In the President’s Cup Golf Tournament which starts this week, Korea’s Sungjae Lim and Joohyung Kim are highly expected as the key players of the international team.

The President’s Cup, a men’s golf competition between the United States and non-European international teams, begins on the 22nd (Korea time) in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA.

Among the 12 players in the international team, there are four Korean players: Im Seong-jae, Kim Joo-hyeong, Lee Kyung-hoon, and Kim Si-woo.

According to the power ranking presented by the US PGA Tour on the Internet website, Im Seong-jae was ranked first and was evaluated to play the role of ‘ace’ of the international team, and Kim Joo-hyung was also ranked fourth.

Regarding Im Seong-jae, he said, “I am expected to play almost every day because he is the most versatile among Korean players.

Sungjae Lim also had a good record of 3 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss at the 2019 Australian Championships, the previous Presidents Cup.

Kim Joo-hyung also said, “This is my first time participating in the competition, but it’s a locomotive that moves forward at full speed.”

In particular, the PGA Tour Internet homepage published a separate article about Kim Joo-hyung, and Joo-hyung expressed Kim as the ‘Chief Energy Officer’ of the international team.

As for Kim Joo-hyung, who is 20 this year, the PGA Tour evaluated that he “set a record for being the youngest player to win 2nd place on the PGA Tour since the Second World War.”

International Team Manager Trevor Immelman (South Africa) also praised Kim Joo-hyung as “a great player full of passion”, saying, “Joo-hyung Kim is young but mature and flexible.”

Kim Joo-hyung also said, “I want to infuse energy into the team. I will take on such a role.”
