South Korea’s Kyung Joo Choi, 53, finished runner-up at the U.S. Professional Golf (PGA) Champions Tour’s Sanford International ($2 million purse).
Choi shot a 5-under 65 with six birdies and one bogey in the third round on the final day of the tournament at Minnehaha Country Club (Par 70) in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, U.S. (ET). With a final total of 15-under par 195, Choi finished the tournament in a tie for second place, one stroke behind Steve Stricker (USA) at 16-under par 194.토토사이트
Born in 1970, Choi joined the Champions Tour in 2020, where players aged 50 and over compete, and has one win and four runner-up finishes to date. The win came at the Pure Insurance Championship in September 2021, and the runner-up finish came nearly 11 months after the Dominion Energy Charity Classic in October 2022.
Choi stayed in contention for the title with a birdie on the 16th (par-5) to share the lead with Stryker, but Stryker, playing in the back group, also birdied the 16th to take a one-stroke lead. Choi, who trailed Stryker by one stroke, needed a birdie on the 18th (par-4) but bogeyed the hole to finish runner-up.
Stryker, who has 12 wins on the PGA Tour, picked up his 17th victory on the Champions Tour, including six this year. Yang, 51, who finished tied for third at last week’s Ascension Charity Classic ($2 million purse), is tied for 18th (7-under par).
