The Players Champion 2011

For the third week in a row the PGA Tour victor was decided by a playoff. Sunday’s finals came down to David Toms and K.J. Choi. After watching some great golf and some great breakdowns (sorry Graeme but your swing was all over the place) The Players Championship crowned a new victor. A first time winner and most prestigious title of his career, K.J. Choi walked away a happy new trophy holder. Sinking a putt on 17 during the first hole of the sudden death playoff round he had his lead. He finished up by sinking a par shot on the 18th hole to take home the victory.

With the “Choi’s Bois” fan club and all there to cheer him on the 40 year old South Korean-born golfer was extremely deserving of this win. His 8th career win he is now ranked in the top 15 in the work and likely to have a spot on the Presidents Cup team. Not to mention he also won a purse valued at $1.7 million, one of the largest in golf tournaments. There was a lot of talk about how the “young guns” of the tournament aren’t making the play they were expected to and with the final players all in their 40’s this course was clearly a field only for the experienced players.
