Cape Town - Japan Golf Tour swinging sensation Ho-Sung Choi is set to make his PGA Tour debut at Pebble Beach.

The South Korean has made a name for himself with his rather unorthodox technique which has been dubbed the 'fishermans swing'.

It does seems to work though, as Choi has three professional victories to his name.

That swing of the world No 200 has caught the eye of Pebble Beach Pro-Am tournament director Steve John, who sent Choi an invite for the event.

"I never imagined this day would come," 45-year-old Choi told Korean reporters.

"I took up golf at the age of 25, after a hard life. I'm fully aware that none of this would be possible without the love and support of my fans. I will, of course, do my best, wherever I go."
