Kim Joo-hyung (21), who had recently achieved good results and raised expectations, suffered the bitter taste of being eliminated from the cut.
On the 14th (Korean time), Kim Joo-hyung recorded 1 over par 141 for two days at the US Professional Golf (PGA) Tour Sony Open (total prize money of $7.9 million) held at Waialay Country Club (par 70) in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA. It fell short of 2 under par.
Kim Joo-hyung, who won two wins on the PGA Tour last year and tied for 5th place (22 under par, 270 strokes) at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, the first tournament of the new year, was unexpectedly eliminated.
Among the Korean players in this tournament, the main character who posted the best score was Kim Seong-hyun.
He shot a 3-under 67 with 5 birdies and 2 bogeys on the day. He tied for 6th place with Ben Taylor (England) and Austin Ekrot (USA) with a median total of 8 under par 132 strokes.
He is three strokes behind Chris Kirk (USA), who leads alone with 11 under par and 129 strokes.
Kim Seong-hyun, who started the game with a birdie on the 10th hole (par 4), recorded a bogey on the 11th hole (par 3), but made consecutive birdies on the 17th hole (par 3) and the 18th hole (par 5).
In the second half, he traded bogey and birdie on holes 2 and 3 (each par 4), and finished happily with a birdie putt of about 2.72m on hole 9 (par 5).
After the game, Kim Seong-hyun said, “I’m not in good shape today, but I’m satisfied that I was able to finish the rest of the first round well and finish the second round well.” One thing was important.”
He said, “This week, professional Choi Gyeong-ju gave me a lot of advice while playing a 9-hole practice round, and it was very helpful.”
Meanwhile, Choi Kyung-ju, who had performed well in the first round with a 4-under-par 66 (tied for 11th place), made two birdies and five bogeys, slipping to a 1-under-par 139 (tied for 77th) in the interim, and was thwarted from advancing to the third round. 메이저사이트
