NICK PRICE: It was a lot. I had a reputation as a pretty good like a B plus, A minus player my entire career and my career had built up and I was consistent a consistent performer and then when I won that Major it sort of confirmed to people that, you know, I was a player and, what was I, 35 when I won my first Major?
I was going to be around for awhile. Then when I continued to win it was great for me because I had these opportunities coming from all around the world to go play in other tournaments and I always enjoyed playing around the world. I did that before I came over here full time.
So, I think it's important when you're No. 1, No. 2, No. 3 in the world that you do travel around the world because if Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player never came to my country I would never have known what championship golf was.
I think Tiger and Phil and I think a lot of those guys, Tiger has been really good. Phil needs to step up to the plate a little bit more and go and play some events more Overseas just to give the young kids you get when you're a kid you're so inspired by seeing these giants in golf come along.
When I saw Jack Nicklaus I thought he was ten feet tall. It was like I read so much about him. When I saw him actually play it made such a huge impact on me.
I watched him play and I could see he was human. This guy, he would hit some crappy shots. He didn't hit everything straight in the flag and hole long putts all the time.
That's what you need to do and I was lucky that I did that. When I look back on my career I don't have one regret, really.
Only regret I had, I wish I had won the British Open in '88 because it would have jump started me.
When Seve beat me at the Open, my confidence didn't take a hit. When you get over the first hurdle the boom, the flood gates opened. I think it would have happened for me a little earlier.
I probably would be sitting here with another 6, 7 tournaments under my belt, maybe another Major.
PHIL STAMBAUGH: Okay. We all done. Thanks, Nick.
NICK PRICE: No problem.
