"I'm pretty sure when Derek Jeter pulled into Yankee Stadium last night he wasn't made aware of key sponsors, but I promise you Brittany Lincicome was when she signed in for the CN Women's Canadian Open."
Q: I've always thought your players were great with media and fans.
A: "I didn't teach our players how to be more customer centric. They taught me. All I did was make sure that mentality went from head to toe in the organization. I feel pretty comfortable to say that it does. I've also said, and it's true, that of all the commissioners in all the sports, I've got to be the one who spends the least amount of time worrying about their athletes.

"I think there was a time not too long ago where you threw a blanket over about 10 names, plus or minus, and I could probably pick my winner. You'd have a terrible time in Vegas now with the LPGA because it's just so competitive, so deep.
"It's not only all parts of the world. It's all ages. We have incredible 18-year-olds, 28-year-olds and 38-year-olds. It's a pretty interesting time on tour."
Q: Did you find this job, or did it find you?
A: "Oh, it found me. … "I have zero experience leading a league of athletes. I remember saying the only time I'll be comfortable in this job is when I'm sitting across the table from a title sponsor, because I've done a title sponsor for just about every sport in the world. …
"I think I probably led the league in rookie mistakes my first year."
