The reigning Asian number one will spearhead a strong line-up of stars from the region's elite circuit at the Haesley Nine Bridges Golf Club from October 20-23. The US$750,000 tournament is jointly sanctioned by the Asian Tour and Korean Golf Tour.
Apart from the supremely talented 21-year-old, who became the youngest ever Asian number one following his success in the Order of Merit race last season, many of Asia's champions will also head to the Land of the Morning Calm.
Chinese Taipei's Chan Yih-shin, Thailand's Chawalit Plaphol and Kiradech Aphibarnrat and Indian duo Himmat Rai and Anirban Lahiri, all winners this season, have also committed to the newest Asian Tour tournament.
Other leading lights who will feature at the magnificent Haesley Nine Bridges include former Asian Tour number ones Jyoti Randhawa of India and Thai star Thaworn Wiratchant, who have an accumulated 20 Tour victories between them.
Noh will be eager to stamp his mark in front of his home fans. His two victories on the Asian Tour were recorded in China and Malaysia previously and nothing would be sweeter than a home victory, especially at a tournament hosted by his idol Choi.
"As this tournament is the inaugural event, I would love to be the first winner," declared Noh.
"K.J. was the first professional from Korea to really make his mark. He means so much to Korean junior golfers and of course, he means so much to me and my career."
Noh added that his new swing, rebuilt under the guidance of top American swing guru Butch Harmon, has taken time to set in. "I really had a hard time to adjust to the new swing. It's not perfect yet but it is much better. For any miss shots, it's one direction now, which makes my game easier to manage."
Last season, Noh rose to the top of the Asian pinnacle with his success at the Maybank Malaysian Open where he pipped Choi with an outrageous birdie at the 72nd hole. With four other top-10s including a runner-up finish at the Iskandar Johor Open in Malaysia, the slender-built Korean became only the second man from his country after Kang Wook-soon to lift the prestigious Asian Tour Order of Merit crown.
His prodigious talent has been hailed by the likes of Greg Norman, Padraig Harrington and Rory McIlroy, who believe the young Korean can become one of the game's greats.
The CJ Invitational is the first tournament to be hosted by an Asian player. Choi, an Asian Tour graduate and now an honorary member, joins the likes of Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Tiger Woods as players with their own tournaments.
The CJ Invitational hosted by K.J. Choi will feature 55 players each from the Asian Tour and Korean Golf Tour plus 10 sponsor's invitations, making it a 120-man field.
CJ Group, Korea's food-to-entertainment conglomerate, has a three-year agreement to title sponsor the tournament which will be beamed live on the Asian Tour's global television platform which reaches over 200 countries and 850 million homes. It will also be broadcast on KBS and J-Golf channel.
The K.J. Choi Foundation and CJ Donors Camp will conduct various initiatives to support the local communities as Choi is a keen supporter of worthy charity programmes both in Korea and around the world.
The Haesley Nine Bridges Golf Club, a par-72, 7,229-yard championship course, is rated as one of the finest in Korea. Its ambition is to become the "Best Private Members Club in the World."
