Choi Young-joon earned the right to participate in the Korean Tour this year by ranking ninth on the Srixon Tour’s combined points list last year.
Choi Young-jun said, “I am happy and happy to play on the Korean Tour. As I have walked a solid path since I was an amateur, I want to perform well this year as well,” expressing his determination in the debut season of the Korean Tour.
Youngjun Choi started playing golf at the age of 8. For two years he was learning golf and then he switched to baseball. Choi Young-joon, who had been active as a baseball player for three years, picked up a golf club again when he was 13 years old. After that, he focused exclusively on golf.
In 2020, he started to stand out by winning the Maekyung Solar Gobae Amateur Golf Championship. That year, he also won the championship in the Jeollabuk-do Association Jangbae. In 2021, he reached the top of Songam Bae. From 2020 to 2022 he was named to the National Standing Force.
After the 10th Srixon Tour tournament in June of last year, Choi Young-joon rose to the top of the KPGA Pro (Associate Member) privilege given to the top 10 amateur points. In less than a month after that, he lifted the championship cup in the 12th tournament of the Srixon Tour. By winning this tournament, he even acquired KPGA tour pro (regular member) status. He performed steadily until the 20th tournament of the Srixon Tour, the last tournament of the season, and secured the 2023 Korean Tour seed.
It took only 5 months from his amateur to his debut on the KPGA Korean Tour. It was really solid. Choi Young-joon said, “I think I started to adapt to the Srixon Tour environment in the second half of last year.”
Choi Young-joon is one of the best long hitters with an average drive distance of over 320 yards. Choi Young-joon said, “The biggest advantage is that the accuracy is high while hitting the long hit.”
At the same time, Choi Young-joon said, “I have matched the timing well since I started playing golf. It has helped me a lot to maintain accuracy.” I will try,” he promised. 스포츠토토
The goal of the rookie season is to win the rookie award and enter the top 10 in Genesis points. Choi Young-joon said of his strategy, “In the first half of the year, I plan to prioritize quickly adapting to the Korean Tour environment. After adapting, I plan to play aggressively according to the situation.”
Next, Choi Young-joon said, “It seems that the first goal of all new players is the rookie award. I am also more greedy because it is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I want to have the title of a player without ups and downs. We will definitely be in the top 10 in Genesis points,” he said.
