After Byeong-Hun An explicitly complained about his frequent early tee time placements, the PGA Tour heard him loud and clear.
An is listed to launch off the Rocket Mortgage Classic at Detroit Golf Club on Thursday with a 6:45 a.m. tee time. However, with that being the fourth time in the last eight tournaments that he’s had to break out his driver at the break of dawn, he colorfully voiced his displeasure.
When people who’d love to golf for a living were quick to criticize Hun An, he defended his complaint.
The last time the 29-year-old had a Day 1 tee time in the afternoon was the Valero Texas Open in April. Since then, his latest tee time was 8:15 a.m. (Palmetto Championship) aside from the Charles Schwab Challenge where he teed off at 11:10 a.m. In his last 15 events, he has teed off seven times at 7:22 a.m. or earlier in the first and second rounds.
Fans can follow the PGA TOUR on the No. 1 site in golf, on the PGA TOUR app and on social media channels, including Facebook, Instagram (in English, Spanish and Korean), LinkedIn, Twitter, TikTok, WeChat, Weibo, Toutiao and Douyin.
