Jay Choi, called upon his short game to keep him in contention at the Totoumi Hamamatsu Open on the Japan Golf Tour. A -1 (71) has Jay in a tie for eighth after the second round. 2 birdie’s and a bogey accounted for the 71, but if one look’s a little closer at the score card you will see that Jay made 9 out of 10 up/down’s (90%!).
Instructor’s always stress the importance of the short game and Jay’s performance in the second round support’s just how making a good chip or pitch can affect your total score. Jay will be at the range working on controlling his ball flight so that his GIR percentage will be increased for the third round.
