WHAT YOU CAN'T DO WITHOUT ON THE TOUR: "A toothbrush."

FAVORITE GOLF COURSE ANYWHERE: "I used to really love Augusta National. I still like it, but it's a lot tougher. I'd say Pebble Beach, Royal Melbourne down in Australia, and Muirfield in Scotland."

A REALLY GREAT HONOR: "I got a really nice one, a plaque, from (South African) President Nelson Mandela when I won the '97 U.S. Open."

WHAT DO YOU USE TO MARK YOUR BALL: "A South African two-rand coin which is a little bit smaller than a quarter."

SPORTS STUFF AT HOME: "I've started kayaking so I've got that stuff, and tennis equipment, and wakeboards."

WHAT'S IN YOUR GAME ROOM: "The kids."

AND IN YOUR CLUB ROOM: "Everything; 10 years of stuff."

FAVORITE TROPHY: "The one from the Junior World Championship I won in 1984."

FAVORITE DVD: "For the sound effects, Armageddon."

FAVORITE CD: "Creed, any of them."

FAVORITE CASINO: "I don't really gamble but when I do I go to Atlantis, in the Bahamas."

PETS: "Three dogs in London."

FIRST CAR: "A blue, beat-up Beetle, very used when I got it. I drove it to school back in 1987."

CURRENT CARS: "A Mercedes-Benz _ I'm sponsored by them so I've gotten a few good deals _ and an SL55 AMG, which is my baby, and a Range Rover."
