Last month, Ji-Hyun Oh, who plays on the KLPGA tour, and Si-Woo Kim, the “new groom” who made a 100-year marriage, lifted the championship cup in the first competition after marriage.
In the final 4th round of the PGA Tour Sony Open held at Waialei CC (par 70) in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA on the 16th (Korean time), Kim Si-woo tied 8 birdies and 2 bogeys and hit 6 under par 64. Kim Si-woo, who hit a total of 18 under par 262 strokes on four days, rose to the top of the tournament. The winning prize is 1.422 million dollars (approximately 1.75 billion won).
On this day, Kim Si-woo took the lead in the middle of the game and increased his chances of achieving 4 wins in his career. Siwoo Kim passed the PGA Tour Qualifying School in 2012 at the age of 17, the youngest. However, he played the second part of the Web.com Tour due to a stipulation that only those over 18 years of age could be members of the PGA Tour. In 2016, he began his PGA Tour activities in earnest.
Siwoo Kim earned his first PGA Tour win last year at the 2016 Wyndham Championship. In 2017, he reached the top of the Players Championship, referred to as the ‘fifth major tournament’. Four years later, in February 2021, he won his third career victory at American Express. In the 2021-22 season, he struggled to finish in the top 10 once.
However, Kim Si-woo, who was supported by his wife in Hawaii, announced a perfect resurrection by winning his 4th career victory in this tournament. In addition. Kim Si-woo became the first Korean to win the competition in 15 years since Choi Kyung-ju in 2008.
In this tournament, Kim Si-woo hit under par all four days. He was tied for 22nd on the first day, but was ranked 16th in the second round and tied for 5th in the third round. The secret was a high-accuracy shot. Because of the tricky course setting, Waialay requires accurate shots rather than long shots. In the third round, Kim Si-woo recorded 71.43% and 83.33% of driver shot accuracy and iron shot green hit rate, respectively.
Even in the final round of the day, he reduced the number of strokes by continuing the climax of the shot. Kim Si-woo made a three-hole birdie streak until the first hole. In all three par 4 holes, the second shot was placed within 4m of the hole and a birdie putt was dropped into the hole.
Kim Si-woo, who reduced three strokes while rounding the first hole, made a birdie at the 12th hole in the second half, competing for the championship in earnest with Hayden Berkeley. When the game was played in the back group, when Buckley recorded a birdie, the flow of the game continued with Kim Si-woo chasing. 온라인카지노
Kim Si-woo’s tee shot slightly passed the green at the par 3 17th hole, which was beaten by one stroke at Berkeley. However, Kim Si-woo caught a birdie with an approach shot and became a joint leader again. On the last par 5 18th hole, Kim Si-woo’s tee shot landed in the bunker on the left side of the fairway. However, he put his second shot on the green and made a birdie with a two-putt. Kim Si-woo cut 6 strokes that day and finished the game with a final total of 18 under par 262 strokes and a single lead ahead of Berkeley by 1 stroke.
On the other hand, Berkeley’s second shot on the 18th hole went into the rough next to the green. The third shot stopped 2m from the hole. Berkeley’s birdie putt missed the hole slightly, and Kim Si-woo’s victory was confirmed.
This season’s PGA Tour “Rookie” Seong-hyeon Kim recorded a final total of 12-under-par 268, finishing the tournament tied for 12th place with Byeong-Hun Ahn. Lee Kyung-hoon tied for 28th with a final total of 10 under par and 270 strokes.
