“I misunderstood myself as a big player” Kim Si-woo, who won 4 times in the PGA, succeeded in recovering from the pressure and finding psychological stability

“After my second win, I was mistaken for thinking I was a big player. I felt the pressure on myself, and that held me back.”

Kim Si-woo (28) won the Sony Open, the first full-field competition of the PGA Tour held at Waialai CC (par 70, 7044 yards) in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA on the 16th, and in an interview with Korean media, he won 4 wins after his debut. I looked back on the journey to reaping.

At the age of 21, he won his first PGA Tour victory (the Wyndham Championship), and won the Players Championship, the “fifth major tournament” the following year, and was in the limelight, so it was worth giving strength to his shoulders. He felt that he had to do better. However, it took 3 years and 8 months to win 3 wins (2021 American Express), and this time, the championship was added in 2 years.

“In the meantime, I have been trying to keep playing my game. Kim Si-woo, who competed with good players at the Presidents Cup last year and learned a lot in terms of mentality, said, “I think the experience I accumulated then helped me today.” The scenes of him catching a birdie on the 12th hole (par 4) and clenching his fists, or the roaring scene after winning the game with a chip shot on the 17th hole (par 3) seemed to revisit his performance at the Presidents Cup last fall.

Kim Si-woo said, “Last year, I was shaken from the start, and I couldn’t finish at the Tour Championship in the final game of the season, so I was grateful that General Manager Trevor Immelman selected me.” At the Presidents Cup, international team captain Adam Scott (Australia) recommended using a long putter, and after that, the putt stabilized and led to the victory. Coincidentally, Choi Kyung-joo, who had 8 victories in his career, welcomed it as a “good sign” for following the victories in all the championships he won.카지노사이트

Kim Si-woo, who will participate in the American Express, which opens on the 19th, said, “I will do my best to achieve good results as this is the tournament I won two years ago. He will help him win the second season quickly, so we ask for a lot of support from the fans.”
