Chang-soo Wee, 52, has qualified for the season finale with his second career runner-up finish at the PGA Tour Champions, the senior tour of the United States.
Wee fired a 7-under 64 in the final round of the PGA TOUR Champions TimberTech Championship ($2.2 million purse) at the par-71 Broken Sound Old Course in Boca Raton, Florida, USA, on Saturday.
His final three-round total of 9-under-par 204 was well short of Padraig Harrington (IRL), who shot a 16-under-par 197 to win, 온라인카지노 but he finished tied for second with Bernhard Langer (GER).
It was the second runner-up finish for Yu, who started playing at the senior level last year and began competing in earnest this year, after losing in an overtime playoff at the Invited Celebrity Classic in April.
With no top-10 finishes outside of his Invited Celebrity Classic runner-up finish, the 54th-ranked player in the points standings has dramatically improved his position to 35th and qualified for the season-ending Charles Schwab Cup Championship, where he could finish as high as 36th.
The Charles Schwab Cup Championship will be held at Phoenix Country Club in Phoenix, Arizona, USA, over the next 10 days.
The 36 players competing in the Charles Schwab Cup Championship will receive a full seeding into next year’s PGA Tour Champions, making Wie’s runner-up finish a double whammy.
Born in Seoul and immigrating to the United States at the age of 10, Wee has won nine times on the Asian Tour and Korean Professional Golf (KPGA) Tour, but has never won on the PGA Tour.
Choi, Yong-eun Yang and Chang-soo Wee are the three South Koreans on the field for the Charles Schwab Cup Championship, which was announced today.
Choi lost two strokes on the day and finished tied for 19th (3-under 210), while Yang Yong-eun tied for 30th (even-par 213).
Harrington shaved seven strokes off her final round to finish seven strokes clear of the second-place group.
It was his second win of the season and sixth overall, following his victory at the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open in June.
Langer, who was looking for his fourth win of the tournament after shooting an ‘Age Suit’ 64 the day before, had to settle for runner-up honors as he was only one shot off the pace. 바카라사이트
