Some of the leading players who will be appearing at the forthcoming Ballantine’s Championship in Korea, Anthony Kim unwinds with a glass of Ballantine’s in the clubhouse bar.
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?
Q. What’s your most treasured possession?
AK: My dog, Rocky.
Q. Who or what makes you laugh?

Q. Ballantine’s likes to “Leave an impression” – do you hope to do this in Korea?
