Golf: The 19th Hole: Most improved player in America.

Byline: Steve Palmer

KJ Choi

WHEN this musclebound Korean first arrived on the US Tour and word got round that he had come from the weightlifting scene, the likes of Justin Leonard and other snooty American players probably looked down their nose at him and thought he would not be a serious rival. They had better think again. Choi did not win in America this year (his only success came on the European Tour in the German Masters), but he was challenging regularly and notched six top-tens. KJ was second in the Mercedes Championship, fourth in the Canadian Open, sixth in the AmEx, and has the game to improve further on his world ranking of 19.
