Choi Eun-woo, the first win in his life, “I didn’t know I won until the last hole… I tried not to look at the leaderboard.”

Choi Eun-woo (28) won his first championship after waiting for 8 seasons. 

Choi Eun-woo shot a 6-under 66 in the final third round of the KLPGA Tour Nexen Saint Nine Masters held at the Gaya Country Club (par 72) in Gimhae, Gyeongsangnam-do on the 23rd. Choi Eun-woo, with a final total of 9 under par and 207 strokes, won the come-from-behind victory, beating runner-up Ko Ji-woo by one stroke.

Choi Eun-woo said, “I am confused.” Choi Eun-woo, who started the final round in a tie for 4th place, 4 strokes behind the lead, terribly reduced the number of strokes with elaborate putts from the middle of the round. He said, “I tried my best to play my game rather than win. He tried not to even look at the leader board,” he looked back. “Honestly, I didn’t know until the last hole. He really had no intention of winning, but he came to the 18th green and found out, and thought that if he putt two putts, he would be powerful.” 

Choi Eun-woo made a par save on the 18th hole (par 4). Regarding the successful reversal with putt that day, he said, “I took putting lessons since last year, and I changed my putter and stroke. He thought to play at a leisurely pace this season. He rotates about three putters depending on the course,” he explained. 

The day when Choi Eun-woo won the thrilling championship was his father’s birthday, so he was even more happy. Choi Eun-woo said, “I am proud that I gave a very good gift of my first win. I think it will be the most memorable birthday for both my father and me.”
