Reporter Kwon Hyeok-joon = Kim Si-woo (28, CJ Logistics), who is participating in an official competition for the first time after marriage, is determined to enjoy the joy of winning last year, which he did not taste.
Siwoo Kim said in an interview with the PGA Tour ahead of the opening of the PGA Tour Sony Open (total prize money: $7.9 million) on the 11th (Korean time), “There was no championship last season. This year, we are aiming for two wins.” said.
Kim Si-woo, who is recording three wins on the PGA Tour, has not been able to lift the trophy after winning the American Express in January 2021. As he is going through the season with a new mindset after his marriage, he is determined to return to the top this year.
Kim Si-woo said, “I won the championship last year in January, and I think that if the championship comes early this time at the beginning of the year, I will be able to win the second championship sooner.”
Kim Si-woo married Oh Ji-hyun 스포츠토토, who is active on the Korean Women’s Professional Golf (KLPGA) tour, in December of last year.
He said, “I was more nervous than when I participated in the competition because I didn’t want to ruin the one-time wedding.”
The bride also said that there are many comfortable parts as she is playing in the same job.
Kim Si-woo said, “When I meet the same golfers, I rather don’t talk about golf. It’s because I know which part is stressful and what I need to respect.”
Kim Seong-hyeon (25, Shinhan Financial Group), who will make his first appearance in the new year along with Kim Si-woo, also said he would face 2023 with a new mindset.
Kim Seong-hyun said, “I prepared well while resting for about a month in Korea,” and “I will work hard with the mindset of starting anew from this tournament.”
Kim Seong-hyun, who won the PGA seed right through the second part of the tour last year, said, “I try not to be too impatient.”
