Yu Ra gets entrapped; Woo-jin is torn

Local Korean American amateur golfer Peter Jung will make his PGA debut next month at the SONY Open. Maryknoll School junior Jung is 16 and has been golfing since age 8 when his father Sung Yup Jung introduced Peter to the game. Jung clinched the Nov. 19 amateur qualifying event at Waialae Country Club, shooting a 72 with two bogies on the front nine and birdies on both par 5s on the back nine. Michelle Wie was 14 when she played in the SONY Open as her PGA debut in 2004 entering the tournament with a sponsor exemption. Jung will be the first local male Korean American amateur to play in the SONY Open. Jung, as Koreans would say, is “fighting!”
