Sihwan Kim and James Piot, who were relegated from LIV Golf, are looking to build momentum over the next month, culminating in a strong showing at the LIV Golf Promotions event in December as they aim to return to the league.
Kim has an imperative to return as soon as possible. However, his focus is not primarily on winning. It's obvious that Kim doesn't want to put pressure on himself. At this moment, it is necessary for him to be patient, calm and wait for his chance.
“I’ve started to play much better, I’ve tried to figure things out, and I found something on the practice round, on the last three or four holes. I tried it out yesterday, it’s a bit of trial and error, but it is much better.
I hadn’t made a cut in a while and it is always good to play four rounds and get some experience under my belt. I need some confidence, getting to the cut today and making the weekend is important. Winning is not really on my mind right now, I just want to the good things I work on at the range to pan out on the course - I’m just concentrating on that and executing my shots.
”- Kim said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com!
James Piot is another one of those who wants to return to LIV Golf as soon as possible. He had the opportunity to learn a lot, and when you are under the guidance of Phil Mickelson, you can certainly be happy to improve.
Piot emphasized that LIV Golf was fair to him from day one and that he had never received such treatment before. He is aware that he has to work hard and give his best in order to be part of this strong Tour again. “Phil was great to me last year, anything that I had a question about he was always happy to help and give me advice.
Even when I was sitting there hitting balls he was like ‘hey man have you ever thought about this?’ and stuff like that which is over and beyond what I expected out of him. Obviously LIV is world class; no one treats you better than the LIV Golf League, it was amazing how well they treat the players and how much you enjoy the tour so I would obviously love to get back there”.
