Choi Takes Sony Open

Hawaii's Sony Open, which, in recently, has relied on gimmicks for popularity, allowed K.J. Choi to show his mettle against a talented field this year. Choi, who had a four stroke lead on Sunday, struggled through his final 18, posting a score over par.

However, Choi's tough final round was still good enough for the win, as he did lead runner up Rory Sabbatini by a healthy three strokes. So, even with a Sunday 71, Choi took home $954,000.
While Michelle Wie did not play this year (as she had in past seasons), last year's hero, Tadd Fujikawa, did not find a repeat performance. Last year, Fujikawa made the cut as a 16 year old amateur, which led to widespread support. However, since then, Fujikawa has turned professional and not found the same success. Tadd struggled with an opening 36 of 74 and 70, which left him well outside the tournament's cutline.
