May 15: Asian Tour honorary member K.J. Choi was named the goodwill ambassador for the upcoming Asian Games which will take place from September 19 to October 4 in Incheon, Korea.
"It's a great personal honor to be named an honorary ambassador for the Asian Games at home," said the 43-year-old Choi, who finished 13th at The Players’ Championship last week.
"I hope I can continue to play well and help promote the Asian Games from now on," added Choi, who cut his professional teeth in Asia before going on to win eight times on the PGA Tour.
The 2014 Asian Games will be the third Asiad hosted by Korea. The first two editions were held in Seoul and Busan in 1986 and 2002 respectively.
