Pac-10 Q&A: UCLA Golfer Tiffany Joh

On my iPod...Margot and the Nuclear So and So’s, and Ray LaMontagne, and Maria Jose’s salsa music

What I’m reading...my Facebook messages

Love to trade places for a day with...Santa (except for Christmas eve…that’d be so stressful)

Favorite teams as a kid...the San Diego Chargers

Super power I’d most like to have...to hold enormous amounts of food in my cheeks like a hamster

If you could compete in any other sport it would be...Nathan’s hot dog eating competition

Favorite moment in a competition...Lunchtime!

Tiger Woods or Annika Sorenstam? Tiger

Most creative cheer or sign by a fan...”Go Christina! Oh, you’re not Christina Kim…never mind…”

Favorite TV show... Throwdown with Bobby Flay

Favorite TV show as a kid... Secret World of Alex Mac

What your sights are set on after college...Either play golf professionally or learn to play the banjo and join an indie band.

Describe the best hole you’ve ever played...the road hole at St. Andrews

Favorite flavor of ice cream...Peanut butter fro-yo swirled with chocolate custard and topped with crumbled reese’s peanut butter cup

Favorite school memory...my friends and I used to hang out by the jungle gym in fourth grade and pretend we were monkeys.  We’d even pretend to pick out bugs from each others’ hair and eat them.

Who’s the funniest member of your team...Steph Kono

If you could make the cover of any magazine, which one would it be? Why?...Forbes, because it’d mean I was really really rich!

 If you could cook dinner for one famous person, dead or alive, who would it be? What would you serve him/her for dinner? The person would have to already be dead since my cooking would inevitably kill him/her.  But I’d love to cook macaroni and cheese with tofu spam chunks for Gandhi.

Gatorade or Powerade? Gatorade

The sport you’re the worst at...anything that requires movement, but I am constantly the last picked in ultimate football when our team plays.

If you were stranded on an island, what are the three essentials you’d need to have? An endless supply of cheez-its, rubber bands, and cocoa puffs

Something about yourself that others would be surprised to hear...I have a moderate case of social anxiety.

Which of your teammates would you like to trade places with for a day and why? Sydnee Michaels- I could never pull off an adidas golf dress, but she could.

Who is your favorite athlete in a sport other than your own and why? KOBE KOBE KOBE! Because he’s Kobe.

What is the best advice you’ve received and who from? “Just play better, Geez.” –My swing coach

What is your biggest pet peeve and why? I have two- when you pour a bottle of ketchup and the first thing that comes out is all the juice (because it totally ruins the bun of the burger) and when the person who uses the bathroom right before you uses all the toilet paper except for a little stub (so you have to either a) call for help or b) stay stranded.)

What is your favorite class that you are taking or have taken? Theatre 20

Favorite golf club? Lob wedge- which is strange because it is the club that I lose most often.

Weirdest thing a fan has done? I once tripped on the power cord and the fan on my desk sucked up my geometry homework.

Greatest sports memory...when Boo Weekley started riding his driver down the fairway at this year’s Ryder Cup…priceless.
