Kim Joo-hyung, a 21-year-old rookie on the U.S. men’s professional golf and PGA Tour, finished second in the season’s last major tournament “The Open Championship.”
Despite his ankle injury, Kim Joo-hyung had the best performance by a South Korean player in the tournament.
Kim Joo-hyung grabbed his first eagle of the tournament on the fifth hole and clenched his fist.
Since then, Kim Joo-hyung, who has gradually reduced his number of strokes without a bogey, finished the tournament with a final 7-under 277 strokes and tied for second place.
It was the first time for a South Korean player to finish second in the major tournament “The Open,” and the previous highest ranking was tied for eighth place in 2007.
It is the third time in history after Yang Yong-eun and Lim Sung-jae that they have achieved more than second place in all four major tournaments.
Kim Joo-hyung’s runner-up this time shone even more as he overcame his injury fighting spirit.
