    Don't understand why Choi was getting so much abuse from media types on Golf Channel, etc. like he was some kind of sideshow. He has at least accomplished something as a professional unlike a lot of sponsor's exemptions (cough, Dru Love, cough).

    I didn't really get the backlash either, especially from the "Why not a Web.com or other upcoming player?" angle.



    His sponsors invite also generated a bit of consternation because he's taken 19 of them so far since turning pro at 17 in 2015.

    His OWGR is what it is, but just proves OWGR overvalues his results and needs some review for how it evaluates some other tours.

    I always get the sense Asian players are obviously more comfortable playing at home as are US players in the states.



    You will always be more consistent in an environment and atmosphere you are comfortable, such as the language, people, food and obviously course conditions.



    Jumbo Ozaki is an example of this. He has beaten many top international players at home but his record away is quite poor for his calibre.



    Given Ho-Sung Choi is 45 and it was his first trip to the US, people shouldn't underestimate his ability. He probably struggled with the bomb and gouge approach to US golf.

    HSC was sponsor exempt. It is up to the sponsor's discretion. I am sure all of you invite guests to your house on your own discretion.

  • They just have him there for entertainment not because he is good I mean compared to me he is good but compared to Rickey and Champ he sucks.
