Kim Joo-hyung, who is active on the American Professional Golf (PGA) tour, was selected as the subject of an official press conference for the Masters, the first major tournament of the season.
Kim Joo-hyung will attend the Masters press conference held at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia, USA on the 4th at 11:30 pm (Korean time).
This year’s Masters tournament, which is called the ‘great battle’, will be held for four days from the 6th.
The official press conference before the tournament is usually attended by candidates for the championship, players at the center of the topic, and last year’s winner.
The same goes for the list of candidates for the official press conference for this year’s Masters.
On the first day, the 3rd, Jason Day (Australia), Jordan Spieth (USA), and Cameron Smith (Australia) entered the press conference, and on the 4th, Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland), Jon Rahm (Spain), Tiger Woods, Justin Thomas (above USA), Matt Fitzpatrick (England), Max Homar, Scotty Scheffler, and Patrick Cantlay (above USA) were interviewed and filled with outstanding players.
In particular, Kim Joo-hyung was assigned 30 minutes before Woods’ interview.
Among the subjects of the official press conference for this year’s Masters, there are three professional players who have not won a major: Kim Joo-hyung, Homa, and Cantley.
Kim Joo-hyung appeared like a comet on the PGA Tour by winning the Wyndham Championship and Shriners Children’s Open last year. 안전놀이터
He is known to have been marked as a ‘next-generation star’ on the PGA Tour, such as performing an impressive ceremony at the Presidents Cup, a match between the United States and the International.
The fact that Kim Joo-hyung was selected as the subject of an official press conference at the Augusta National, which has tradition and authority, is a part that allows us to get a glimpse of his presence on the American stage.
On the other hand, Woods has not yet announced whether he will participate in the Masters this year, but as the timetable for this press conference has been released, the possibility of participating has increased.
Woods participated in the Genesis Invitational in February of this year and tied for 45th with a 1-under par of 283 strokes.
He has not appeared in the tournament since then, but there is a high possibility that he will appear in the Masters, where he has always participated except when he is injured.
However, things such as not attending the Players Championship in March, which seemed likely to appear, and getting caught up in a court case in the process of recently breaking up with his girlfriend Erica Herman, could be variables.
Woods won the Masters five times, in 1997, 2001, 2002, 2005 and 2019, and finished 47th in last year’s event.
