Few Positives for the Kims at the WGC Matchplay 

No weekend updates needed at this event, as all four Koreans fell at the first hurdle, at the WGC Dell Matchplay in Texas. 

To be fair, there were still a couple of positives to take away from what proved to be a very challenging format and week for An and Wang, who both went 0-3 in their group matches. 

For Siwoo Kim, after opening up with a heavy defeat to Phil Mickelson, he bounced back strongly to tie with JB Holmes, and beat Daniel Berger, in his remaining two matches. A 1-1-1 record is certainly one in which many positives can from it. 

The top performer was unsurprisingly K.T. Kim, who is quite the intimidating tough competitor on the course. He took down Masters champion Danny Willett with relative ease and followed this up with another win over Russell Knox.

In Kim’s final group match against Bill Haas, he just had to avoid defeat to advance. Unfortunately, this was not the case, so a head to head playoff was required to decide who would qualify. Haas eventually prevailed at the sixth extra hole, just further proof that K.T. is a tough competitor.
