Q. One question, it's been a long time since you've been a non-exempt player on this Tour. I know in Atlanta, you had gotten the exemption, you weren't going to go, and it turned out you wanted to go, but the exemption was gone, then. Can you talk about what it's like in your case to be a non-exempt player out here now?
GREG NORMAN: Sometimes it feels fantastic because I'm a free man and I can go do whatever I want to do. But it's quite ironic this year, to tell you the truth. This year I would have played more tournaments as a nonmember than last year when I was a member. And that's just unfortunately the way last year worked out, unforeseen circumstances for me. I wish there was a better way to allow players the opportunity of going and playing a few more golf tournaments even though they're not members because I don't want to go overseas and play golf. I live here in the United States and I'd like to play golf here. But at the same time for me to be a member of the Tour here, I have to play 15 golf tournaments. 15 golf tournaments here, with my commitments in Australia adds up to too many golf tournaments. I'm in that no man's land, really.
It feels good to be a nonmember of the PGA TOUR, because I can really make the choice to go where I want to go. But it doesn't feel good, because when I want to go play more golf tournaments, I can't play golf tournaments. I've received a lot of invitations this year for a lot of tournaments to play, and I can't give them an answer, And that's a sad thing. And I actually make personal phone calls to every tournament director that's invited me, and I say here's the situation, instead of writing you a letter saying I'd love to play, but I can't. I have to explain why I didn't, nonmember in my position cannot accept an invitation for tournament play.
And, yes, you're right, Atlanta I wanted to play Atlanta, but because it was a week before Augusta, everybody dished out about (inaudible) -- those are the things you've got to live with.
