Choi Slides to T48

Jay Choi, shot a final round 73 to finish in a tie for 48th place in the Token Homemate Cup, the season opener on the Japan Golf Tour. He opened the event with an even par 71 and backed that up with a solid 68 in the second round. The putter cooled off a little in the final two rounds as he shot 73-73 with 62 putts. Jay only required 58 putts in the opening two rounds.

The Token Homemate Cup is the 2014 opening event so, one could expect the game to have a little “rust” from the off season. One is quite sure that Choi is not happy with the mix of 14 birdies and 15 bogies in the four round event. Overall, for the week, Jay was 22nd in birdie performance and 15th for his bogey performance. In other words, he is making the necessary birdies to win or finish top ten, but the mistakes, causing bogies cancel out the birdie performance. Consistency is a must and that should improve at the Tsuruya Open being played this week In Hyogo, Japan.
