“I want the four Korean players to come together as one and climb to the top of the podium in the team event.”
Kevin Na (40), the flagship player of LIV golf, wants to make the Ironhead GC team into ‘Team Korea’ someday. It is to inform golf fans around the world about the power of K-golf by forming a team with players of Korean blood.
Kevin Na said, “I don’t know when this will happen, but I really want to make a team Korea with players who are related to Korea at least once. Just imagining it makes my heart race. No one in the world doubts the skills of Korean players. I will do my best to keep the Taegeukgi flying.”
The team event is the biggest feature that differentiates LIV Golf from other tours such as the PGA Tour and DP World Tour. There may be some awkwardness about the team event, but the level of interest from LIV players is huge. In some teams, four players gather in one place to train and eat, etc., to achieve good results in team competitions. 스포츠토토
Kevin Na: “Certainly, when players of the same nationality gather, they have no choice but to unite as one. It is the same reason why they dream of becoming Team Korea beyond Team Asia. I am thinking, ‘Maybe there will be an opportunity within 2-3 years at the earliest'” said.
LIV Golf, which is being held for the first time this year as a full season, will be held in 14 tournaments. All competitions are the same, with 48 players participating in the individual event and 12 teams in the team event. As the opening game of the 2023 season approaches, each team captain is revealing the newly selected players one after another. Are there any Korean players who are mentioned as joining LIV Golf?
An official familiar with LIV golf said, “I heard that the captains of each team who have the right to select players have been thinking all through last winter to build the best team.” We will announce new news from LIV Golf,” he explained. He added, “In LIV Golf, as I prefer players with symbolic meaning representing each country, I know that Park Sang-hyun and Kim Bio are included in the list of candidates for recruitment in Korea.”
