[100th episode special] Pro golfer K.J. Choi, a.k.a the 'Tank'






We have invited a very special guest for the 100th episode of The INNERview, which began airing in November 2012. It's none other than K.J. Choi, who became the first Asian golfer to win 8 PGA tournaments and who has established a charity foundation to give back to society. K.J. Choi, referred to as the "Black Tank" by the American media, has had a strong influence on and off the field, with some people even saying,“If God chose Tiger Woods, K.J. Choi moved God.”


K.J. Choi, born and raise on Wando Island, picked up a golf club for the first time at the age of 16 and relocated to Seoul to receive specialized training. After turning pro, he became the top prize winner for two consecutive years in 1996 and 1997 and was indisputably the top pro golfer in the country. Later, he even became the first Korean to earn a PGA Tour card, and gradually made his way up the ladder. In July 2007, he set a new record, becoming the first Asian golfer to win 8 tournaments on the PGA Tour. In the same year, he established the K.J. Choi Foundation to nurture junior golfers as a way to give back to society. He has also been running a campaign for the past 3 years to improve the golf culture in Korea. As a representative of Korean golfers on the global stage, K.J. Choi has demonstrated strong patriotism, with the national flag of the Republic of Korea engraved on his golf bag and shoes.


K.J. Choi, now in his mid-40s, says that there are times when he feels weary, but he is determined to play golf as long as his body permits him, and his ultimate goal is to complete his 'Build a Dream Nest' Project for aspiring golfers.


K.J. Choi with strong will and determination broadened his stage beyond Wando Island and conquered Japan and the U.S. A special interview with the ambitious golfer regarding his dramatic life story and golf career as well as the battles he faced on his way to the top on the PGA Tour. So, join us on The INNERview as we take you all the way to Guangzhou to meet K.J. Choi!
