South Korean golfing sensation Seung-Yul Noh has qualified for the Match Play Championship which starts in just under a weeks time in Arizona, a tournament title that England’s Ian Poulter currently holds.
The 19 year old, although missing out on the cut in Dubai last week still retains his place in the worlds top 64 meaning he will join fellow South Koreans Choi and Yang in the USA on 21st February.
Asia, and specifically South Korea, have shown recently that golf is one sport that they will not be giving up on and with four Asians, Japan’s Fujita also attending, the future looks bright where playing at the highest level is concerned.
The Asian Tour executive chairman Kyi Hla Han said of the youngster Noh.
“After the season that he had with us, we are confident he will fly the Asian flag proudly at the Accenture Match Play.”
Whilst Noh is in the top 64, he will have to find an extra 14 places to be able to compete in the Masters, something which will be tough for the young Korean, but not impossible.
