It's awesome, these young American players. The future of the LPGA is very bright.
They are the future of the LPGA Tour,

I think you've got to bury them, and that's hard to do. But I'm excited because I saw some good golf out there.
She's a child off the golf course and a woman on it,
Definitely. I feel that playing the course just makes my players more comfortable, not just with the golf course but with each other and what they're going to share and how they bond.
I love the challenge.
Our players are mad, but it's good mad.
The pressure makes me more intent about each shot. Pressure on the last few holes makes me play better.
I really thought she would put Laura Davies first. Laura is like that. 'Let me go, I want to go.
I think people questioned why I played the rookies on the first day. I thought if they were the players I thought they were, they'd be OK after one or two holes, and they did great.
Everybody seems to be coming around with their game right at the same time.
For so long, we were, like, where are the American players That question was asked many times,
There was a lot of bonding going on out there today.
They're not rookies to me. They played like veterans. They were awesome. I knew I had to use them. They were the best players coming in here. I had to trust them.
They're not rookies to me. I had to trust them, and I knew they could do it.
My swing is no uglier than Arnold Palmer's, and it's the same ugly swing every time.
Paula can't wait to get out of the gate. She's ready to play, so I felt playing her first was important. She has not stopped talking about playing in this event. She's excited. I love it. I want her to get out there and do it.

I'm kind of old-fashioned. I think women should play with women and men should play with men. If she wants to win -- if her goal on the PGA Tour is to win -- I don't think it will ever happen.
I talk to them if there's something I think they need to ease up on, ... But they're grown women. If there's something you feel, you might have to bite your tongue a little bit. That's called teamwork.
You know when you're down, if you're on home soil, they're there to root you on. They're like Come on, keep going, you can do it, let's go,' ... When you mess up over there or you don't play as well or you play a hole terribly, it's almost like you feel it 10 times worse.
I think that the relationships that I formed with the players that I've played against in the past years, and the new players of today, it's just very special to me, and I hold it very dear to my heart. I would say it ranks as the best thing that's ever happened to me in LPGA golf.
I really struggled these last few years wondering what was going to happen, who our superstars were going to be,
The Legends Tour offers a place where I can continue to compete with some of the greatest names in women's golf. Our events are enjoyable for fans, players and sponsors, and I look forward to playing The Legends Tour for years to come.
