Winning the Masters will increase interest in golf beyond personal glory.”

21-year-old Kim Joo-hyung said he wanted to help increase the popularity of men’s golf.

Kim Joo-hyung, who finished tied for 16th in the 87th Masters Tournament (total prize money of $18 million), which ended at Augusta National Golf Club (par 72) in Augusta, Georgia, USA on the 10th (Korean time), said in an interview after the game, “What I wanted to say was “During the World Cup, Korean soccer was good, so people liked it a lot, and in golf, when a Korean player wins the Masters, it raises the popularity of domestic men’s golf, and I thought that people would like it a lot. I wanted to do it, but it didn’t work out like I wanted to.”

Kim Joo-hyung, who made his debut on the Asian Tour, went on to the Korea Professional Golf (KPGA) Korean Tour, and advanced to the American Professional Golf (PGA) Tour.

Although he was successful at his young age, in the eyes of Kim Joo-hyung, compared to other sports stars, he said what he wanted to say as if he felt regret for the domestic men’s golf and PGA tour activities, which were less interested in by fans.

Maybe it was because the expectations for his victory were high. In the Masters, which he participated in for the first time in his life, he did not give a generous score even after achieving a decent result of a tie for 16th place.

Kim Joo-hyung looked back on his Masters debut, saying, “It can be said that I finished well, but I made a lot of mistakes, so it was regrettable.”

He continued, “When I was young, I thought I wanted to go out while watching the Masters on TV at dawn, and when I came here and played like this, my desire to win grew stronger.” I want to get better results next time I come back.”

Masters can only come out with players who meet at least one of the 19 qualification conditions. If Kim Joo-hyung, who is currently ranked 19th in the world, remains within the 50th place by the end of this year, he will return to the Masters next year. 토스카지노
