by | Sep 27, 2021 | PGA

KJ Choi backed his 68s in the second round on Sunday with another 68 and won the Pure Insurance Championship at Pebble Beach with two strokes at 13 under. He is the first South Korean to win the PGA Tour Champions.

It is his first win on the Champions Circuit and his first win since winning the 2012 CJ Invitational on the Asian Tour, an event he is hosting in Korea. He previously won the Players Championship in 2011 in a playoff against David Toms.

Bernhard Langer and Alex Cejka also finished with 68 in the last round, but finished second with 11 under equal points. Scott Dunlap had the best final round with a 6-under 66. He finished fourth solo at 10 under.

The Pure Insurance was played on two golf courses: Pebble Beach Golf Resort and Spyglass Hill Golf Course. The tournament was attended by participants from First Tee Chapters across the country who were paired with Champions Tour players for a week.

Colin Vineberg shot 23 under after scores of 64-64-65 to finish as a low-boy junior golfer. Sydney Craven finished 26 under after running 65-61-64 over three days to finish as a girl junior low.

Congratulations to junior golfers and amateurs on their wins! 🏆 Sydney represented First Tee – Monterey County and played with Tim Petrovic! Colin represented First Tee – Greater Baltimore and played with @RoccoMediate! What an unforgettable weekend! 🎉⛳️ @PUREinsurance pic.twitter.com/MUSVDf8l9B
