🤣 what a swing.  Just goes to show you that a great finish does not necessary make a golf swing.

Oh, it isn't just his full swing - he's amazingly animated on the green as well

 

Ha ha. He has a Masters in Body English.

Wow!!! Did not know that about his putting.

He is a character.  It will be fun watching him.

Besides the fact that this dude is in the pro-am....my buddy, his brother, and his dad are going to pebble for the US open week. I am quite jealous. I visited once before during non tournament time (couldn’t afford to play though) and ate at the restaurant overlooking 18th green. Spending a whole week in the area with the tournament going on should be fun.

I think they ought to pair this dude with Bill Murray! 

I won't be watching because of him, however. I've been watching Pebble Beach since it was Bing Crosby's Clambake! It is THE early season tourney that really gets me all horny for golf!

Golf.com writeup about Hosung coming to America

Quote

Ho-sung Choi — aka, golf’s social-media sensation du jour — didn’t sleep a wink on the 13-hour flight from Seoul to Los Angeles. Not because he was anxious about making his PGA Tour debut at this week’s AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, but because he’d heard that resisting the urge to snooze would help him curb the effects of jet lag.

Turned out Choi had another jet-lag-buster going for him, too.

“When I got off the plane and was walking through immigration my heart was beating with excitement,” he said through an interpreter in a phone interview late last week. “Finally, I get to step on U.S. soil!”

Ho-sung Choi can credit an unlikely source for his first trip to America: the power of social media. This time last year he was just another pro grinding...

So what do you think Hosung Choi will do in the AT&T Pebble Beach? (maybe someone can add a poll to the thread)
- flame out (missed cut)
- make the cut, but only in the Pro-Am
- make the cut, but finish near the bottom
- Top 30,20,10.....win?

I'd put money on flame out; I have no idea how much game he has but I think the big stage and attention he will garner will not be conducive to his tournament play.

I hope he does OK. Getting to play there has to be such a thrill for him regardless of how quirky he is.

    • I'll second what @turtleback said and add only this: those stats and many others are why some people — not you, obviously — CAN and DO make actual determinations for themselves who they think is the GOAT. And the majority tends to favor Tiger… and this topic is pretty old, and has always been in favor of Tiger, since… 2006 when it started.  
    • Dear USGA Member, After more than three wonderful decades working at the USGA, today I am publicly announcing my decision to move on from the organization by the end of 2021 to begin a new journey. I first discussed my long-term intentions with the USGA Executive Committee in 2018 to encourage proper time for planning and a smooth transition. More recently, I shared my plans with the USGA’s executive team and today I am sharing this news with all of my fellow staff members. While leaving the USGA will be hard, I’m excited to tell you that I will be pursuing my dream of designing and building golf courses by partnering with Tom Fazio II. I’ve been fascinated with golf design ever since I was a junior golfer. It started with doodling golf holes, and then reading and observing all that I could about golf course architecture. It also led to a quest to study as many of the world’s best courses as possible. The last 30+ years with the USGA have afforded me so many wonderful opportunities in that regard, including meeting and working with many of the renowned designers in the game. I have also learned a great deal about grasses, course maintenance and construction from our deeply knowledgeable Green Section agronomists. Tom lives in Jupiter, Florida, and has been a friend for many years. His family is steeped in golf design – he’s the son of golf course designer Jim Fazio, nephew of designer Tom Fazio and great-nephew of designer and 1950 U.S. Open runner-up George Fazio. Tom is a very talented design-builder, who has many accomplishments. Just recently, he’s worked on the venues for the 2023 Ryder Cup and the 2022 PGA Championship. Our firm will be called Fazio & Davis Golf Design, LLC. Beyond the opportunity to pursue my lifelong passion, it is the right time for me and my family. When I became Executive Director in March 2011, I told Cece that I would devote 10 years to this leadership position, and then we would move on. She and my family have been incredibly understanding of the long hours and the many days away from home. I’m excited to share that Cece and I will move full-time to Jupiter, where we are currently building a new home. A search committee that comprises a handful of USGA Executive Committee members, supported by an external search firm, has been appointed to lead the selection of the next CEO for the Association. Steve Schloss (USGA Chief People Officer) and I are working closely with the search committee to assist in the process. The board hopes to have my successor in place by the end of May to facilitate on-boarding and knowledge sharing, especially through a USGA championship season. It has been a great honor and privilege to serve the USGA and the game, and so my departure feels bittersweet. The USGA has been such an important part of my life these last 30+ years, and I’ve been so proud to say that I work for the organization. My experiences going back to 1990 have been nothing short of amazing. So too have been the people I have gotten to know and come to call friends. There are so many to thank who have helped me along the way, and I’ll strive in the months to come to find the appropriate times and ways to express my gratitude. While I will sorely miss the USGA and its people, I am confident that the Association today is strong and healthy and poised to flourish under the leadership of the next CEO. My attention and energy for the remaining 15 months will be focused on four priorities: continuing to lead the organization through the impacts of COVID-19; advancing our commitment to create Golf House Pinehurst; driving our strategy (including, importantly, the outcomes of our Distance Insights project); as well as on-boarding and supporting my successor. I am looking forward to continuing my work on behalf of the game and this great organization and I remain steadfast in my commitment to the USGA’s mission. Thank you for your friendship and support over the years.   Mike Davis CEO, USGA
    • Kids should be taught differently than adults. Adult drills often have to compensate for years of bad habits. If you think your kid would enjoy getting some instruction, it might be best to seek a qualified instructor rather than get advice online. There are some pros here who teach children, they can probably answer best.
    • My son has a nice swing, but the only thing is in his finish he’s finishing with weight on his right side not left. What is a good drill to resolve that. I wish I could upload the video I took with my iPhone but it won’t accept it.thank you 
    • Had a very encouraging range session today. Saw lots of progress with getting my swing on plane. It's not where I want it yet but it's light years from where I started.  Some negatives I saw is that my knees are still too flexed. It's proving tougher than I thought to fix that. I'm also standing up a bit through impact.
