1 stroke runner-up Kim Si-woo “I gained confidence in major competitions”… Third Korean ever to break $20 million in prize money

 “I can prepare for major tournaments in a good mood.”

It is a valuable runner-up. I gained momentum to grow one more inch. Kim Si-woo (28, CJ Logistics) became the third Korean to break the $20 million PGA tour prize money ($20,563,889). It was thanks to a tie for second place in the first stroke at the PGA Tour AT&T Byron Nelson (total prize money of $9.5 million) held at TPC Craig Ranch (par 71) in McKinney, Texas on the 15th (Korean time). He tied for second place with $845,500 in prize money, surpassing $20 million in career prize money. It is the third Korean feat after Choi Gyeong-ju ($32.8 million) and Lim Seong-jae ($21.59 million).

Kim Si-woo said,토스카지노 “I think I will be able to prepare for the tournament with confidence by getting good results ahead of the major tournament (PGA Championship). On the one hand, I feel regretful, but I feel good because I got good grades.”

As he said, it was a disappointing stroke. After the third round, “There are many courses where you can make a birdie, but the shots and putts are not good. In the final round, even if it doesn’t work out in the beginning, if you don’t be greedy and focus on it until the end, there will be better results,” he said confidently. It was a 15-minute distance from home, so it was a competition that gave me an advantage physically. He also said, “Being able to sleep at home is psychologically helpful. It will be better if we do well in the competition,” he expressed his anticipation.

As expected, Kim Si-woo, who entered the final round in a tie for fourth place, two strokes behind the joint leader, caught a cycling birdie from the 4th hole (par 3) to the 6th hole (par 4) and raised his momentum. He made a series of birdies on the last hole of the first half and the first hole of the second half, and did not hide his determination to pursue the lead.

He caught up with lead Jason Day by one stroke with a 1m birdie on the 16th hole (par 4), and caught up with another birdie on the 18th hole (par 5) to rise to the joint lead, so an overtime period was expected. He showed off his perfect condition with an 8-under-par no-bogey play. However, Day made a birdie on the 18th hole and confirmed the championship with 23 under par 261 strokes.

Kim Si-woo finished runner-up on the day, finishing second for the fourth time in his PGA Tour career and fourth top 10 for the season. After the Sony Open in January, he went on the hunt for the championship in four months, but Day’s shot felt hotter. Day won his 13th career victory five years after the Wells Fargo Championship in May 2018. He overcame his chronic back pain and enjoyed a double joy by announcing a brilliant comeback at the tournament where he won his first PGA Tour victory.

Kang Seong-hoon and Ahn Byeong-hoon, who won this tournament in 2019, tied for 14th place (17 under par 267 strokes). Lee Kyung-hoon, who was aiming for a third straight victory in the tournament, tied for 50th place (11 under par, 273 strokes).
