*will miss 11/3 event.
At the beginning of tournament, Ms. Moon and Gong provided Kimbob and sandwiches for everyone and they boosted our team spirit.
During the tournament, everyone struggled due to cold weather and tricky green so both B. Chung's and E. Choe's records are kept intact. However, team Champaign set a new
record of +19 for the margin of victory. Team Peoria badly needed the help from B. Chung, K. Kim, Y. Chong, and S. Han but they were all unavailable although I. Kim (net -3) played well shooting below his handicap. Yoon's golf swing was flawless but he struggled on short putting. Cha also played solid and won the $7 skin at the final hole but his final score could not narrow the gap.
The medalist honor went to H. Yim who shot +16 and Captain Chang was a runner-up by shooting +18. Both Yim and Choo never finished top 4 in team events but they finally made at their
3rd trial. Y. Lee finally made top 4 as well. It was very sad to see Captain Ko slipping away his winning streak in a team event. J. Choi survived another year as top 4 and we hope that he can keep the streak alive in the next team event - the 2019 Presidents Cup.
Congratulations to all top 4 players from each team who will secure the automatic entries to the 2019 Masters! The only major tournament that requires special invitation.
