Since the competition was held on the Paris Olympic course next year, I am glad to see Kim Joo-hyung’s performance. As of the 25th, Kim Joo-hyung was ranked 19th in the world, the highest among Korean players. Since the players participating in the Paris Olympics are determined based on world rankings, Kim Joo-hyung is likely to participate.
