Q & A with...Ben Simpson and Emma Talley!

Q: Who is your role model?

B: My dad. He works really hard.
E: Annika Sorenstam. She has a good attitude and a great personality

Q: If you could live in any decade, which decade would you live in?

B: I would live in the 60s because it seems like it would be more fun than this one.
E: I would want to live in the 70s. They have hippies and good music, and it just seems so peaceful.

Q: If you could play golf with anyone, who would you play with and where?

B: I would play with Tiger Woods at Augusta.
E: Annika Sorenstam because she is my role model and she is retiring. I think I would want to play at Pebble Beach.

Q: How did your golf career get started?

B: My grandfather is the reason I got started in golf. I got started around the age of seven.
E: We live on the No. 16 fairway at the course by our house, and my brother was going to play but ended up not playing. No one in my family plays, so I thought I would take it on with every other sport I play. My parents wanted whatever I wanted, so they agreed. Next year, golf will be the only sport I play.

Q: What is the best part about being from Kentucky?

B: The best part is all the horse racing!
E: Everyone asks me where I am from because of my accent. I like my accent. Also, everyone here is nice and you know everyone being from here.

Q: What is one thing you want to do in your lifetime?

B: I want to play in the Masters before the age of 24.
E: Skydive! I want to do it sometime in the near future, but first I need to fly over a mountain. I think that's scarier than skydiving!

Q: Do you have any hidden talents?

B: I'm pretty good at ping-pong!
E: I am a karaoke champ. Really, I'm not a good singer, but I still love to do it. Oh, and I'm very social. I can walk up to anyone and just strike up a conversation.

Q: If you could have an accent from anywhere, where would you want your accent to be from?

B: I would like to have a Boston accent.
E: I want a British accent. Everytime I try to do a British accent, people make fun of me. My country accent comes out too much, so I can't do it.
