Choi holds on to win Samsung title at Torrey Pines

Yeon Choi of South Korea lost a seven-stroke lead but birdied the final hole Sunday to win the $1 million 2009 Samsung World Championship, which marked the return of the Ladies Professional Golf Association Tour to San Diego.

Choi, in her second year on the LPGA Tour, shot a one-under-par 71 to finish at 16-under 272 at Torrey Pines South to take the $250,000 winner’s purse.

Japan’s Ai Miyazato Miyazato shot a three-under-par 69 — the lowest score for the final round — to finish second, one stroke behind.

Miyazato held a one-shot lead heading into the final hole, which she bogeyed. Choi won with a birdie.

The tournament was the first appearance by the LPGA in the region in 15 years, and the first such event at Torrey Pines Golf Club since 1983.
