Kim Joo-hyung (21) became a celebrity at Augusta National Golf Club. It’s time to run again.
Kim Joo-hyung will participate in the Masters, which will be held at Augusta National Golf Club (par 72) in Georgia, USA from the 7th (안전놀이터Korean time). It is the first major of the season and his first Masters.
As much as it is a ‘great battle’, the players who are said to be in the middle of the day are all out. Among them, the one who is receiving the most attention is by far Kim “Tom Kim” Joo-hyung. On the 4th, he had a practice round with Tiger Woods, Fred Couples (above USA), and Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland), the ‘golf emperor’.
Woods is the idol of all golfers. McIlroy is leading men’s golf by serving as a leader for PGA Tour players, and Couples is also a veteran with 15 PGA Tour victories, including winning the Masters in 1992.
Kim Joo-hyung, a second-year PGA Tour player who played rounds with heavyweights, definitely drew attention. He was also invited to an official press conference and stood in front of reporters around the world.
If he wins the ‘top stage’ Masters, he can change the history of men’s golf once again. This is an opportunity to change Woods’ record of being the youngest to win the Masters. Woods reached the top in 1997 at the age of 21 years and 3 months.
Kim Joo-hyung, who has already won two victories on the PGA Tour, had a good start this year. He finished in a tie for 5th at the Sentry Tournament of Champions and then tied for 6th at the American Express.
However, from February, it slowed down somewhat. After finishing in a tie for 50th at the Phoenix Open, he has consistently passed the cut, but has not been able to get out of the middle. His best finish since February was a tie for 34th at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
Kim Joo-hyung said, “I grew up watching Woods win the Masters from a young age. He is my favorite player.” will,” he said.
