Albin Choi gained 91 spots in the world rankings after finishing tied for eighth at the Web.com Tour’s BMW Charity Pro-Am. It was his second consecutive Top-10 result on the developmental tour, following a rocky start to the season which included two withdrawals and five missed cuts. Choi punctuated his final round by going out in 27 – the lowest score for nine holes on the Web.com Tour this year and only the fifth time in tour history that the feat has been achieved.

Choi held the lead briefly before being informed his group was on the clock for being out of position at the 12th. That seemed to unnerve the former North Carolina State golfer, who went bogey-triple bogey over the next two holes. He settled down after that and played 2-under-par the rest of the way for a final round 64. The result helped the Team Canada Young Pro Squad member break into the Top-10 of the Canadian rankings for the first time.

Other notable results: No. 1 Graham DeLaet missed the cut at the PGA’s Byron Nelson event, while No. 3 Adam Hadwin finished tied for 58th. No. 7 Taylor Pendrith and No. 9 Eugene Wong missed the cut at the Web.com Tour’s BMW Charity Pro-Am tournament, while No. 8 Adam Svensson finished in a tie for 32nd.
