He didn't become a great champion for nothing and he didn't get there by laughing. When you get into the back end of a championship, John goes into serious mode and really gets into his analysis. And that's when he comes out with some really fascinating stuff because that's when he reaches back into his own career and puts himself into the situation that guys are experiencing.
Hazel interviews, and is dwarfed by, Ernie Els at last year's World Matchplay
Steve (Davies), on the other hand, has a dry sense of humour, so the two work off each other perfectly. But Steve has become almost a national gurning champion because he expresses himself a lot more with his facial expressions.
He used to be poker-faced at the table and was once known as the Romford Robot. But nothing could be further from that now.
You work with some golfing legends as analysts. How have they helped you?
Gosh! Peter Alliss, Sam Torrance and Ken Brown are fantastically helpful. I'm always learning from them and learning when I listen to their delivery, their knowledge and their expertise. All of them have different personalities and bring something different to the broadcast. That's why I think we work well together as a team.
As a student, what do you remember about St Andrews and how women were treated as golfers?
It's a long time ago but I was around a 12 handicapper and played for the University. Women golfers were treated very well. We used to take guests round the halls of residence and play golf for at least six weeks of the year. It was marvellous. Today, my handicap's around 16-18 and I still love to play when I can.
Women's professional golf...how has it developed in your opinion?
Women's pro golf is brilliant. I have presented the Women's Open for 16 years and remember Pattie Sheehan winning that first one when it was cut short because of the weather.
I have marvelled at women's golf - its development and its profile over the last few years. It's so healthy. If you look at the phenomenal achievements of Annika Sorenstam and in Lorena Ochoa, it's fantastic that you've got someone who is genuinely reaching similar heights to Tiger Woods.
I mean, they don't text each other about their latest major wins for nothing! They know one another well and regard themselves as equals. They respect each other's ability.
I think women's golf has developed beyond all measure in the years I've been presenting it and it's fantastic to see a new generation of players coming into the game, including Ochoa and Paul Creamer, exciting young women who are so passionate about their sport and with a touch of elegance about them. They're bringing golf to a whole new audience, rather like Tiger did but in their own way. They are attracting attention for terrific reasons.
