It’s not every day someone is able to tee it up with a legend, but that is exactly what Sandy Choi (Seoul, Republic of Korea) did last Friday when Phil Mickelson invited her to join on the back nine of The Bridges at Rancho Santa Fe.
Choi joined the club in 2017 as she made the transition from Duke University to the professional ranks, while Mickelson is an honorary member. They’ve shared conversations before and this time around with Choi heading to work on her short game, Mickelson reached out for her to complete their group of four.
“It was an incredible experience playing with one of the best players in the world, but I couldn’t stop my hands from shaking the whole time,” Choi said laughingly. “Phil is such a nice, down to earth guy. He was willing to give me some tips and helped me realize I definitely still have a lot to learn on the course. Nonetheless, it was a day I’ll never forget.”
I did say "Looks like So Yeon is celebrating her ten year anniversary". Not her ten year graduation. It translated as ten year anniversary. My main intention was to post the Instagram picture, not her Bio.
