‘PGA Tour Next Generation Star’ Kim Joo-hyung starts 4th in the King of Kings match

Kim Joo-hyung (21), who is receiving a lot of attention from the American Professional Golf (PGA) tour, got off to a fresh start at the King of Kings match.

Kim Joo-hyung recorded 2 eagles, 5 birdies and 1 bogey in the first round of the PGA Tour Sentry Tournament of Champions held on the 6th (Korean time) at the Plantation Course (par 73, 7596 yards) in Kapalua, Maui Island, Hawaii, USA. He placed fourth in the under par alone.

The Sentry Tournament of Champions is a competition based on the concept of a king among kings, in which last year’s PGA Tour champion and the final round of the playoff Tour Championship compete. Kim Joo-hyung secured the right to participate by winning the Wyndham Championship in August of last year and the Shriners Children’s Open in October of last year.

In particular, he has emerged as the hottest player on the PGA Tour, signing a contract with Nike ahead of the Sentry Tournament of Champions. Representative players who signed a contract with Nike are ‘golf emperor’ Tiger Woods (USA) and current world number 1 Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland).

Kim Joo-hyung showed aggressive play by catching an eagle on the 6th hole (par 4) and 15th hole (par 5).

He finished the first round with Colin Morikawa, JJ Spun (above USA) and Yon Lam (Spain) in 4th place by 1 stroke alone, who tied for the lead with 9 under par. 토토사이트

Kim Joo-hyung said, “In the first half, the game seemed to unfold a little slowly. It was a good first round to start the new year.” laughed

Lim Seong-jae (25), who had a honeymoon in Hawaii, also scored a 7-under par and tied for 5th with Scotty Scheffler and Tom Hogi (both from the US).

Im Seong-jae said, “The course has wide fairways compared to other places, and the wind blows, so I think I can create a chance if I put my tee shot well on the fairway. Since it is a course that needs to be shortened a lot in the second half of the 9 holes, I hope the remaining three days will be as good as today.” said.

Lee Kyung-hoon (32) was tied for 17th at 5 under par. Lee Kyung-hoon emphasized, “It was the first time I did an eagle without a look. I finished it in a good mood.”
