Kim Joo-hyung’s ‘Surrender’… “A sortie before the Open”

‘PGA box office card’ Kim Joo-hyung’s revenge game.

The Genesis Scottish Open (total prize money of $9 million), which will be held at The Renaissance Club (par 70, 7237 yards) in North Berwick, Scotland, for four days from the 13th (local time) is a fierce battle. It is co-hosted by the PGA Tour and the DP World Tour (formerly known as the European Tour). It is the ‘prelude’ of the Open, the last major tournament of the season to be held at the Royal Liverpool Golf Club in Wirral, England on the 20th. Among the world ranking ‘Top 10’, 8 people were named except for John Lam (Spain), who ranked 2nd, and Cameron Smith (Australia), 7th.메이저놀이터

Kim Joo-Hyung will fight for revenge at the Genesis Scottish Open.

Kim Joo-hyung made a strong impression in this competition last July. He tied for the lead until the 17th hole in the final 4th round, inflating his chances of winning his first PGA Tour victory. Unfortunately, he committed a bogey on the last 18th hole and finished the tournament in 3rd place by 2 strokes. Although he did not reach the championship, he gained confidence that he could do well on the PGA Tour, and eventually won his first victory at the Wyndham Championship in August of last year.

Kim Joo-hyung entered the ‘Top 10’ five times, including one win this season. It is 30th in prize money ranking (4,277,417 dollars). However, since the Wells Fargo Championship in May, it has been ‘cut off’ three times in the last seven tournaments. His long-term iron shot is shaking and struggling. Joohyung Kim has a strong style on difficult courses. The wind is blowing, the rough is long, and there are many bunkers on the Scottish Links course. In addition to Joo-hyung Kim, Seong-jae Lim, Gyeong-hun Lee, Seong-hyeon Kim, Byeong-hun Ahn, Bio Kim, Yeong-soo Kim, and Yo-seop Seo will pitch in Korea.

Ahead of the Open, many of the world’s top players came out. World No. 1 Scotty Scheffler (USA) and No. 2 Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) are strong candidates for the championship. World No. 6 Zander Shopley (USA) is aiming for a second consecutive victory. During the Genesis Scottish Open, the PGA Tour Barbasol Championship (total prize money of $3.8 million) will be held at Kintrace Golf Club (par 72, 7328 yards) in Nicholasville, Kentucky, USA. For Korea, Noh Seung-yeol, Bae Sang-moon, and Kang Seong-hoon will participate.
