풍운아' 앤서니 김, 12년만의 복귀 첫날 6오버 - 매일경제

Anthony Kim (USA), who left the PGA Tour 12 years ago, shot a 6-over-par 76 on his first day back on LIV Golf.

Anthony Kim carded one birdie and seven bogeys for a 6-over-par 76 in the first round of the LIVGolf Jeddah ($25 million purse) at Royal Greens Golf & Country Club (Par 70) in King Abdullah Economic City, Saudi Arabia. He is tied for last place in the 54-man field.

Wearing a loose-fitting T-shirt, shorts and Nike golf shoes, the South Korean showed signs of nerves as he struggled with his game and the atmosphere of his first tournament in 12 years.

He made some silly mistakes, most notably on the fifth hole when his ball hit a hosel off the face and bounced low to the right in the deep rough, and he repeatedly failed to make the right stroke on short putts.

Playing under LIV Golf's 'shotgun' format, where all players start at the same time on each hole, Anthony Kim got off to a disappointing start with a bogey on the 18th (par-5) after being teed off with Graeme McDowall (NI) and Cameron Smith (AUS).

Kim seemed to find his groove with pars on the next four holes, but a shanked second shot on the fifth (par-4) halted his momentum.

His first birdie in 12 years came soon after. With two on 토토 the sixth (par-4), Kim carefully hit his ball downhill from about 4 meters and disappeared into the hole. He raised his hand once to acknowledge the gallery, then smiled and savored the moment of his first birdie.

But things didn't get any easier from there. Three consecutive bogeys from the seventh hole, followed by three more bogeys, left him with a 6-over-par 76 and a disappointing exit from the course.

The leaders after the first day of the third LIVGolf event of the season are World No. 3 Yon Rahm (Spain) and Adrian Małonk (Poland), who joined the LIVGolf roster this season, sharing the lead at eight under par.

Charl Schwartzel (USA), Bryson DeChambeau (USA) and Joaquin Niemann (CHI) are tied for third at seven under par, setting themselves up for an upset victory.

In the team competition, Yon Rahm's Legion 13 shot a combined 17-under par to take the lead, followed by Stinger GC in second place at 16-under par.
