Doey Choi at 2019 Women & # 39; s Australian Open.
Representing her country is a childhood dream that suits Doey Choi.
But the Sydneysider will not be satisfied unless Team Australia can curtail the dominance of Korea on the 41st Queen Sirikit Cup next week.
Choi collaborates with fellow New South Welshwoman Steph Kyriacou and Melbourne's Julienne Soo at Glenelg Golf Club from the following Wednesday and the 19-year-old says she can not wait to represent her country.
"It's something that I wanted to do since childhood and when I started playing golf," Choi said Tuesday about Inside The Ropes.
"It is a great honor to have this opportunity and I will enjoy it."
Listen to Doey Choi on episode 91 of Inside The Ropes:
Forty-two players from 14 Asian countries will fight for three days in Adelaide, with the Koreans hunting for their 12th title in the last 13 years.
The exception came in 2013 when the Australian trio of Minjee Lee, Su Oh and Grace Lennon in Taiwan greeted the eighth Queen Sirikit title of their country
Choi believes that playing at home will help the local people after she and Kyriacou have spent a week learning the subtleties of Glenelg's sleek layout in the Interstate Series last year
"The competition will not be easy because there are so many top players from all over the world," Choi said.
"I think we have a small advantage in our homeland.
"I know Steph and I have played on that golf course a few times and we feel pretty confident and comfortable, so I think we should do it right."
Choi hits Glenelg in good shape and with a lot of competitive golf under her belt, with the Queen Sirikit Cup as Choi's eighth tournament in a nine-week period.
She is also scheduled to play amateur events in South Australia and then WA, making it 10 events in a grueling 11 weeks.
But Choi & # 39; s marathon trek to kickstart 2019 has already yielded some great results, the highlight last week at the Australian Ladies Classic Bonville where she finished T4.
"It was really nice, I really enjoyed having so many members and people watching it, and I really enjoyed having all the camera's there," Choi said.
"At first I was a bit nervous, but I just went outside to have fun and enjoy the whole experience, I just took it all in and loved it."
Before Choi goes to Adelaide, it is further to the capital of the country. World Nr. 108 gets a stunner again this week among the best women of the game in the ActewAGL Canberra Classic.
Queen Sirikit Cup teammate Kyriacou joins Choi as one of nine amateurs who quits at Royal Canberra, with Soo joining the couple in Adelaide after she makes the trip from her home at the University in Oklahoma.
