Golden on the greens


Anthony Kim (third) / Choi Kyung-ju (tied for fourth) / Yang Yong-eun (tied for eighth)

The Masters showed that Korean golfers are more than capable of winning a major tournament. Choi Kyung-ju and Yang Yong-eun both finished in the top 10 this year, a first for Korean men at a major.

And Anthony Kim, an American of Korean heritage, finished strong for a third-place finish, his personal best in Augusta.

Choi, who competed with the very best in the third spot, ended up finishing tied for fourth with Tiger Woods. The top-four finish is even more impressive considering that he struggled with a nagging back injury last season.

Yang Yong-eun, who became the first male Asian golfer to win a major at the PGA Championship last year, finished tied for eighth.
