South Korean Golfer Makes Winning Debut in German Masters Tour - 2003-09-21


South Korean golfer K.J. Choi made the most of his debut on the European Tour by winning the German Masters tournament in Pulheim on Sunday.

Choi, who has already won a pair of titles on the U.S. PGA Tour, carded a final round of 67 for a 26-under par total of 262. He scored a two-stroke victory over Miguel Angel Jimenez of Spain, to become the first South Korean to win on the European Tour.

Englishman Ian Poulter shot a 68 Sunday, to tie for third place another shot back with Frenchman Niclas Fasth, who had a 65. Choi collected three birdies and two bogeys to go along with a pair of eagles in the final round. He takes home a winner's check of $560,000 to go along with a five year exemption on the European Tour.
