“I hope this year will be better than last year.”
Kim Joo-hyung (21) said this in an interview with the PGA Tour on the 4th, two days before the opening of the Sentry Tournament of Champions. Kim Joo-hyung won the PGA Tour Wyndham Championship in August last year. Two months later, he won the Shriners Children’s Open, winning two victories at an earlier age than the ‘golf emperor’ Tiger Woods (48, USA), drawing attention. Trevor Immelman (44, South Africa), who headed the international team at the Presidents Cup last year, praised Kim Joo-hyung, saying, “He will become a world-class superstar.”스포츠토토
Looking back on 2022, Kim Joo-hyung said, “It was a crazy year. Everything happened quickly and when I think about it, it feels amazing,” he said. “I won two wins last year, but I think I need to work harder.” Kim Joo-hyung, who is entering his second season on the PGA Tour, said, “It seems that playing on the PGA Tour has become more comfortable. “I always try to maintain the same mindset,” he said. “My goal is to improve my performance every day by becoming stronger mentally and physically.” He also expressed pride in playing on the PGA Tour. Kim Joo-hyung said, “My goal was to play on the PGA Tour where the best players participate. Great players have left a legacy on the PGA Tour, and I want to play on the PGA Tour for a long time.”
In a video interview on the 4th, Lee Gyeong-hoon (32), who will participate in the Sentry Tournament of Champions, which opens on the 6th, along with Kim Joo-hyung, said, “The goal I want to achieve the most this year is to win a major tournament.” Lee Kyung-hoon, who has no major championship trophy, reached the top of the PGA Tour AT&T Byron Nelson last year and achieved two consecutive victories. Lee Kyung-hoon said, “I want to win again at AT&T Byron Nelson this year and participate in the Tour Championship, the final match of the playoffs.”
The Sentry Tournament of Champions, the first tournament of the New Year’s PGA Tour, is called “The King of Kings” because only the winners of last year’s PGA Tour tournament or players who participated in the Tour Championship in the final round of the playoffs can participate. This year, 39 players participate and cover the rankings without missing the cut.
