    Korea hopes to host the Presidents Cup in 2032, after the country successfully hosted the biannual golf tournament in 2015.
    Poongsan Group chairman Ryu Jin, who chaired the organizing committee of the tournament in Incheon in 2015, recently said he is "closely talking" with the PGA Tour to host the event again here.
    Several companies including Hyundai -- which has sponsored the annual General Invitational since 2017 -- have apparently shown interest in sponsoring the event.
    Specific details have not been decided yet, but Jeju Island and Gyeonggi Province near Seoul are among the likely venues for the tournament, in which teams representing the U.S. and the rest of world except Europe compete.

    Meanwhile, this year's tournament tees off at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina on Thursday.
    Four Korean golfers -- Im Sung-jae, Kim Joo-hyung, Kim Si-woo and Lee Kyoung-hoon -- are among the dozen golfers on the international team that will take on the U.S.
    In particular, Kim Joo-hyung, also known as Tom Kim, is drawing much attention as he is the youngest of the 24 golfers in the tournament.
    Born in Seoul and raised in Australia, the Philippines and Thailand, he reportedly mingles well with other players.
