Beyond Choi’s Courage And Hope

Choi Kyung-ju (54) threw his head to the end lightly. He swung based on softness rather than strength. Due to younger players, driver shots had shorter distances inevitably than younger players. He had to keep the second shot long, too. When young players picked up middle iron, short iron, and wedge, Choi picked up hybrid, long iron, and middle iron. It was not easy to get close to the pin. His weapon was a well-known short game. Choi hit the trouble shot incredibly and made a good putt. The trouble shot that Choi displayed in the first round of the SK Telecom Open extension on Wednesday was superb.

Choi turned 54 years old on the day. People in their early 30s are in their prime. It is not easy to compete with young players at that age. After participating in the tour in the U.S., Choi immediately returned home and played pro-am. He played shot in high temperature on windy days for four days. That was against top professional golfers who dream of winning a major championship. “It was amazing to win, but to play overtime with top professional golfers at a major championship was incredible,” said Kim Yang-kwon, 65, chairman of the Korea Mid-Amateur Golf Association, one of the best amateur golfers.

Few would have expected Choi to win. Choi also said, “I was desperate to win, but I didn’t expect to win.” He might have thought it would be difficult to produce good results if he gets greedy. He would have expected that if he played without making mistakes while maintaining his swing, his tempo, and his setup, he would have a chance. Thus, Choi swung the club calmly, calmly, without fluctuating, and without over-ambitiousness. With that in mind, he seized the opportunity that he encountered while focusing on one shot and one shot with tremendous skill and skill even in the last crisis. “I felt courage and spirit of challenge, but I also felt know-how and secret to how to play golf in order to achieve good results,” said Octaminox Joo Hak-sa (56), an amateur golfer who played at 5-under par.

As you get older, your physical strength, strength, and distance decrease. As your eyesight deteriorates, you have difficulty reading putts lines, and finding where approach shots fall. Maintaining concentration and concentration to the end is also a challenge. If the weather is bad, even more so if you’re in a bad condition. That’s why Choi Kyung-ju was amazing.

Choi was not greedy for distance. He couldn’t hit the ball as far as a young player even though he was greedy. He focused on protecting the fairway by banking on his soft swing. He didn’t hit the second shot with his strength to overcome the short distance between driver shots. He picked up a club that suited his distance and swung smoothly. When he put the ball on the green like that, he ended up with one putt and two putt. When he failed to play on the green, he remained calm and maintained his batting skills through seasoned trouble shots. It was reminiscent of Tom Watson’s runner-up finish at the British Open in 2009 at age 60, after playing overtime.

What Choi showed to senior golfers along with hope and courage were wisdom and wisdom. Constant training, self-management against temptation, and play tailored to their circumstances were the driving forces behind them to become the oldest golfer ever to win the championship. That may not be the case in golf alone. Wouldn’t it be the same in business, study, investment and business? The answer for everyone is to give up excessive greed and go in a positive direction gradually according to their circumstances.
