Martin Kaymer and Si Woo Kim do not have common things much, but at the Erin Hills, Kim is trying and hoping to change this.
In the year 2014 at Pinehurst, Kaymer won the U.S. Open championship at No. 2 and it happened just weeks after he claimed The Players Championship same year. Now, Kim the golfer from Korea is hoping to follow the footsteps of Kaymer. In the second round, Kim shot a 2-under 70 and at 5 under and with this he sits just two shots behind the lead of clubhouse of Paul Casey.
He said, “The good weather allowed me to play with little comfort here, not much wind was there. However, this morning, I am trying to get aggressive, but the presence of wind is making it hard to happen”.
All through the year, Kim has been nagged by problematic back, and just because of that he withdrew from the event AT&T Byron Nelson.
He did this just after one week of winning the flagship event on the PGA Tour. Not only this, but had has withdrew his name from the Memorial as well two weeks ago, after his ankle got injured in a bunker in the third round, however, he showed no injury sign on a sprawling layout.
He said, “Yes, I got back hurt and I am not in a position of playing, but I am getting better and feeling comfortable in the last few days. I am getting the treatment for my back and it is getting better now”.
He said it is the matter of chance that I got hurt and injured, but I like the kind of support I get from the players all over the world and also from my fans. It is really nice to see this.
