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

I like his swing...especially at P-18

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.

I've been meaning to do a search on the origins of his full swing.

I think it is rooted in ballet.

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.
