Golf: Noh Seung-yul wins Zurich Classic
Duluth Minnesota 424 W. First St. 55802

Noh Seung-yul became the fourth South Korean player to win on the PGA Tour when he captured the $6.8 million Zurich Classic of New Orleans by two strokes on Sunday.

Wearing a black ribbon on his cap in memory of the more than 300 victims of the recent Korean ferry sinking, Noh displayed composure beyond his 22 years when he carded a one-under-par 71 in strong winds at the TPC Louisiana.

“Dreams come true,” Noh told reporters after collecting $1.2 million for his first tour victory.

He always held at least a share of the lead during the final round and finished at 19-under 269, while Americans Andrew Svoboda (69) and Robert Streb (70) tied for second on 17-under.
