‘Expecting father’ Kim Si-woo tries to win 2nd consecutive Sony Open, “I came to Hawaii on my honeymoon and won “Land of blessings”
The second tournament of the PGA season opens today and Byung-Hoon An, Gyeong-Hoon Lee, and Seong-Hyun Kim will also participate.
For Kim Si-woo (29, photo), who plays on the PGA Tour, Hawaii, USA, is a ‘land of blessings.’ Kim Si-woo, who got married in December 2022, won his fourth PGA Tour title in Hawaii, where he went on his honeymoon in January last year. The Sony Open was that stage. Oh Ji-hyun (28), who won seven times on the Korean Ladies Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour, is his wife.
Kim Si-woo, who will become a father in two months, will defend his title at the Sony Open, which is full of good memories. Siwoo Kim will participate in the Sony Open (total prize money of $8.3 million, approximately 10.9 billion won), the second tournament of the PGA Tour season, held at Waialae Country Club (par 70) in Honolulu, Hawaii for four days starting on the 12th. His pregnant wife is also accompanying him to this competition. Kim Si-woo said in a video interview with Korean media, “After getting married, he found peace of mind. “His wife is due to give birth in early March, so this Sony Open will likely be the last tournament they attend together.” 안전 토토사이트
Siwoo Kim tied for 25th with 20 under par 272 at The Sentry, the PGA Tour season opener held in Hawaii last week. He had a stable game, making only 3 bogeys during the 4 rounds. The PGA Tour placed ‘defending champion’ Kim Si-woo in 8th place in the power rankings predicting the Sony Open winner.
Kim Si-woo, who used a broomstick putter until last year, brought a regular putter to last week’s competition. He said, “I found confidence even with a regular putter. During the off-season he practiced a lot with his regular putter. It’s not that I don’t use broomsticks. “He always takes it with him to competitions because it makes it much easier to keep the distance.” Regarding his goal for this season, Kim Si-woo said, “I won last year and advanced to the Tour Championship, the final round of the PGA Tour playoffs. “I want to finish the season at the Tour Championship with at least one win this year,” he said.
Four Korean players, including Byung-Hoon An, Kyung-Hoon Lee, and Seong-Hyun Kim, will participate in the Sony Open. Byung-Hoon An, who came in 4th place at The Sentry last week, is in good spirits. The PGA Tour ranked Byeong-Hoon An at 6th place in this tournament’s power rankings. Byung-Hoon An has participated in 181 PGA Tour tournaments, and he has yet to win. Chris Kirk (USA), winner of the season opener, will attempt to win the title for two consecutive weeks. 슬롯사이트
