Kim Si-woo took the lead in a special tournament on the PGA Tour.
Siwoo Kim hit 6 under par 66 in the first round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am (total prize money of $20 million) held at Pebble Beach Golf Links (par 72) in Monterey, California, USA on the 2nd (Korean time).
Kim Si-woo, who was tied for 4th place, 3 strokes behind Thomas Detrie (Belgium), who took the lead with 9 under par at the Spyglass Hill Course, has laid the foundation for his first win of the season.
This tournament, with a prize money of $3.6 million and only 80 players participating, is played without a cut. The first and second rounds are played alternately at Pebble Beach Golf Links and the Spyglass Hill Course, and the third and fourth rounds are held at Pebble Beach Golf Links.
Kim Si-woo, who has not yet entered the top 10 after competing three times this year, fell short of expectations by tying for 42nd at the Sony Open, where he was defending his title, and tying for 25th at the American Express, where he was trying to regain the championship trophy for the first time in three years.
Kim Si-woo, who was in good spirits after taking a week off, scored an eagle and six birdies with sharp shots and putting.
Kim Si-woo, who started the game on the 10th hole, had an uneasy start due to a bogey on the 12th hole (par 3), but after catching his first birdie on the 14th hole (par 5), he gained momentum by adding 4 birdies up to the 4th hole.
In the 6th hole (par 5), the ball hit with a wedge with 40 yards left was sucked into the hole, resulting in an eagle, moving up to a tie for second place.
It was unfortunate that I lost one stroke in the last 9th hole (par 4) because my second shot was pushed to the right.
Kim Si-woo, who brought out the broomstick putter again, played well on the green to the point where he ranked second among the players with an average of 1.42 putts per hole when he put the ball on the green after only one regular at-bat that day.
Kim Seong-hyun, who qualified for this tournament as the last player, shot a 2-under-par 70 at Pebble Beach Golf Links and tied for 29th place.
Kim Joo-hyung, who played in the first round at Pebble Beach Golf Links, and An Byeong-hoon, who played at Spyglass Hill Course, tied for 39th with 1 under par 71 strokes.

Patrick Cantlay (USA) hit an 8-under-par 64 at the Spyglass Hill Course, chasing leader Detri by one stroke, and Mathieu Pabon, who became the first Frenchman to reach the top of the PGA Tour tournament at the Farmers Insurance Open on the 28th of last month, won Pebble. He started winning for the second week in a row by reducing 7 strokes at Beach Golf Links.
Defending champion Justin Rose (England) finished the first round in a tie for 8th place with a 4-under par 68 at the Spyglass Hill Course.
World No. 1 Scotty Scheffler (USA), who took part in this tournament for the first time after turning professional, recorded an acceptable score of 3 under par 69 at the Spyglass Hill Course.

I had a rough first day of my professional debut. 고스톱
