Fox Sports: Korean-American James Hahn wins first PGA title

AsAm News/Fox Sports:

You might remember James Hahn as the guy who did a Gangnam dance on the 16th hole of the Waste Management Open in Phoenix in 2013 after birdying there.

Now you can know him for being a PGA champion.

The 32-year old Korean American won his first PGA title, coming out victorious following a three-way playoff at the Northern Trust Open in Pacific Palisades, California, reports Fox Sports.

Humbling is awesome. Winning is awesome,” Hahn said. “Everyone wants me to do the dance. I don’t think they even know my name.”

They do now. James Hahn graduated in 2003 from UC Berkeley after playing his college golf there. The 33-year old has been on the professional tour for three years. He took home a $1.3 million prize. That’s quite different from what he used to do to earn some money.

You can read about that and the big event in his life coming up in about three weeks in Fox Sports.
