PERSONAL NOTES

Born on island of Wando, which did not have a golf course when K.J. was growing up

Son of a rice farmer, Choi never saw a golf club until he took up the game at age 16 at the advice of a high school athletics coach

Until taking up golf, main interest was weightlifting, where he earned the nickname "Tank" because he could squat 350 pounds, despite weighing only 95 pounds

Led Korea Tour Order of Merit in 1997

Played on Korea World Cup team in 1997 at Kiawah Island, which led him to the U.S. and the PGA Tour

Member of International Presidents Cup teams in 2003 and '07.
