Choi hopes to make history at CJ Invitational

Seoul, Sep 10 (IANS) Korean golfer K.J. Choi hopes to rewrite history on the Asian Tour by winning an unprecedented third straight victory at the $750,000 CJ Invitational, an event where he is the host, next month.

Seoul, Sep 10 — Korean golfer K.J. Choi hopes to rewrite history on the Asian Tour by winning an unprecedented third straight victory at the $750,000 CJ Invitational, an event where he is the host, next month.

Choi, an Asian Tour honourary member, said it would be a great honour to win the CJ Invitational Hosted by KJ Choi for the third time, adding that he would be delighted if another Asian Tour player pips him to the title.

"Winning my tournament for the third straight year would be great but I would love to see one of the younger guys pull it off this year. I'm sure it will be another great year with a great finish," said Choi, the first Asian to host a major golf tournament.

The tournament, running for its third edition, is expected to attract many of the top Asian Tour and Korean talents to the Haesley Nine Bridges Golf Club from Oct 10-13.

"I believe the CJ Invitational Hosted by KJ Choi has become one of the most prestigious tournaments on the Asian Tour over the last couple years," said Choi.

Choi plied his trade on the Asian Tour before enjoying success on the PGA Tour where he won eight titles including the 2011 The Players Championship, regarded as the world's unofficial fifth Major.

"The Asian Tour is one of the most competitive Tours and I really believe it helped prepare me well for my future on the PGA Tour. Playing on any Tour is always helpful," Choi said.

He has not won on the PGA Tour since 2011 but was delighted with his performances this season where he missed only four cuts.

"I have to say that I am pretty content with my performances this year. I have stayed fairly consistent throughout. It hasn't been a great year, it has been fairly good," said Choi.
