Tiger why is this say this skins game so important to you what you guys are hoping to accomplish today.
Well I mean I did it for -- and in the ask -- to come play this event and a game runaway since I cut.
This is tremendous opportunity for for his foundation to.
Bring awareness to us all along with -- obesity and in type two diabetes and I think that and more people had been made aware of it and is unfortunately it is a it's -- cause that's has been pretty much gone unnoticed and that we're bringing awareness that today.
You know I'm generally just switching gears for just a moment I I.
I can't imagine the wagering going on behind the said the skins game when you guys get on the course -- now with a couple friends of yours for a moment let's just talk a little bit about the game of golf.

And in general of the game of golf -- done so much deeper I'm.
Guys who have.
Laura rankings Tom I wanted to championships.
And now our first.
Asian born player wanted to championship and other I think that.
The game is becoming more global -- become more expensive and I think now.
That with why is -- is going to be incredible for.
Now in the peoples of South Korea but I think for for all of Asia that.
Person -- sort of the game very late managed.
Probably was like nineteen.
To have the success he's had one -- our tour and has won overseas and ultimately when he major championship.
A lot of being -- of of the difficult times that -- and you know look we're in one of the deepest -- that we've been historically.
And it's having any impact on sponsorship and ornaments and things of that nature I know you've experienced that with Buick -- others -- experience -- without other auto dealers.
How do you keep the focus on this sport that is an expensive sport that a lot kids would love to participating and black.
This is a difficult time to do that.
Absolutely SS I think this one -- the more difficult challenges that we've we've had to face -- all over.
Once all over the golf -- and off court I think is certainly has changed a lot of different things.
Just don't have the same access to them like they did through the caddie ranks and accessibility affordability -- is all different things that.
This has always been a struggle in the game of golf and you know I think -- -- -- doing this foundation but I tried to do with him the first tee has.
Has done -- our country.
These are all different things that.
Have they have been successful.
But ultimately we will need -- -- -- to provide.
Opted for any -- -- -- -- off Nam if they wanted to play golf to -- -- give them opportunity to play practice and then ultimately grow in the sport and that's also no one biggest challenge -- if we faced.
And -- know that I imagine that you -- since he gave back to Stanford and some fun times along the way.
Have seen a lot of changes in the game and and you both had given a lot back to the community.
Are we making a great progress and and if so where -- see the sport 510 years down the line.
I'm sorry can you say that again.
Poses in the feed there that's -- can't get stem from forty see this for going right now where what do you think the future looks like.
Well obviously with gulf you know being slated to be in the next Olympics.
Golf is is expanding its going going more global.
You know sport we used in in our foundation as a cornerstone of our program to soccer and I think that's the model as far as being.
Truly international land and golf I think has a tremendous opportunity to reach out to different countries and crossover a lot of socioeconomic barriers.
Players like YE Yang and through tiger's involvement and through the promotion and goodwill of the sport it's a sport that.
You know teachers so many good things to young young kids that.
I I see you know sky's the limit as far as.
Golf growing and other countries and hopefully you know starting their own first -- type of programs just to -- kids interest -- in the gaming given the opportunity.
Sort of experienced some of the the great things are both tired I've experienced in our lives.

Big majors the four majors are done this year but the players championship is coming up.
Some say you're a little less risky on the chorus year may be -- back a little.

It don't -- I'm just saying that you -- won the big major is you know you gotta get a lot under your belt.
But what next another players is coming up what -- -- to achieve on the course some say that you become a little more cautious on the course.
What he -- some of those critics.
War that's going from.
I heard the same thing after the PGA and so I checked had a two shot lead going all around.
-- -- -- -- -- You know it's just -- -- where now I think people have always been.
I always have their own perception of a certain things and people probably don't have all the -- this information and I'm operative -- -- predictive.
I'm being out there so.
It is what it is I know that have been the playoffs coming up there likes three weeks and then also a -- -- -- -- It's going to be.
