KPGA: 7 Year Wait Ends For 43 Year Old Inchoon 

A winning smile, after a seven year wait, says it all about the joy, relief, exhilaration, pride etc. that 43 year old Inchoon Hwang was feeling after an epic play-off battle against Sung Kang. It took four extra holes for Hwang to pick up his first win since 2010.

Hwang graciously accepted the tournament trophy from a fellow forty something year old, KJ Choi…

Sung Kang’s impressive final round 66 looked like it may have been enough, with the winds strengthening for the final few groups. Kang, who had his father on the bag, waited patiently in the clubhouse and a three man playoff was confirmed, when Minchel Choi holed a lengthy par putt, while Hwang gave up his one shot lead with a closing bogey.

The emotion on Hwang’s face was clear to see.  This will banish the horrors of him being 4up with 5 holes left to play at last years Descente Matchplay final. He lost all 5 holes, which would have been hard to take for any player, let alone a then 42 year old without a victory in six years…

Inchoon Hwang’s win is a prime example of why golf is such a great game for all ages! Next up is the final KPGA Tour event of the year, which will be focused on the race for that illustrious European Tour card.
