South Korean golfer, Seung-Yul Noh won the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. He did it by shooting a final round of 1 under par to record a four round total of 19 under par to win by 2 strokes over second place finishers, Andrew Svoboda and Robert Streb who both came in at 17 under par.
Seung-Yul Noh had to work a little today. It wasn’t easy to get to one under par,especially when he made bogeys on holes 1, 12 and 15. His lead was never threatened by his playing partner Keegan Bradley who shot a final round 75. This is the second time this season Bradley has failed to post a good round when in contention.
Noh made birdies at 8-10-13 and 16 to hold off the guys trying to make a charge. This win gives Noh his first finish in a PGA tour event better than 10th place. He has never won on the PGA tour and this win shows that South Korean golfers can play with the best of them.
His confidence has to be lifted with this win and I am sure his fellow country men back in south Korea are thrilled he won today. While Noh never was seriously threatened in the final round, he didn’t have it easy. He played a good round to secure the win and is well deserving of the victory…….
