K.J. Choi is glad for the way David Toms bounced back from losing their final tournament at The Players Championship to winning at Colonial a week shortly.
Choi said on Tuesday after a practice round at the Byron Nelson Championship, “I first want to congratulate David for his performance last week after what he went through. I’m not surprised at all that David pulled it off.”
Choi happened to be the Player’s champion when Toms neglected a short parity putt on the additional hole at TPC Sawgrass less than two weeks past. Choi did not play at Alley of Hogan previous week, where Toms opened with successive rounds of 62s. Toms blew a seven stroke ahead in the third round, although returned for his 13th career win.
Tom is getting a designed two week break behind playing four consecutive tournaments and is not playing the Nelson.
Choi said, “It was that one shot, that one putt that David missed. I don’t think he won last week by chance. I mean it was definitely due.”
Choi, who presently lives in the Dallas location, came back Monday from South Korea following the South Korean, 41 years old pronounced procedure there for the K.J. Choi Invitational tournament this coming October.
The competition is rather he has desired to perform since first being invited by Jack Nicklaus to play at Memorial in 1999. He keeps in mind how amazed he was with how Memorial was put up and as well how local citizens and volunteers were part of the generous occasion.
He said, “Ever since then I thought to myself that if I ever had the opportunity to have a tournament on my own, this is what I want to emulate. And I want to give back to the community by holding the tournament. I just want it to be a special event for the people.”
