All he wanted was the extra day that was rained out in the Japanese PGA Tour’s Gate Way To The Open Mizuno Open Yomiuri Classic 2010. That is what Jay Choi wanted after the 3rd round was rained out and the event was cut to 54 holes. Jay started the first round with a 75 that was a result of not getting the speed correct on his putts. Jay told his coach George Pinnell, “the green’s looked a lot faster than they were, and as a result, I left everything short. I just could not get the feel for the correct speed.” The second round was a little better with Jay’s 69. Even par was the cut line, so he just made it.
Then the rain’s came and washed out the 3rd round and the tournament was cut to 54 hole’s. In the 3rd and final round, Jay got the speed correct and finished with a strong 67 that moved him into a tie for 24th place. Jay had 6 birdies and a bogey in the final round. Jay felt that if he had the fourth round, he could have made the top ten the way he was hitting and rolling the ball.
