Q. What's your favourite golf course?

AK: Every course I win on.

Q. Which player do you most admire?

AK: Tiger Woods.

Q. What's the best shot you've ever hit?

AK: My approach shot on the par-4 12th in the third round of the Houston Open earlier this month. I'd pulled my drive and left myself with a lot to do - a tough shot in from an awkward stance with a pond on the other side of the green, but I took a wedge and hit it to within a foot for birdie. I told my caddie, "If I don't hit this perfectly, it's going to go 50 yards in the water."

Q. Do you get nervous?

AK: Absolutely!

Q. What's your most treasured possession?

AK: My dog, Rocky.

Q. Who or what makes you laugh?

AK: My friends.

Q. What would you be doing if you weren't a professional golfer?

AK: Really tough question! I honestly can't say.

Q. When was the last time you shouted at the TV?

AK: About five minutes ago!

AK: Not really.

Q. What's your favourite movie?

AK: The Hangover - it's absolutely hilarious.

Q. How do you relax after a round?

AK: I like to watch reality TV.

Q. Ballantine's likes to "Leave an impression" - do you hope to do this in Korea?

AK: Yes, for sure. My Korean heritage is very important to me and I always feel fortunate to visit Korea.

Q. What would you like written on your gravestone?

AK: That I helped change other people's lives in a positive way.
