    YJS had his big moment there. Why not HSC?

    Ho Sung Choi is currently leading the Fujisankei Classic after 2 rounds!

    Shot a 62 in round 2.

    Well, lets get this out the way.....A sponsor has up to eight sponsor exemptions and can do with them as they please, within the rules. Sponsors put up the money for the tournament so they are not taking spots away from the low level Touring Pros. They are simply adding value to their event...….Carry On!

    Not bad, Ryo Ishikawa is also in this event. Crazy to see how low hes dropped after being basically a prodigy like Tiger.

    Ryo's won twice this year in Japan, leads the Japanese Tour Order of Merit and is now ranked #120 in the world.

    Sadly, Hosung has not had a good year. Only one top 10 finish anywhere and he's dropped to #316 in the world. Hopefully, he can get a great result here.

    Good to know. Maybe a sponsors invite would be better spent on him. Get him back onto the PGA tour

    Does anybody actually realize this thread was started in April 2019 about a sponsor exemption for a player in an event that played in July 2019?

    Ho Sung Choi still tied for the lead at -13 after the 3rd round.

    Ho-Sung Choi is having a backache problem. "I can only swing with 80% of my power so, I am left behind even more, but I will try to hang on."

    Yes, I do understand that it started in April 2019....Felt it was a good time to explain the sponsor exemption again before it arises on this board again.....

    You know as well as I do that the next time somebody well known and undeserving in some posters minds here gets a sponsors exemption they will be here and whine about it without fail with the same tired arguments that have been disproved in the past. Then after that the same thing will happen again and again. Likely by the same trolls.

    Yeah, I know but my quest to educate must go on. One day every man woman and child will understand that………...Oh, never mind. LOL!

    I love watching his swing in slow mo. His down swing and impact position is REALLY great. Everything else is wild.

    Great thread title. So descriptive.

    Not.

    I'm working on my clickbait skills.

    Thank you for your attention.

    Hosung finishes tied for second, his best result by far of 2019.

    I am thinking John Daly, he didn't and might still not have any status. Lived off sponsor exemption for a few years.

    I suspected it would be him. He's in the field at the Greenbrier this week.
