Joo-hyung (21, CJ Logistics), a non-member of the US Professional Golf (PGA) tour in August of last year He won the Wyndham Championship, which he participated in as an individual, and became the first PGA Tour winner among those born in the 2000s. In the meantime, he won the Shriners Children’s Open in October of last year and emerged as a ‘next-generation star’.

His star quality shines in the Masters Tournament, the world’s most prestigious golf tournament and the first major tournament this season, which opens on the 6th. On the 4th, Kim Joo-hyung participated in a practice round with world-class golfers such as ‘golf emperor’ Tiger Woods (USA, photo), Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland), and Fred Couples (USA), and once again stood at the center of the topic.

Augusta National Golf Club, which hosts and supervises the Masters, is showing exceptional treatment enough to select Kim Joo-hyung, his first participant in his life, even at the official press conference of the tournament.

Kim Joo-hyung attended the official press conference of the 87th Masters Tournament held at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia, USA on the 5th and said, “I grew up watching Woods win the Masters. His favorite player is Woods, and I practiced my first Masters with him, so it was like a dream,” he said of his practice round. He added, “I learned and felt a lot while practicing with Woods and watching the approach, bunker shot, and putt스포츠토토.”

If Kim Joo-hyung wins this Masters, he will be named the youngest winner ever. The current record is 21 years and 3 months, set by Woods in 1997. Born in June 2002, Joohyung Kim is currently 20 years and 10 months old. When asked about the youngest ever winner, Kim Joo-hyung said, “Everyone wants to have a champion seat in the parking lot or a Champions Dinner hosted by the winner, but I am the same. It would be like a dream if I had the chance to win on the last day.”

According to the Masters 1st and 2nd round grouping announced on the day, Kim Joo-hyung, along with McIlroy and Sam Burns (USA), will start the 1st round at 2:48 am on the 7th, Korean time.

Woods, who is trying to regain masters supremacy in four years since 2019, is in the same group as Viktor Hovlan (Norway) and Zander Chopley (USA) and starts the first round at 11:18 pm on the 6th. Woods, who participated in the official press conference, said, “I don’t know how much more I can play in the future. “The performance is better than last year,” he said.

Woods, who has won 5 out of 15 major championship wins at the Masters, but after severely injuring his leg in a car accident in February 2021, he is having a hard time showing his skills to the extent that he has not participated in a few tournaments. He ranked 47th in the Masters last year, but since then has been sluggish due to withdrawal during the PGA Championship, boycott of the US Open, and elimination of the Open Cut.

Regarding the car accident at the time, Woods said, “It is fortunate that this leg is my leg, not a prosthetic leg.”

In particular, Augusta National is said to be unfavorable to Woods, who has poor legs, because the course has a steep slope. Woods said, “The difficult thing for me is to walk,” and “passing the cut at the Masters last year was a small victory for me.”

Meanwhile, Kim Si-woo (28, CJ Logistics) will play the first and second rounds with Phil Mickelson, the flagship of LIV golf sponsored by Saudi Arabian capital. Siwoo Kim, Mickelson, and Tom Hogi (USA) will tee off at 1:24 am on the 7th. Lim Seong-jae (25, CJ Logistics) is tied with Hideki Matsuyama (Japan), the first Asian player to win the Masters in 2021, and Cameron Smith (Australia), who won the Open last year and transferred to the LIV series, on the 6th at 11:00 p.m. He hits his first tee shot in the 54th minute. Lee Gyeong-hoon (32, CJ Logistics) is in the same group as Jeff Straka (Austria) and Harold Varner III (USA).
