As a kid, I wanted to be a pro tennis player. I was pretty good; at the tennis academies I attended, I always 'played up' against older age groups.
I almost didn't turn pro at all. I was tempted to be a career amateur. I worked as an investment banker for nine months after I got out of school, and the money was fantastic and promised to get even more lucrative.
I'm helpless in post-round, hole-by-hole interviews. I can't take you through most of the holes of winning the Players Championship, the U.S. Amateur or Ryder Cup matches. It's like golf amnesia.
I like to challenge myself. There are not many guys on tour who can give me a challenge in Ping-Pong. So I'll throw some points to see if I can come back.
I found an instructor, Chris O'Connell, who helped me. He turned me into the player I am today - a consistent golfer.
I grew up admiring Phil Mickelson. He loves competing, and he loves the fans' support, similar to me. In terms of my playing style, Steve Stricker and I are similar.
Golf has always been a game where you have to control both ends of the club.
I'm happiest playing a match with my dad and a couple of college friends, taking a few bucks off them.
Even if you finish the year at No. 1 in the world, and Tiger Woods has done this, you can still probably get better.
I had a temper when I played junior golf and had my clubs taken away for slamming them on the ground. I learned very quickly that I didn't want my clubs taken away from me.
