Golfer, Bio Kim has been given a three-year ban from the Korean Tour after making an obscene gesture to a spectator.
The 29-year-old Korean won the Daegu-Gyeongbuk Open in his homeland but was disciplined after raising his middle finger towards the crowd after being distracted while teeing off.
He was also fined £6,750 by the Korean Professional Golfers’ Association. It said he had “damaged the dignity of a golfer with an etiquette violation and inappropriate behaviour”. Kim, leading money earner on the Korea Tour, reacted on the 16th tee of his final round when a smartphone sounded during his swing, and his drive went just 100 yards.
