The PGA Tour Players' Championship winner Kim Si-woo said Wednesday he will donate W100 million each to the Korea Golf Association and the U.S. PGA Tour (US$1=W1,123).
That is about 10 percent of the US$1.89 million prize money for winning the championship on Sunday.
Kim progressed through the Korean national team when he was a teen, and he made the donation to the KGA in the hope of benefiting younger golfers in the same situation.
Kim is quickly acquiring a frugal, modest image. On Monday, just after his multimillion victory, he was spotted flying economy to Atlanta.
