The new groom's second-year PGA challenge to Pebble Beach, the order of entry, and the performance of the tournament are irrelevant
A competition that came in almost closed. The grades are irrelevant to this order.
Kim Sung-hyun (26, Shinhan Financial Group), who is in his second year on the PGA Tour, is predicting a stir in the signature competition.
Kim Sung-hyun will compete in the PGA Tour AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am (20 million dollars in total prize money) at Pebble Beach Golf Links in California for four days from the 2nd (Korea time).
The second signature PGA Tour event. Kim will join Ahn Byung-hoon, Kim Si-woo, Im Sung-jae and Kim Joo-hyung as Korean players. They will compete for 700 points in the FedEx Cup without missing the cut.
Kim Sung-hyun, who participated in three competitions this season, said, "This is my fourth competition.
Kim Sung-hyun, who entered the signature competition for the 79th time out of a total of 80 players, told the PGA Tour before the competition, "I entered the field for the 79th time out of 80 players after difficulties. As I came in after difficulties, I want to play as hard as possible for four days and finish with good results."
She also did not hide her expectations for the event. "I played Pebble Course, and the weather was so nice. I played comfortably, watching beautiful scenery and beautiful waves around the sea side. Every hole is really beautiful and it is one of the courses that I really want to play as a golfer. On top of that, it is meaningful to be able to compete with competitive players and I want to do well," she said.
The newly married groom has a special sense of responsibility as he is in the new season as the head of the family.
"I had about a month and a half during the winter, and I had a busy time because I had a wedding preparation," Kim Sung-hyun said. "I had less time to practice than I thought, but I practiced as much as I could to make up for my shortcomings. I'm trying to do what I did from the beginning of the game and raise my senses as much as possible."
"Since I took a tour of the PGA Tour last year, I am a little more accustomed to the tour and I can easily take advantage of the tour. That's why I feel at ease. If I trust my golf, shots and putts to the fullest and do as I have been doing, I think I will get better results than the previous season," he said positively.
"Last year, I played as many competitions as possible as a rookie and wanted to experience various courses, so I played with greed. As it is uncertain whether or not to secure next year's tour card, I plan to play as many games as possible at the beginning of this year," he said.
