‘Rookie of the year competition is also there.’
Super rookie Kim Joo-hyung and PGA Tour Rookie of the Year Kim Sung-hyun got off to a good start by hitting 5-under on the first day of the second tournament of the year. ‘Tank’ Kyung-ju Choi, who announced that he would compete with younger players on the PGA Tour at the age of over 50, also delivered an impressive round by cutting 4 strokes.
Seong-Hyun Kim took 5 birdies without a bogey in the first round of the PGA Tour Sony Open (total prize money of 7.9 million dollars) held at the Waialei Country Club (par 70) in Honolulu, Hawaii on the 13th (Korean time), and placed at the top. Seong-hyun Kim, who played all the way to the 16th hole at sunset, was tied for 4th place, one stroke behind the three joint leaders who hit 6 under par, including Jordan Spieth. 카지노사이트
Kim Seong-hyun (25), who debuted on the 2022-2023 PGA Tour after winning the Korn Ferry Tour rookie of the year last year, seized the opportunity to challenge for the first win of the season. It seems that he will have an interesting competition for the rookie of the year with Kim Joo-hyung, who has already risen to 14th in the world rankings.
The propaganda of Choi Kyung-joo, who is a veteran in battle, also stood out.
Choi Kyung-ju recorded 4-under-par 66 with 5 birdies and 1 bogey to tie for 11th place.
Choi Kyung-joo, who has won 8 career PGA wins, has been active on the Champions Tour since 2020, but he has said that he will focus on the PGA Tour with young players this year. Choi Gyeong-ju, who had won the tournament in 2008, was not eligible to participate this year, but was invited by the organizers to participate in the tournament and performed well. Although he lags far behind young players in distance, he continued his stable game with accuracy.
Kim Si-woo (28) recorded 3 under par 67 strokes with 5 birdies and 2 bogeys, Lee Gyeong-hoon recorded 1 under par 69 strokes, and Ahn Byeong-hoon recorded an even par 70 strokes. Im Seong-jae lost one stroke and finished the game with 71 strokes.
Kim “Tom Kim” Joo-hyung, who was considered the strongest candidate for the championship before the tournament, caught 3 birdies, but also committed 3 bogeys, and even committed a double bogey on the 13th hole (par 4), losing 2 strokes and finishing tied for 115th place.
