Kim Si Woo finds water five times on hole to set unwanted PGA Tour score

For South Korean Kim Si Woo, Sunday was just one of those times when it went from bad to good, much worse.
On the 11th par 3 hole of the WGC-FedEx St Jude Invitational, Kim hit five straight hits into the water hazard, ultimately finishing with a par 13 of 10 over.

From his initial tee shot on the 155-yard hole at TPC Southwind in Memphis, Kim put his ball in the water to the right of the green.

Having moved to a drop zone 96 yards from the hole, he repeatedly hit the ball in the water to the right of the green, only to find land with his 11th stroke.

From there, he pulled his shot near the hole before finally scoring with a score of 13.

The 10-over was the highest score on a par three in a regular PGA Tour event – not a major tournament – since 1983.

That hole saw Kim, who has won three PGA Tour events, drop from five to fifteen.

In response to the disastrous performance, he birdied the next hole before his ball was back in the water on the 14th. He eventually doubled this down by three in particular.

Although Kim finished with three birdies and one par, he still finished last and 30 strokes behind leaders Abraham Ancer, Sam Burns and Hideki Matsuyama, who had a three-way playoff to decide the winner.

Ancer claimed his first PGA Tour victory with a birdie on the second hole of the playoffs, becoming the fourth player born in Mexico to win a title.

Last week Kim finished 32nd in the men’s golf competition at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
