Chella Choi Leads Wegmans LPGA Championship
Compared to the conditions that they faced not long ago in Hawaii, the rain this week at the LPGA’s Wegmans LPGA Championship is nothing. Even though the first round was pushed back to Friday due to inclement weather, at least there weren’t parts of the course that were under several feet of water.
Chella Choi, with her father serving as her caddy, fired an opening round 67 that put her at five under par. That score was good for a one shot lead over American Morgan Pressel and Jiyai Shin of China. Choi carded five bogeys on the front nine and followed that up with a birdie and a bogey on the back. Had she been able to keep the momentum going after the first half of her round, she could have very well been several shots clear of the nearest competitor at the end of the day. But, alas, it wasn’t meant to be.
Her father has vowed to stay on the bag until she can record her elusive first win. Both father and daughter feel strongly that they achieve that feat together. “I want my first win with my father,” Choi said. She has been on the LPGA Tour for over four years and he best finish to this point has been a tie for second last year. Choi did hold the lead heading into the final round of an event earlier this year but fell back to meet the field late on Sunday and finished in a tie for fourth.
She clearly has the talent to win on the LPGA Tour, but it’s just a matter of getting that first one in the bag. After that, I have a feeling she could reel off a few more victories once she learns how to win.
