Choi Kyung-joo said, “Every time I come to Korea, I come here with excitement, but this time, I even won the championship, so it seems to have become a more valuable way back home.”

Kyung-Joo Choi said, “I will aim to pass the cut because I am competing in Korea.” Then, “I heard that the course was set up difficult. I have no fear of the course, but I think I have to play while overcoming the jet lag, fulfilling the schedule, and controlling my condition well.” He said, “It’s not easy to compete with juniors, but I will do a good game by managing my body and time well.” .Furthermore, Choi Kyung-joo said, “Many people are going through a lot of things they have never experienced before in the situation of the new coronavirus infection (COVID-19). I hope this win will bring a little comfort and joy to many people.
