NAPLES, Fla. — Na Yeon Choi of South Korea proved to be a big-money player this year on the LPGA Tour.
Choi captured her first major title this summer at the U.S. Women's Open, earning the biggest purse of the year. She won Sunday's Titleholders and a $500,000 check, the second-biggest prize on Tour.
