Choi Gyeong-ju (53) will participate in the Hoag Classic, the PGA Tour Champions tournament. Attention is focusing on what she will show this year on a stage where she has the experience of being the runner-up last year. Yang Yong-eun (51), who is in her second year of PGA Tour Champions, also threw out a challenge.
Choi Kyung-ju and Yang Yong-eun will compete side by side in the Hoag Classic, which will be held at Newport Beach Country Club (par 71) in Newport Beach, California, for three days from the 17th. The two, who have competed in three PGA Tour Champions events side by side, have yet to produce any significant results. Yang Yong-eun tied for 10th at the Chuve Classic last month, and Choi Kyung-joo has yet to make it to the top 10. 메이저사이트
At least, Choi Kyung-ju seems to recall pleasant memories from last year’s Hoag Classic. He was runner-up in the event last year. Yang Yong also did well by tying for 15th at the Hoag Classic. Since 1995, no Asian player has ever won the tournament. Choi Kyung-ju is aiming for two PGA Tour Champions wins, and Yang Yong-eun is aiming for his first win.
In this tournament, all the strong players of the PGA Tour, such as Choi Kyung-ju, Yang Yong-eun, Bernhard Langer (Germany), Ernie Els (South Africa), and last year’s winner Retif Goosen (South Africa) will all be on the scene. Choi Kyung-ju will tee off in the first round at the 10th hole with Robert Carlsson (Sweden) and Kevin Sutherland (USA). Yang Yong-eun, along with Tom Furness Jr. (USA) and John Senden (Australia), will also start on the 10th hole.
