On Other Tours: Esther Choe Earns Second-Consecutive Victory, Wins Riviera Nayarit Classic

Esther Choe fired a 4-under-par 69 in the final round of the Riviera Nayarit Classic to give her an impressive six-stroke victory over Jean Chua and Ginger Howard at El Tigre Golf & Country Club in Nuevo Vallarta, Nayarit. Choe was steady throughout the three days of competition, sharing or holding the lead in each round.

But Choe admitted adrenaline and nerves got to her teeing off the first tee of the final round, one of only three holes she bogeyed on Sunday.

"I wasn't shaking nervous but I was just anticipating and anxious," said Choe. "So out of the gate I was a little frazzled. But after that I was fine."

 She finished the front nine with two birdies on Nos. 5 and 8 and started the back nine with a birdie on the par-5 No. 10. After carding her second bogey of the day on the 11th she rattled off three-consecutive birdies, sinking her longest putts of the week to do so.

"I made some really good, long putts on 12 and 13," said Choe. "Those were the longest putts I made all week. Twelve was about 40 feet and followed it up with a 30-footer on the 13th."
