Jay Choi, appears to have righted the ship after missing the cut in his last two Japan Golf Tour event’s. Jay had 6 birdies and 2 bogey’s to score a 68 that has him tied for 26th place in the Totoumi Hamamatsu Open being played this week at the Grandee Hamanako Golf Club, Shizuoka, Japan.
Jay opened with a birdie on one and then birdied five and seven score a 33 on the front nine. Bogey’s on ten and eleven slowed him down a little before he rose to the challenge and finished his round with birdie’s on fourteen, seventeen and eighteen to finish with one under par 35 and his 68.
Jay has had s ball striking issue since returning from New Zealand and is working hard to get better control of the face of his club to get his desired ball flight. His 6 birdies and only 2 bogey’s would indicate he is getting the ball flight under control. Jay needed only 28 putts in the first round.
