Five Koreans Teeing it up at the fun-filled Phoenix Open 

It’s that time of year again on the PGA Tour, where the fans on the infamous 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale take centre stage. 

The Waste Management Phoenix Open is always one of the most entertaining weeks of the season, in spite of what happens on the course. Beers are flowing, fans are boisterous, players are given the opportunity to have some fun, albeit on just one hole, there is still a tournament to be won afterall. Once again, there will a strong contingent of Koreans teeing it up, hoping to kickstart their season. 

Ben An, who has 3 top 13 finishes from his last 4 starts, will be hoping for more of the same this week, as the world number 47 continues to produce solid golf on the PGA and European Tour. 

Siwoo Kim, who has been struggling with a niggling injury recently, will make another attempt to ignite his 2017 season this week. After two withdrawals in previous tournaments, he is fully fit now and ready to challenge for this weeks title. 

Making up the rest of the Korean challenge this week is KJ Choi, Sung Kang and Seung Yul Noh. The trio have not produced any golf of note recently, but as we all know, it only takes one good week to change everything. 

There’s no doubt that a fun week lies ahead at TPC Scottsdale. A Korean victory would make it even better…
