Local Korean-American amateur golfer Peter Jung will make his PGA debut next month at the Sony Open in Hawaii.

Jung, 16 and a sophomore at Maryknoll School, has been golfing since age 8, when his father, Sung Yup Jung, introduced him to the game. Jung clinched the Nov. 19 amateur qualifying event at Waialae Country Club, shooting a 72 with two bogeys on the front nine and birdieing both par-5’s in the back nine.

Michelle Wie was 14 when she played in the Sony Open, making her PGA debut in 2004, entering the tournament with a sponsor exemption.

Jung will be the first local male Korean-American amateur to play in the tournament. Peter Jung, as Koreans would say, “fighting!”
