In a video interview with domestic media on the 9th ( of the PGA Tour Sony Open (total prize money of $8.3 million), he said, “I changed my putter.
I think I have found confidence even with the No. 1 putter. “I practiced a lot with a regular putter during the off-season,” he revealed.
Kim Si-woo, who suffered from putting difficulties, brought out a broomstick putter at the Presidents Cup in September 2022.
He took the advice of Adam Scott (Australia) and started writing the ‘broom putter’. 지울프-토토
But this year, I decided to go back to the old ways. He also brought out a regular putter at last week’s opening match
The Sentry. He laughed, saying, “It’s been a while since I tried it, and it wasn’t bad
It was easy to keep my distance,” and “I always carry a broomstick putter with me, so I don’t know when I’ll change it again.”
Kim Si-woo won his fourth career PGA Tour victory at the Sony Open last year.
He reached the top in his first tournament after marrying Oh Ji-hyun
who won seven times on the Korean Ladies Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour.
Her wife will give birth in March. At the Sony Open, he aims to defend his personal title for the first time.
Kim Si-woo smiled and said, “It was a competition I came to on my honeymoon right after my wedding, and I was so happy to win.”
He added, “I’m glad I came to relive the memories of last year.”
Fortunately, the start is smooth. He finished The Sentry in a tie for 25th place.
Kim Si-woo said, “I was worried because my sense of the game was poor and I didn’t practice well until the end,” and reflected
“I believe that from the second day, I believed in myself and tried to play the way I wanted, which led to a good score.”
He then expressed his expectations, saying, “I think we can play well this week without any major problems as long as we have confidence and assurance.”
Kim Si-woo entered the ‘top 10’ five times, including one win last year.
He said, “It was disappointing that we were not able to achieve our goal of two wins
but I am satisfied because it seemed like the year we played the best and most stable. I hope this year continues like last year.”
