PGA Tour rookie Chan Kim had the funniest reaction after he missed the cut by one stroke at the Sony Open despite nearly making two aces.

PGA Tour rookie Chan Kim revealed he was praying he just didn’t finish dead last at the Sony Open.

The 33-year-old made his first start on the North American circuit at Waialae Country Club.

Things didn’t pan out as he wanted as he failed to make it to the weekend, missing the cut by one stroke.

But with not just one, but two near aces, he was left to ponder what might have been.

First, his ball raced back down to the front of the green as it clattered off the flag stick. In the end, he required three putts due to bogey.

The second, in his second round, was a complete dart that gave him the simplest putts to make for birdie.

He jokingly said, “I mean, golf, right?” following his round.

Kim wasn’t the only well-known person to miss the cut; Matthew Fitzpatrick, Sahith Theegala, and Lucas Glover were among them.

Will Zalatoris and Gary Woodland, who are both recovering from injuries, were also unable to attend the weekend.

However, Kim’s only satisfaction was that he avoided the bottom spot on the leaderboard.

As he told reporters, “I was just praying I don’t finish dead last.”

“I started bogey, par, and made a run of bogeys after I was 1-over on the turn.

“Oh my god, please try not to finish dead last,” I exclaimed.

“What an incredible Tour and experience, and I’m proud to be a member of the PGA Tour,” he continued.

“[I] am really excited about the upcoming events.”
