Kim sets net to beat in RGA February

KI Soo Kim shot a 2-under setting the net to beat in the Refaluwasch Golf Association’s February Ace of the Month tournament during the qualifier at the Kingfisher Golf Links on Feb. 4.

RGA will hold its ace round on Sunday at the Kingfisher. The check in time is 12 noon and the tee off, 13:30 p.m.

Kim who made a comeback after a brief absence in RGA monthly tours, completed a stronger front nine to take command of the tour despite Manny Mangarero’s birdie in Hole No. 6.

RGA Vice president Tars Olopai improved his feat form 43 in the front to 40 in the back nine but Kim holed two birdies in the final half to keep the lead shooting a 70.

Olopai finished with a 77 to take the second place while Tony Satur settled for the third with an 80.

The other RGA golfers who made it in the qualifier were Tony Rogolifoi who shot an 81; Ulysses Kapileo, 82; Nick Guerrero and Mangarero tied at 83; Tony Benavente and Paul Kaipat tied at 84; Joe Saures 85 and Tom Tebuteb, 89.

RGA also welcome Nick Guerrero back to the group.
