The two players will join the ‘new bride’ in the par 3 contest, an event held one day before the opening of the Masters at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia, USA on the 5th (local time). Kim Si-woo, who competes in the Masters for 7 consecutive years, carries his caddy bag with his wife Oh Ji-hyun. In December of last year, Kim Si-woo married Oh Ji-hyun, who won a total of 7 wins on the Korean Women’s Professional Golf (KLPGA) tour. Oh Ji-hyun is retiring after her marriage and is concentrating on helping her husband. 메이저사이트
Lim Seong-jae, who got married last December, leaves the bag to her wife. I plan to carry only two wedges and one putter for my new bride. Im Seong-jae participated in the par 3 contest with his parents last year and became a ‘surprise star’. It became an issue when his father Ji-taek Lim’s tee shot instead of Seong-jae Lim in the 9th hole almost made a hole-in-one.
Kyung-hoon Lee serves as caddy for the second year in a row by his wife Joo-yeon Yoo. Lee Kyung-hoon enjoyed a par 3 contest last year holding his 8-month-old daughter. Kim Joo-hyung, who is participating in the Masters for the first time, is known to have an acquaintance as a caddy.
The par 3 contest, which started in 1960, is held on a par 3 hole-only course near the Augusta National Golf Club. Players bring their families, including wives, children and grandchildren, as caddies, and the cute caddy suits of young children are especially attractive. Another fun aspect of the par 3 contest is the ‘pinch hit chance’. A companion acting as a caddy can take the place of a shot or putt. Awards are also given according to grades. However, there is a terrible jinx, “If you win here, you will not be able to reach the top of this competition.”
