MDF at The Barclays, but his FedEx Cup points standings were still high enough to qualify for this weeks Deutsche Bank Championship. This week is very important for KJ as the last chance for KJ to get into the top 70 ranking to play in the next FedEx Cup playoff tournament. He started out this week at rank 69, so he will need to play fairly well in order to maintain that position or go higher up in rankings to have a guarenteed spot to play in the BMW. KJ's putting and driving game have been on point, but his iron game is not performing as well as it could. With some extra work in the mornings and after the rounds, KJ will be playing his hardest to qualify for the next playoff event.
K.J. Choi is guaranteed a place on the International Team for The Presidents Cup in October of 2015, having been named as Vice-Captain by Nick Price on Wednesday.
He could guarantee himself a spot as a player should he finish inside the top 10 in points or be chosen as a Captain's Pick when the teams are selected in the fall of 2015. Choi currently ranks 19th in International points.
Either way, the 43-year-old Choi understands the importance of his participation. The Presidents Cup 2015 will be played in Choi's home country of South Korea in Songdo IBD, Incheon City. It's the first time the biennial event will be played in Asia.
"I am feeling immense obligation and burden," Choi said in his opening remarks at the Captain's announcement that took place at the Champion Tour's Big Cedar Legends of Golf presented by Bass Pro Shops, as Price and Jay Haas were named captains for next year's event.
"Until now, The Presidents Cup was held in an English-speaking world, and this is the first time that it's being held in a non-English speaking world. With The Presidents Cup being held in Korea, I am quite sure that there will be renewed ideas of what golf is."
