AVONDALE, La. – Seung-Yul Noh is wearing yellow and black ribbons this week to honor the victims of the South Korean ferry accident.
More than 300 people are dead or missing after the April 16 ferry disaster near his home country.
“Hopefully I’ll make all the Korean people happy,” he said Saturday night. “It was very sad news for the Korean ship, so hopefully another bogey-free round tomorrow, and hopefully good news for the Koreans.”
Earlier this week, Noh said that he did not know anyone directly affected by the tragedy.
The 22-year-old is leading the Zurich Classic by two shots at 18-under 198. It is his first-ever 54-hole lead on the PGA Tour.
