“It doesn’t get any better than this.”

Kim Si-woo (28), who achieved a total of 4 wins on the US Professional Golf (PGA) Tour, expressed his joy.

‘New groom’ Kim Si-woo won the PGA Tour Sony Open (total prize money of 7.9 million dollars), which ended in Honolulu, Hawaii, on the 16th (Korean time) with a final total of 18 under par and 262 strokes.

Kim Si-woo, who won her 4th tour in two years after American Express in January 2021, added meaning to her first win after marrying Oh Ji-hyun (27), who won 7 wins on the Korean Women’s Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour in December last year.

Kim Si-woo, who won the first tournament of the year and the first tournament after marriage, said in an interview with a local broadcaster, “I was 3 shots behind until the 3rd round, but on the last day, I thought anything could happen, so I did my best in every shot.” It led to results,” he said.

When Hayden Berkeley (USA), who was competing for the lead, made a birdie on the 16th hole (par 4) and ran away by one stroke, the highlight of the match was that Siwoo Kim made a tie with a chip-in birdie on the 17th hole (par 3).

Kim Si-woo recalled that time, “I heard (cheering) sounds from the 16th hole. When asked how he felt about winning the first tournament of the year, he replied, “It couldn’t have been better.”

Regarding the Sony Open, which Kyung-Joo Choi won in 2008, Si-Woo Kim said, “It’s like the Players Championship in 2017, and I think I’ll follow in the tournament that Pro Choi Kyung-ju won. It’s good for me because Pro-nim Choi won many championships. I think so,” he said.

When asked if he felt pressured to win again, he said, “I got up to 2 wins quickly, but I think I was lucky.” did,” he said. 바카라

This tournament is Kim Si-woo’s first win after marriage. Regarding this, he said, “Thank you for coming to the venue with (my wife). I was sorry that I couldn’t prepare for the wedding because I was in the United States.” It’s unfortunate that I couldn’t do it, and I’m sorry.” “I came to Dallas after getting married and took a break for about a week or two without joining a club,” he said. “Last week, I came to Hawaii as a honeymoon with Jihyun. I haven’t played a lot, but it’s good that the results came out, and I hope the 2nd win comes sooner this year.”

Would it be helpful to have my wife with me at the convention? He also credited the win to his wife, saying, “It gives me a lot of strength. Seeing them walking together even in a tense situation made me laugh and relieved my tension.”

When asked when was the moment when Kim Si-woo was sure of winning the championship, he said, “I knew Berkeley had made a birdie before entering the 17th hole chip. Since I was in a position with nothing to lose, I did something aggressive and the flow came to me.” He said, “I thought that if I tightened the front and made a birdie first on the 18th hole, the opponent would feel the burden, not me, but it was right.”

He also said, “The shot went well until round 2, but the putt didn’t go well. It was a bit difficult to adjust the distance, but from round 3, the distance was right, and there were many short birdie opportunities. I found a sense of stability,” he said, evaluating this competition.

Regarding the American Express competition to be held next week, Kim Si-woo said, “This is a competition I won in 2021, and if the fans continue to support me, I will try hard.”
