Fans are in for a huge treat at this week’s SMBC Singapore Open with the appearance of Hosung Choi – the player with one of the wackiest swings in golf.
Choi has taken social media by storm with his much accentuated follow through, replete with pirouettes and urging his ball in flight.
The Korean finished 10th on the Japan Money List in 2018 and 2019. Last season he claimed the Heiwa PGM Championship for his third victory in Japan. He also won the Casio World Open in 2018.
He underlined that he is more than just a showman and an overnight sensation when he won his first Japan title at the 2013 Indonesia PGA Championship.
Since his ‘fisherman’s swing’ first garnered global attention, Choi seems to have added a few more twirls to his follow through.
Spectators can judge for themselves at the SMBC Singapore Open.
