K.J. Choi holed an 11-foot birdie putt worth $270,000 on the 18th hole Sunday to win the 26th Skins Game with $415,000.
Stephen Ames missed a nine-footer that would have tied the hole and forced the foursome including Phil Mickelson and Rocco Mediate into a playoff.
Instead, Choi's putt gave him $340,000 for Sunday's nine holes and made him the fifth international player to win the title.
"I'm very proud to have won the Skins Game, the first time ever for a Korean player," said Choi, who said he watched the Skins Game and the Masters growing up in South Korea. "I'm very, very happy today."
