On February 18, Kim Hoon Tae held his car again thanks to a hole-in-one at the 16-par3 hole on the first day of Genesis Invitational – the PGA Tour event in Los Angeles with a prize fund of 9.3 million USD.
It was the third car that Kim won from the professional arena in the past four months. All three cars belong to the luxury car line.
The Genesis Invitational prize money is awarded to sponsors. He finished his 16th hole, 168 yards long, with a single swing of his 7 iron.
In addition to the opening day of the hole-in-one, Kim had an eagle and three birdies on the Riviera, par71. Kim eagle hole 11 from the escape phase of the bunker to the green, but the ball hits the target’s mouth.
Riviera since 1983 recorded Kim as the fourth person to score two eagles in the back half of the field in a single round. Before Kim were Phil Mickelson, Sergio Garcia and Scott McCarron respectively.
However, the 35-year-old was unable to score a deep negative because of three bogeys and a double bogey. Closing the round of 69 strokes, Kim entered the T19 group with a score of -2.
In October 2020, Kim won the domestic professional title sponsored by Genesis. That victory earned him a GV80 series with a spot on the Riviera this week. And the first one, the GV70 series, thanks to the top of the Korean Tour 2020 bonus table.
“I gave my parents two heads. The third one doesn’t know about it yet. It was nice to pick up the car at the first PGA Tour,” Kim said after accepting the car.
Kim won a ticket to the CJ Cup of the PGA Tour four months ago. But Covid-19 caused the tournament to be returned to the US instead of Korea in the original show. At that time, Kim accepted to stay to consolidate his record in the domestic arena and then hold a second car.
