Chella Choi Wins 2015 Marathon Classic

I’m a fan of a lot of the players on the LPGA. So whomever wins from week to week I have reason to cheer. But sometimes there is extra cause for me to be happy. Chella Choi winning the 2015 Marathon Classic is one of those times. She’s one of a handful of my very top favorite players, the winner of the 2014 William and Mousie Powell Award, voted on by fellow LPGA peers, as the player who best exemplifies the spirit, ideals and values of the tour. Not only am I fond of her delightful spirit, but I loved how Chella’s dad stuck with her as caddie, waiting for her first victory to retire. Well, daddy caddie can call it a day now. His daughter is an LPGA winner, defeating Ha Na Jang on the first playoff hole in sudden death to win in Sylvania, Ohio. I admit I became a bit verklempt watching it unfold. I hope this is the first of many more Chella Choi titles to come.
