June 29: Korea’s Seungyul Noh enjoyed his best result so far this season when he closed with a one-under-par 69 to finish in tied-11th place at the Travelers Championship on Sunday.
Noh had missed a consecutive run of cuts in his previous four events on the PGA TOUR. But showed glimpses of his talent that led to him being crowned the youngest Asian Tour Order of Merit champion in 2010 by carding rounds of 64, 68, 66 and 69 to end the week with a four-day total of 13-under-par 267
The 29-year-old was six shots back of American Dustin Johnson, who won the Travelers Championship to end a long drought and extend his career-long season victory streak to 13.
June 28: Korea’s Seungyul Noh, the 2010 Asian Tour Order of Merit champion, continued his good run of form by signing for a third round four-under-par 66 to take a share of seventh place at the Travelers Championship on Saturday.
It is a welcome return to form for Noh, who missed the cuts in his last four starts on the PGA TOUR and is now trying to keep his card on a major medical exemption (national service).
The Korean made his comeback to tournament play after fulfilling his military commitments. at the Shinhan Donghae Open last September.
Noh had opened with a 64 and followed that up with rounds of 68 and 66 for a three-day total of 12-under-par 198, to lie six shots back of third round leader Brendon Todd of the United States.
The 29-year-old made history on the Asian Tour in 2010 when he became the youngest player to win the Order of Merit that year.
He is also the third youngest player to win on the Asian Tour after Thailand’s Chinnarat Phadungsil and Korea’s Kim Dae-sub when he won the Midea China Classic in 2008 at 17 years and 143 days.
