In a week that has seen amateur Brittany Marchand of Orangeville, Ont., win a Cactus Tour event in Arizona and 17-year-old Brooke Henderson of Smiths Falls, Ont., win on the Suncoast Ladies’ Tour in Florida, Toronto’s Albin Choi keep the Canadian streak going in Mississippi on Saturday.
In an event shortened to 54 holes due to rain, Choi won the Cardinal Classic at Diamondhead on the Swingthought .com Tour on the second playoff hole against American James Erkenbech after both players finished at 12 under.
Choi needed a birdie to finish the final round at even par 72 and force the playoff as Erkenbeck had a final round 69.
Choi’s second consecutive Swingthought victory not only earned him $20,000, but also an exemption into a Web .com Tour event.
Christopher Ross finished three shots back at nine under, which left him tied for sixth.
