Regardless of the major, this is the worst par3 record on the PGA Tour since 1983 – the time when the host organization started making professional statistics.

Hole 11, 162 yards long for the closing round, with an oasis-shaped green similar to hole 17 on the Stadium course in the TPC Sawgrass golf complex and the PGA Tour headquarters.

Korean golfer breaks match at PGA Tour

Before this hole, Kim was scoring even after two birdies and two bogeys. Then disaster struck, as he aimed his pennant near the right edge of the green, with bunkers in front and behind it. The needle lacked both force and accuracy, so the ball entered the lake. After the first shot, the Korean golfer went to the new drop zone, now 96 yards from the green. Closer to the target but the second shot still hits the lake. Same for the third time.

Kim could have made it onto the green if the left side was fairly wide. However, he still tried to stick to the flag and “bathe in the lake” in the next two attempts. On the sixth shot, Kim landed the ball but on the slope behind the green. From there, he chip held the flag and putt into the hole. At this point, real Kim scored 13 strokes for hole 11, of which eight strokes and five penalty strokes were due to a water hazard.

Hole 11 disaster of Kim.

Kim scored a birdie on the 12th hole, but continued to have problems on the 14th par3 where he hit a double bogey. Thanks to birdies on a three-hole streak from 15 to 17 and then holding par on hole 18, Kim finished the last round at +8. He closed the prize in last place with +13 points at the non-elimination event of 66 competitors for a prize fund of 10.5 million USD. Therefore, Kim still received $ 35,000.

Kim is on the PGA Tour golf team promoting Callaway Golf. The company listed $48 a box of four balls, three each. And Kim lost nearly two bars for the 11th hole at TPC Southwind, ended the match without receiving interviews from the media.

Kim has won three PGA Tour championships, the most recent of which was at the American Express earlier this year. Golfer born in 1995 has two years left to complete his military service in Korea, with the only chance of being exempted from the army if he wins a medal at Toykyo. However, he may have to “hang up the stick” due to finishing T32 at point -8 on East Kasumigaseki field on August 1.
