You get, you get asked about it a lot. You're a four-time major Champion about former world number one, and people are looking at you as the guy who's the kind of the loudest voice. Does that? Does that? We're on you after a while? No, I don't think so because if you believe in something, I think you have to, you have to speak up and I believe very strongly about this. I really do. I hear what it's doing to the game of golf. I hear it. Like I really do. I mean I get it's going to be hard for me to stomach going to Wentworth in a couple of weeks time and see an 18 of them there. Like that. Just it just doesn't sit right with me. So yeah, I feel strongly I believe, I believe what I'm saying all the right things and I think when you believe that what you're saying is the right things, you're you're happy to stick your neck out on the line.
