Choi in the lead

K.J. Choi is used to playing in the wind, so it should be no surprise he is leading the Chevron World Challenge after the first round. Choi shot a 6-under 66 and is three shots ahead of Steve Stricker and Tiger Woods. The wind started at Sherwood, for him, on the sixth hole.
“It was really windy today. You really had to think where to miss, which direction to hit, but I was used to playing in the windy conditions not only playing in Melbourne, but also living in Dallas, where there’s 20, 30-mile per hour winds every other day,” Choi said through an interpreter. “I’m used to practicing in those conditions, and throughout the years, and just playing in windy conditions in tournaments. I’ve become very comfortable with these windy conditions.”
