Jay Choi Responds After Difficult 3rd Round 76

Jay Choi fired back with a bogey free 68 in the final round of the Toshin Golf Tournament on the Japan JGTO version of the PGA Tour. Jay’s final round 68 (35-38) consisted of 4 birdies, no bogies and 11 one putts. Jay hit 10 green’s and was 8 for 8 in getting up and down for a 100% scrambling percentage. His total putts for the day was 24.

Unfortunately, the talented 27 year old player from Southern California had a 76 in the third round (triple bogey) to go along with this opening round 68 and second round 72. Jay ended up in 50th place for the week, but did move up to 19th on the 2011 Japan Golf Tour Organization Money List.

Jay was anxious to fly to Hokkaido, Japan to compete in this week’s ANA Open tour event at the Sapporo Golf Club Wattsu Course. Jay told his coach, George Pinnell that he favor’s this venue because the grass is similar to North American grasses. Jay finished in 2nd place in 2010 at -13 (275) so he feel’s comfortable and is looking for a good week.
