Jay Choi made the cut, on the number, with his 77-66 (-1). He had an early tee time today for his third round and continued his “hot” play by posting another 66 to move into a tie for 8th (player’s still on the course) going into the final round. Today, Jay repeated his birdie/bogey ratio with 7 birdie’s and 1 bogey for his 6 under 66. Jay made a strong move by making birdies on 17 and 18 to shoot his second consecutive 32 on the back side at Shishido Hills GC.
Choi’s “camp” is pleased with his effort’s in regaining the form that has made him a popular player over the past 3 year’s on the Japan Golf Tour. Jay’s coach, George Pinnell, said, “Jay has worked out a couple of issue’s with his golf game and now he has regained the “Choi confidence” that should carry him on, throughout the season.”
