Field for Tiger's event taking shape

Asian PGA graduate Choi Kyung-ju has been invited to feature in the Williams World Challenge, an event hosted by Tiger Woods from December 10-14.

World number one Woods will headline the tournament along with 15 other world-class players which includes this year's Major winners Mike Weir, Ben Curtis and Shaun Micheel.

Choi, who will feature in the International Team at the Presidents Cup in South Africa next month, earned his first invite for the World Challenge based on his world ranking where he is presently ranked 17th.

Ireland's Padraig Harrington beat Woods to the title last year and will be back to defend. Other top names in the elite event include Davis Love, David Toms, Kenny Perry, Nick Price, Darren Clarke, Justin Leonard, Jay Haas, Fred Couples and Chris DiMarco.

Total prize money is US$5 million and the winner will pocket US$1.2 million. The tournament benefits the Tiger Woods Foundation.

This season, Choi has won on the Asian PGA Tour following his play-off triumph in the SK Telecom Open and also on the European Tour where he lifted the Linde German Masters title. Last year, he won twice on the US PGA Tour, becoming the first Korean winner in America.
