Kim Joo-hyung, who is participating in the Masters Tournament for the first time, realized his elevated status in the PGA Tour.

Golf Digest, an American golf media outlet, reported that “Tiger Woods conducted a nine-hole practice round with Rory McIlroy, Kim Joo-hyung, and Fred Couples from the 10th hole.”
Woods has 15 majors and McIlroy has 4 majors. Couples was the winner of the 1992 Masters. Kim Joo-hyung has not won a major tournament, but has won two on the PGA Tour. Their practice round together is meaningful in that the new and old generations of golf have gathered in one place.
In addition, Woods, McIlroy, and Kim Joo-hyung all have one thing in common: they are Nike-sponsored players. On this day, Kim Joo-hyung practiced and talked with Woods and McIlroy from the 10th hole to the 18th hole.
The four of them lined up side by side on the par 3, 16th hole and showed off the ‘Water Swallow Shot’ by bouncing the ball on the water.
After the practice round, Kim Joo-hyung said, “This was my first round with Woods.”
