AT MEDINA, A WEEK THAT YOU ALSO VISITED US ON THIS SHOW, AND I APPRECIATED THAT, I TOOK A LOOK, AFTER YOU HIT YOUR TEE SHOT ON 16 AS YOU WERE STARTING TO CREEP IN ON TIGER'S LEAD AND SAW THAT IT WAS

NOT ONLY DIRECTLY BEHIND A TREE BUT IT WAS IN BETWEEN TWO LARGE ROOTS AND I WENT OVER, AS YOU WERE WALKING DOWN THE FAIRWAY, AND I LOOKED DOWN AND LOOKED AT IT AND

SAID, HE HAS ABSOLUTELY NO PLAY EXCEPT LITERALLY SIDEWAYS. I DIDN'T EVEN THINK YOU COULD ADVANCE THE BALL A LITTLE LET ALONE ALMOST A COUPLE OF HUNDRED YARDS TO THE GREEN. WHAT DID YOU SEE THAT THE REST OF US MISSED, AS WE TAKE A LOOK AT THIS SHOT?

SERGIO GARCIA
I DON'T KNOW. IT WAS, TO ME IT WAS A VERY CRUCIAL MOMENT BECAUSE I WAS RIGHT BEHIND TIGER, I WAS PLAYING VERY WELL, I JUST MADE A BOGIE ON 15 AND, I DON'T KNOW, I, I STARTED LOOKING

AND, FIRST OF ALL I SAW, OF COURSE, WHERE I COULD HIT IT. I COULD HIT IT PROBABLY ABOUT 30 YARDS, 35 YARDS. THAT WAS MY FIRST THOUGHT BUT THEN I'M THINKING, WELL, I MEAN IF I HIT IT

THERE THEN I'M NOT GOING TO HAVE A DECENT SHOT. I'M PROBABLY GOING TO MAKE FIVE BECAUSE IT'S NOT A PIN THAT YOU REALLY CAN GO FOR, AND I SAID

WELL, IF I'M GOING TO LAY UP, I'M NOT,
I'M NOT GOING TO WIN THIS
TOURNAMENT, SO, I SAW, I KNEW IT WAS A DANGEROUS SHOT BUT I SAW AN OPENING. I, I THOUGHT WELL, YOU KNOW, IF I, IF I KIND OF START IT LIKE 40 YARDS LEFT OF

THE GREEN, I OPEN THE FACE AND TRY TO HIT IT HIGH SO IT DOESN'T HIT THE ROAD IN FRONT, TRY TO GO STEEP ON IT SO I DON'T HIT THE ONE BEHIND, HOPEFULLY IT WILL GO RIGHT AND EVEN IF I, EVEN IF I

DON'T SLICE IT AS MUCH AS I HAVE TO, IF I CAN, IF I HIT IT LEFT OF THE GREEN, LIKE TEN YARDS LEFT OF THE GREEN, I, I HAVE A NICE UPHILL CHIP AND I CAN GET UP AND DOWN FROM THERE, AND YOU KNOW,

FORTUNATELY IT, IT CAME PERFECT. I HIT, I HIT AN ABSOLUTE PERFECT SHOT AND IT WAS, IT WAS SOMETHING REALLY NICE TO, TO BE ABLE TO DO.

PETER KESSLER
