Kyung-Joo Choi, runner-up by 1 stroke at PGA Champions Tour Sanford International

 Choi Kyung-ju (53) took second place at the Sanford International of the PGA Champions Tour.

Kyung-Joo Choi hit 5 under par 65 with 6 birdies and 1 bogey in the final 3rd round of the tournament held at Minnehaha Country Club (par 70) in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, USA on the 18th (Korean time).

Choi Gyeong-ju, who recorded a final total of 15 under par 195, finished the tournament in second place, one stroke short of winner Steve Stricker (USA).

Choi Gyeong-ju made only 4 birdies in the first 9 holes, beating Stricker, who only lost 1 stroke, and even took the lead at one point. However, Stricker reduced 3 strokes in the second half, including a 6m eagle putt in the 12th hole (par 5), while Choi Kyung-ju only reduced 1 stroke more in the 9 holes in the second half, and the first place was reversed.

Choi Gyeong-ju continued his race for the championship by tying for the lead with Stricker with a birdie on the 16th hole (par 5), but Stricker, who played in the back group, also took the lead with a birdie on the 16th hole.토토사이트

Choi Gyeong-ju, who made a bogey on the last 18th hole (par 4) where a birdie was needed, finished the match in runner-up. Stricker also made a three-putt bogey on this hole, leaving a regret that even if Choi Kyung-ju had kept par, he could have advanced to the playoffs.

Kyung-Joo Choi entered the Champions Tour, contested by players aged 50 and older, in 2020 and recorded his first win at the Pure Insurance Championship in September 2021. In this tournament, he attempted to win his second Champions Tour career in two years, but unfortunately lost by one stroke. With this, Kyung-Joo Choi recorded his fourth runner-up finish on the Champions Tour.

Stricker has emerged as an absolute powerhouse, winning his 6th Champions Tour title (3 major wins) this season alone. Stricker, who received $300,000 (approximately 390 million won) in winning prize money and earned a cumulative prize money of $3,956,127 (approximately 5.26 billion won) this season, also set the record for the most prize money in a single season on the Champions Tour.

“Sunday games always feel like a battle when you’re trying to win,” Stricker said. “But it is very rewarding when you win,” he said. “I played the game with a bad leg, but I didn’t have any major problems hitting shots.”
