The Ho-sung Choi experience is getting even crazier to watch—Not that we're complaining
I didn't think it was possible, but the Ho-sung Choi experience seems to be getting even crazier to watch. Playing in this week's Singapore Open that's co-sanctioned by the Asian and Japan Golf Tours, Choi's appearance on Golf Channel had Golf Twitter plucking clips of the 45-year-old Korean golfer turned viral sensation. And they didn't disappoint.
Here's a Ho-sung sampling from his opening 69 that has him tied with Sergio Garcia among others for 22nd place. First, on a tee shot, which somehow, playing partner Matthew Fitzpatrick doesn't even look at:

This guy is a joy to watch. And good news, golf fans, he's coming to the PGA Tour soon! At least, for one event.
Choi recently accepted a sponsor exemption into the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am Feb. 7-10. While we can't wait to see him tee it up at Pebble, he might want to be a bit more careful on some of those seaside cliffs.
