Gold Coast’s Robyn Choi shot a final round 70 to take medallist honours at the 2020 ALPG Qualifying Tournament recently at Windaroo Lakes Golf Club south of Brisbane.
Choi began the final round at 6-under par in a tie for the lead with first round leader, Japan’s Ayaka Sugiyama, and was rock solid all day in the humid conditions, the 21-year-old making four birdies and a lone bogey at the par 3 15th hole to card a final round 70 and a 3-round total of 210, 9-under par.
