What will Tom Kim and Kim Joo-hyung (21) show at the WM Phoenix Open (total prize money of 20 million dollars)?

Kim Joo-hyung will participate in the US Professional Golf (PGA) Tour WM Phoenix Open held at TPC Scottsdale in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA for four days from the 10th (Korean time). He is back on the PGA Tour after a two-week break.

Prior to the tournament, he had a practice round with John Rahm (Spain), swimmer Michael Phelps, and former NFL player JJ Watt (USA), drawing attention. He was ranked 12th in the power rankings selected by the PGA Tour, and was recently evaluated as a hot player on the PGA Tour.

It is his performance that raises more expectations. As the Phoenix Open is called a “golf liberation zone,” galleries are allowed to drink and cheer loudly. In particular, the 16th hole (par 3) of the ‘Colosseum’ is a symbol of the Phoenix Open, which can accommodate 20,000 people. When a hole-in-one was made last year, all the spectators threw beer cans and cheered, so the tournament was delayed for about 10 minutes to clear the green. 메이저사이트

The players also show performances suitable for the festive atmosphere. In 2020, Tony Finau (USA) wore Bryant’s uniform to commemorate Kobe Bryant, who passed away in a helicopter accident, and showed off a shooting ceremony after a birdie.

Kim Joo-hyung draws attention with his various performances in the usual competitions. In last year’s Presidents Cup, Patrick Cantlay-Zander Shopley (USA) made a birdie putt in a four-ball match, then threw the putter and clenched his fists, roaring. In addition to this, he also hit his chest after eagle and roared or threw off his hat.

In the final round of the American Express last month, after catching a birdie on the 17th hole (par 3), he made a gesture of putting his hand to his ear to ask for more cheers to elicit cheers from the gallery.

In addition to Kim Joo-hyung, all the Big 4 Korean Brothers who played an active part in the Presidents Cup will participate. Lim Seong-jae (25), Kim Si-woo (28), and Lee Kyung-hoon (32) will participate, and many big names such as world No. 1 Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland), Ram, and Colin Morikawa (USA) will also participate.
