Kyung-Joo Choi, who boasts 8 wins in his career, has moved on to the Senior Tour from 2020. However, he announced that he would focus on the PGA Tour this year, and took a good start at the first tournament of the new year. He is recalling the memory of winning this tournament in 2008 after 15 years.
After the match, Choi Kyung-joo said, “Actually, I didn’t qualify for this week, but Sony gave me a special invitation, so I think he did well in his first round. When I became the champion in 2008, many fans came and a lot of things happened. I had a lot of thoughts while going through the first round today. I had a fun round while thinking about it at that time. Of course, there were a few mistakes, but I think I covered them well with putts.” I will work harder in the remaining 3 rounds to get good results. I will always deliver good results with the heart of repaying many fans.”
Seven players participated in this competition. How does it feel to be the eldest golfer in Korea? Choi Gyeong-ju said, “There were almost no players 10 years ago, but now 7 to 8 Korean players are doing well. He said these days he’s married, plays stable, and has a good life. I’m glad he seems to be practicing hard too. Now that many juniors are coming to the field where I have been alone, I wonder if many players will show up on the tour next year as well as last year’s Presidents Cup,” he said. While cheering for the young players, I will also try my best.”
