Kim ties for eighth at US Open…first major top-10 finish
Men’s golf hopeful Joo Hyung Kim earned his first top-10 finish in a major. In women’s golf, Yang Hee-young tried to win the LPGA’s Meyer Classic but fell short on the final day, finishing tied for third. Kim Joo-hyung takes a powerful swing and drops the ball near the hole cup for a birdie chance. He pumps his fist in the air, one shot down. Kim shot a 4-under-par 276 at the U.S. Open and finished tied for eighth. It was his first top-10 finish in a major. After turning heads in the third round with a nine-hole 29, the lowest round of the tournament, Kim shot under par for 스포츠토토 three consecutive days. The tournament was won by Clarke of the United States, who shot a 10-under-par 270. After a long period of obscurity to win her first PGA Tour title and then her first major, Clarke honored her late mother, who introduced her to the game. At the LPGA’s Meyer Classic, the South Korean, seeking her first tour victory in more than four years, shot a final-round 3-under 69 and finished tied for third. After holing a 3-meter eagle putt on the 14th hole to take a share of the lead, Yang made a double bogey on the 16th to give Maguire the lead. While she missed out on the win, she shot in the 60s all four days, raising hopes for next week’s major, the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship. “Of course I wanted to win, but you can’t force it, so I just wanted to enjoy it. I think I showed that I still have the game, and I’m really looking forward to KPMG next week.” Kim Hyo-joo, who was in contention for the win along with Yang, finished at 16-under-par and tied for fifth.
