Kim Joo-hyung (21) is considered a strong candidate for the championship at the Sony Open in Hawaii (total prize money of 7.9 million dollars) and plays alongside a veteran.
Kim Joo-hyung will participate in the US Professional Golf (PGA) Tour Sony Open held at Waialae Country Club (par 70) in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA on the 13th (Korean time). Kim Joo-hyung, who tied for 5th at the Sentry Tournament of Champions held last week, was pointed out as a strong candidate to win this tournament.
The PGA Tour ranked Kim Joo-hyung first in the power rankings before the tournament. In addition, many experts predicted that Kim Joo-hyung would win. One expert said, “Legends grow,” and PGA Tour analyst Rob Bolton said, “It’s exciting to expect a player new to Waialae to win.”
Mike Glascott predicted, “I don’t care about statistics or course design. Kim Joo-hyung, who went to Kapalua Golf Course for the first time last week, tied for 5th. I can’t imagine him regressing this week.”
Kim Joo-hyung plays a round with veterans Keegan Bradley (USA) and Mackenzie Hughes (Canada). Bradley, who won the Jojo Championship last year, is recording his fifth career win. Hughes won the Sanderson Farms Championship last year. 먹튀검증
