Kim Joo-hyung (21)’s ransom jumped 50 times in 3 years of debut.

On the 3rd (Korean time), Kim Joo-hyung, the ‘rising star’ of the American Professional Golf (PGA) Tour, announced the news of his contract with Nike through his SNS. He released photos and videos of training in a Nike hat and clothes ahead of the PGA Tour Sentry Tournament of Champions, which opens on the 6th. 메이저놀이터

Since the contract was signed in the US, the exact terms and conditions such as the down payment were not disclosed. However, it is expected that he will receive at least 5 million dollars (about 6.3 billion won). This is about 50 times higher than the contract with CJ three years ago.

Joohyung Kim was sponsored by CJ for three years starting in 2020. At the time of his contract, the estimated ransom for Kim Joo-hyung, who played on the Asian Tour and Korean Tour, was between 100 million and 150 million won.

CJ pushed for a renewal of the contract at the end of last year. Word leaked out that he offered an annual down payment of around 1.5 million dollars in consideration of the effect of increasing his status, such as winning the PGA Tour. However, as Nike offered better terms, he chose a beautiful farewell.

The reason Kim Joo-hyung’s ransom soared to the ceiling is not only his outstanding skills, but also the result of adding future value to these various charms. 토토

Global companies sponsoring players on the PGA Tour, such as Nike, determine down payment based on winning records, world rankings, and future value. It is common for players within the top 50 in the men’s golf world rankings to start at least $2 million.

Kim Joo-hyung is the third Nike to sponsor a Korean player, following Choi Gyeong-ju (52) and Roh Seung-yeol (31). If there is a difference, it is the evaluation of Kim Joo-hyung and the increased ransom.
