In 2011, Hwang enjoyed two top-10 finishes at the Indonesian Masters and Macau Open presented by Cityneon but it wasn’t enough to retain his full playing rights for 2012 due to his limited schedule on the Asian Tour. He got his 2010 season off to a good start with a second place finish at the season opening Asian Tour International in Bangkok. The Korean also posted two other top-15 finishes at the King’s Cup in Thailand and Hero Honda Indian Open. He recorded his lone win to date when he won the 2008 GS Caltex Maekyung Open. He defeated young compatriot Noh Seung-yul in a play-off after coming back from four shots back in the final round. Hwang’s triumph ended Noh’s dream of becoming the youngest winner on Tour when he parred the play-off hole. He competes primarily on the Korean circuit and did not keep his Order of Merit ranking as he did not fulfil his minimum number of events in 2008.
