Q: A lot of people are saying great things about your speech (at your grandpa’s memorial service). Were you nervous about that?

SAUNDERS: Incredibly. More nervous than I’ve ever been in my life. More than anything, the company that I was speaking with. I’m a professional golfer, not a professional speaker. So my mindset was I’ll let them do the professional speaking and I’ll just try to do my best. I was very fortunate to somehow find the composure up there to say what I wanted to say.
